What kind of project are you working on?

I have several short stories in revision that are in the slipstream/mythopoetic vein. I'm revising a pulp adventure fantasy that I've been shopping around to agents, and I'm 50k words in to a pseudo Renaissance Italy city-state fantasy (currently on hold during revisions).

What are you reading right now?

I brought back a *huge* stack of schwag from World Fantasy this year, so I'm working through that. Cat Valente's books are at the top.

Who's your favorite SFF author?

For short fiction, Connie Willis, Neil Gaiman, and Charles deLint - which isn't to say that I write like any of them. I just think short fiction is very difficult to nail, and those three manage it regularly. For epic fantasy, George R.R. Martin and Robin Hobb. For high-concept stuff, China Mieville and Neal Stephenson. My childhood favorites are Katherine Kurtz and Meredith Ann Pierce. I haven't read any of her stuff yet, but I've been told that I will adore Catherynne Valente. We shall see. I'm also excited to read Malinda Lo's queer YA (_Ash_ and _Huntress_).

Introduction

I am an editor for a textbook publisher and a fantasy writer. I recently had my first pro-level publication through Daily Science Fiction, and I'm revising my first novel at the request of an agent. Still a long way to go, though!
