She also writes romances under the pen name Kim Strattford.Gerri is a big supporter of animal rescue and currently has two rescue cats, siblings named Simon and River. She follows horse racing with a fervid passion not shared by most of the world and someday will get to go to The Breeders' Cup.Favorite authors include (in no particular order): Connie Willis, Max Barry, Matt Ruff, Douglas Coupland, Stewart O'Nan, Robert A. Heinlein, Alice Hoffman, Armistead Maupin, Gillian Flynn, and Laurie Halse Anderson. Visit her website at www.gerrileen.com.

So when the first Sword and Sorceress was published, I immediately grabbed it, and it was love at first sight of the cov...
