OBLIGATORY BIO STUFF
I write speculative fiction from my little corner of Massachusetts, where I live with my tolerant husband, two mischievous black kittens, and two amazing kids. I'm a member of Broad Universe, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, encouraging, honoring, and celebrating women writers and editors in science fiction, fantasy, horror and other speculative genres.
My poetry has been published in Tales of the Zombie War, The Wayfarer: A Journal of Contemplative Literature, Strong Verse, Eternal Haunted Summer, newWitch, Pagan Edge and High Coup Journal. I have an article in the anthology _Pagan Writers Presents Samhain_ and my first published short story "Essie" appeared in _Luna Station Quarterly_. My chapbook of poetry is due out in November 2013, and I am a contributor to the forthcoming Paganism 101.
IMPORTANT INSIGHT STUFF
But what you really want to know is the important stuff, right? Here it is: I can be bribed with good-quality chocolate, Italian red wine, and superb espresso. I dislike people who are judgmental. I think the world is shades of gray (no reference to "the book" intended.). And I'm an Aquarian who enjoys romantic dinners and long walks on the beach.
Oh, and I love books. And science. And science fiction. And books about science fiction and/or science.
I'm currently writing a novel about the teenage embodiment of the Goddess Kwan Yin. (You can find a snippet on my webpage.) I have another novel on hiatus, and am writing my take on the zombie trope as a short story.
Although I've spent most of my life writing (in my head, if not on paper), I've earned degrees in Communication and Sociology in lieu of anything "literary." Yup, I've got a Bachelor's in Communication Theory and a Master's in Sociology. Because that's how I roll. Why take a straight path to something when you can zig-zag along, wasting time--er, gaining experience--and annoying your loved ones in the process.

A quick and satisfying read. Was a bit taken aback by the poem-like format, but found it easy to follow. Looking forward to the next installment!
