I write science fiction and fantasy, both novels and... Well, I'd say short stories, but they often wind up as novelettes. Or novellas. Usually novellas. My parents observed early on that I was a yakky kid.I was born in Torrance, California. After that, my family moved to Houston, Texas; Beloit, Wisconsin; South Plainfield, New Jersey; and Rockton, Illinois. Since I was still short a few states at that point, I moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota after graduating from Beloit College. From there, I moved to Los Angeles, California; Bisbee, Arizona; and Tucson, Arizona.Hmm. Still short a few states.I'm married to author Will Shetterly. I have two cats: Toby, the best cat in the world; and Barnabas, the worst cat in the world.I'd list my published work, but hey, this is Amazon.com! If there isn't already a link to everything somewhere around here, just search for me!In addition to my solo writing, I'm the Executive Producer of Shadow Unit, the best science fiction thriller TV show in prose form ever. So far, at least. My Co-Producer is Elizabeth Bear. Writing staff includes Will Shetterly, Sarah Monette, Amanda Downum, Leah Bobet, Chelsea Polk, and Holly Black. We're in our third season as I write this. Check it out at www.shadowunit.org.As my Amazon Wish List shows, I'm a Man from Uncle and Wild, Wild West fan. I crochet. I sew. I like cowboy reenacting and Victorian dress-up and dancing. I also play guitar and sing, and was proud to be a member of Minneapolis band Cats Laughing and goth-folk duo the Flash Girls.I'm just a little bit obsessed with coffee.

This is an odd book–it skirts right around the edges of being fantasy, and reminds me a bit more of Dorothy Dunnett’s Lymond books than anything else. I liked most of the characters quite a bit but occasionally wanted to tell James to stop being so self-absorbed and annoying. It’s not exactly what I...

This is a classic of the genre, for sure, but I love this for so many more reasons than its place in the fantasy world. This has some of the best plotting, characterization and relationships I've ever read. Definitely one of my favorite books of all time. My full review is here, on Hot Stuff for Coo...

Anthology. I didn't read them all and I skipped a couple, so my rating is based only on the stories I read. 3.2 stars average. 1. A Bird that Whistles by Emma Bull. A music mentor with something different and a life lesson (?) I liked the story. 3-1/2 stars2. Make a Joyful Noise by Charles de Lint. ...
