About meI am a writer, book reviewer, librarian, and cat rescuer, not necessarily in that order. My short fiction has appeared in Strange Horizons, Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, and two of the Star Trek: Strange New Worlds anthologies. I also have a story in The Sky's the Limit, an anthology from Pocket Books celebrating the 20th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation (October 2007). I am a graduate of the Clarion West Writers Workshop (class of 2000). Hobbies include entertaining my collection of ex-stray cats, making art trading cards, learning Japanese, and trying to recover my long-lost German fluency.

About my libraryMy physical library consists primarily of science fiction and fantasy, young adult fiction, children's books, and girls' career romance novels from the 1930s to the 1960s. In addition to my own books, I also catalog those books that I either no longer own, or that I have read but do not own, and use tags and collections to identify them as such.
