She received the Encouragement Award from The European Science Fiction Society at Eurocon 2013.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It's like daydreaming, only better. Through writing, you can share your adventures with other people. Hopefully, they'll enjoy them too.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I do. I didn't like the way a novel had ended, and I decided to give the characters a second chance. It might have worked if I had actually finished the story, but I got pretty far with it in my head.
