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 three officially licensed Star Trek anthologies from Pocket Books. I'm 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.
