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

Last book: Boneshaker (I was late on the hype wagon) Fave: Clarke, Tolkien, King, Healey

What would you like to improve with your writing?

I'm currently playing with setting-as-character so that PLACE plays a role in everything.

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

I favor magical realism, both adult and YA.

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

Best: Write it all - you have to write the shit to make room for the good stuff. Worst: Outline everything.

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

Depends on the group. If no one is saying anything, I can certainly lead a discussion.


I am not a robot. I write, edit, and polish my nails; enjoy talking about fat, embodiment, and eyeshadow; and obsess over shoes. I'm an unashamed nerd. My book: Lessons from the Fat-o-sphere: Quit Dieting and Declare a Truce with Your Body.
