About My Library
Primarily historical research books for my writing and other useful non-fiction in areas of personal interest like earth science, epidemiology, space, and travel, with a handful of my favorite fiction just for fun. These are all books physically in my possession (though I have started a wish list of books I want to read); my goal is to keep better track of what I have so I don't start acquiring second copies (which is just plain embarrassing). Cataloguing is still ongoing; I haven't gotten to much of my fiction yet, though I finally did my cookbooks after a year and a quarter here. :)

About Me
Author of young adult historical fantasies Bewitching Season, Betraying Season, and Courtship and Curses, all from Henry Holt Books for Young Readers/Macmillan, and a couple of adult contemporary fantasies out from various publishers. I also blog on 19th century history from a teen perspective at http://nineteenteen.com. Happily married for 33 years to a very patient man who doesn't complain about having to build me more bookshelves at frequent intervals. Mom of three not-too-screwed-up kids and a pair of adorable and imperious house rabbits. Quilter, gardener, sailor, antiques collector.
