Writer. Adventurer. Currently working on The Dreamless City, a series of steampunk novels and short stories.


I did a crazy thing and got published in an anthology.  I’m still rather amazed when I look at the cover.  See, my name, it’s right there.  (Pointing and gleeful giggling ensue.)

It’s a really cool project that I’m glad to be involved in.  It is a book of firsts, by which I mean first stories in a world or series, not firsts in publishing.  Most of the other science fiction and fantasy authors have many stories under their belts.  They aren’t noobs like me.  xD  It has been a pleasure working with them and I am certainly eager to try new opportunities like this in the future.

If you would like to check out ENCHANTMENTS & EXPERIMENTS, that would be super awesome.  I recommend the Jewish SF story about a desperate factory worker and a golem.  Also, I’d love some feedback for my story about a young alchemist trying to free her brother from a freaky carnival.



Eleven tales of intrigue and action, magic and engineering …

A young woman fights to free her brother, enslaved in a carnival where nothing is as it seems. (That one’s mine!) A rebel super soldier must choose between her humanity and her freedom.  Holed up in a remote bomb shelter in Georgia, a businessman faces the end of the United States. A Jump Mage, one of the order that binds humanity’s interstellar colonies together, makes a desperate choice…only to wind up with allies even more desperate than he is. A reluctant hero must come to terms with his own choices. In a factory that produces magical golems, a worker resorts to any means necessary to secure her freedom. From dragons to cyborgs, from the past to the far future, these stories and more come to life in this anthology!
