I'm a writer of novels, short stories, essays, magazine articles, and poetry. Most of my writing is in the realm of speculative fiction--fantasy, science fiction, and subgenres therein. Since technology hasn't created a way for me to beam fresh baked goods around the internet (yet), I invite you to instead browse my published material online in the bibliography.
The Catch A Star As It Falls Blog is updated several times a week with publication news, cookie recipes, and somewhat-coherent ramblings.
If you're curious about who I am, head over to the biography section. That's also where you find out how to contact me.
To summarize my background: I'm a girl from Hanford, California (and no, that's not near L.A. or San Francisco) who married a Navy sailor and moved from coastline to coastline. Now that sailor is a happy civilian, and we're settled down in scalding-hot Arizona. Our son is number-obsessed and our cat is large enough to create gravitational pull. I bake. I write. I dance, badly.
Welcome to my site! As always, lots of stuff going on...
My story "Clementine, Who Swims with Mermaids" is featured in the Oceans issue of Penumbra.
I've had quite a few poems published recently, including "The Truth About Fairies" in Star*Line 36.2, an autobiographical poem "autism" at Every Day Poets, a steampunk poem "Mice" in issue 28 of Mythic Delirium, and "Cloud Shapers" in Illumen.
In the realm of nonfiction, I have two new stories: "We Love Vermont" is in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Raising Kids on the Spectrum and "Queries, Agents, and Insomnia" is in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Writers.
In 2013 I'll have stories in the Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Oomph, Blue Shift Magazine, and Big Pulp, and poems in Tales of the Talisman, Abyss & Apex, Star*Line and Space and Time Magazine. My nonfiction will be in Chicken Soup for the Soul.
In 2014, I'll have a poem in Tales of the Talisman. More good news to come!
