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.

Misunderstandings, Coping, and Invisible Illnesses

Warning: This is going to be a personal rant. Absolutely zero book related content. The other day a complete stranger said to me, “Why do you need help with that? Are you lazy or something?” That comment hurt a lot more than that woman will ever realize. The sad thing is, I get a variation …

Sorry for the radio silence…

Sorry for the radio silence. I’ve been dealing with some health issues (surprise, surprise…). I’ve been completely overwhelmed and dealing with it slowly. I should be back to reviewing tomorrow-ish.

2015 Award Eligibility

I just became aware that this was a Thing about a day ago. That’s how delightfully oblivious/busy I typically am. I feel kind of weird doing it for a number of reasons, but in truth I realize that a year is a long time, and I’m pretty proud of some of the stuff I did …
