Author's details

Date registered: April 11, 2012


I am a book blogger and the owner of Bookworm Blues - a popular speculative fiction book review website. I have been a compulsive reader all my life. Early on found my reading niche in the fantastic genre of Speculative Fiction. I blame my active imagination for the hobbies that threaten to consume my life. A freelance writer and photographer, world traveler and recent college graduate, I'm also a new mother, cancer fighter & survivor. In my ideal world, I'd do nothing but drink lots of tea and read from a never ending pile of speculative fiction books. Respected as a reviewer, I receive book ARCs from all of the major and most minor publishers in science fiction and fantasy. But given my love of stories, I've always wanted to be a part of the creative process, and editing is my first step in that direction.

A Hearty Congratulations!

Every year this happens. The short list is announced and I go into hiding for a few weeks until the hubbub dies down. Every year there is a controversy, and every year there are long, long discussions about why so-and-so is on there (what an asshole) and so-and-so isn’t (who is the absolute ideal of …

Books I’m Eyeing

This week has been insane. The Shattered Worlds project was announced. I wrote about 3,000 words and then deleted every last one of them. I have yet to get myself to write another word. It’s an odd thing to be on this side of publishing. It is making me realize that there is a lot …
