Have Book, Will Read #17

It’s snowing, and I’m home with my kids watching big flakes tumble down outside. This is perfect weather for reading, writing, or talking about books someone else wrote! Preferably with a blanket and a big mug of tea. After a busy (and wonderful) December, with a houseful of visiting family, January brought silence and a... Continue Reading →

Writing Boys, Part 2

*contains mild spoilers for Heart Blade and Night Blade* There are a LOT of articles and blog posts floating around out there at the moment about how to write great female characters.

Winter 2017 Updates

NIGHT BLADE  has been out a month already! It's amazing (to me) that I'm closing out 2017 with two published novels.

Spring 2017 Updates

Connecticut finally has its Spring on. Tiny baby leaves have tiptoed over the treetops like a green mist, and forsythia is blazing in glorious yellow splendor. The sun is shining. I have daffodils in the garden, and Easter chocolate is on sale everywhere you look.   So, what's new in my world? I've finished Book 2 in... Continue Reading →

Boskone 54

Last weekend I made what has become my yearly pilgrimage to Boskone. For those who have never heard of it (and if you live in New England, you’ve definitely been missing out!), Boskone is a great science fiction and fantasy convention that leans heavily toward SF/F writers and readers.
