Who are some of your favorite writers? Or the last book you have read?

My favorite authors probably cover a range of genres. Elizabeth Peters and Laurie R. King for historical mystery. Terry Pratchett for fantasy. I grew up reading Clarke, Asimov and Heinlein.

What would you like to improve with your writing?

Deep POV, melding emotion, and description. I tend to be a dialogue writer.

What genres do you tend to write? For example, paranormal romance, hard science fiction, etc.

Well, lately it's been paranormal erotica. But the WIPs that have been getting less attention are the paranormal mystery and the YAish Fantasy novel.

What is the best or worst piece of writing advice you've ever been given?

"Easiest way to write a book - plagiarize."

When participating in small group discussions, do you more often listen or wait to speak?

I'm flexible. I've been in enough workshop situations to be comfortable kicking off the discussion if needed. I've also been well trained to not speak if my work is being critiqued.


Hi, I'm a local author and an editor for Mundania Press. MA in Creative Writing. Currently working for a small social media company for the day job. (I pick up one or two projects a month from Mundania.)
