Welcome to my home on the Internet.
I will try to keep it less cluttered
than my office. . . but no guarantees.

I'm a fantasy and science fiction writer
who sometimes dabbles in military fiction
and mysteries. And I'm an avid reader
who has far too many books to fit on my
bookshelves. However, I recently got a Nook, so now I can stuff it full of books instead.

I live in Illinois, in a tiny town that has a gas station, a Dollar General, and a pizza place that has exceedingly slow service. I share my life and my house with my husband, three dogs, an obnoxious parrot, and an assortment of tropical fish.

I'm always working on a new project or three.

At the moment, I'm working on an urban fantasy book with Donald J. Bingle. I just finished an urban fantasy set in NYC (I put it in my agent's hands, we'll see what he thinks).

On the editing front, I tackle anthologies from time-to-time, such as working on Athena's Daughters for the great Silence in the Library folks. And I had the great fortune to compile the short fiction of Andre Norton.

Being busy is a good thing!
