BIOGRAPHY I was born in California, have lived in Washington State, Indiana, Montana, and numerous fictional states, worlds, and universes. I'm married to my one true love.
My short stories, novels, and novellas range from the possible to the weird. I am a careful proofreader. I love the fiction of Octavia E. Butler, Stephen King, C. J. Cherryh, Patricia Briggs, Ursula K. LeGuin, and of course many others too numerous to mention. I was once an English teacher, but don't let that scare you.
