I've got multiple homes all over the universe. My place in Lunar City was the first, but other planets drew me away and I can't say I don't love them. It's hard sometimes, though. A lot of cultures are rather closed minded when it comes to "special abilities". I look human - for the most part - but when I start moving things or flicking fire from my fingertips, or changing the course of rivers, they tend to get a little freaked out. I can't tell you how many towns I've been chased out of. One even tried to burn me as a witch. Puleeze. You're going to fire someone who can control fire? Anyway, I found the one guy out there in the universe who loves me for who I am and we've been together forever. Thanks to him, I get to write about my adventures and enjoy great friendships with other writers.
Okay, you want real... sheesh.... try to have a little fun...
I'm a writer, a former e-book editor, and a reviewer. In my past, I've been a teacher, secretary, short-order cook, radio DJ, librarian and computer technician. Quite a life I’ve led.
I learned to love reading and writing at a young age thanks to my father. We spent long hours together doing crossword puzzles and word games. By the time I was in junior high, Shakespeare and the Greek tragedies shared book space with Marguerite Henry, Walter Farley, Robert Heinlein and Carolyn Keene. While my tastes have grown, my love of a good story hasn't.
I have twenty years experience as a book reviewer specializing in science fiction, fantasy and romance genres as well as the non-fiction areas of education, computer science and reference manuals. I've got ten years experience as an editor and copy editor and have several years experience as a technical writer, journalist and fiction writer. I have a Bachelor's degree in education, a Master's in Library Science and have taught workshops in book repair, library technology, self-editing for writers, creating cultures for fiction writers, and organizing your life and work.
When not busy with writing, I can be found puttering around the kitchen, baking goodies or doing various crafts. I share my home with my husband, one finicky cat named Pixel who owns us both.
