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.

Going Dark

A thing happened yesterday, and I am at fault. A heartfelt apology was released, but after checking my email this morning, I have learned that apparently I haven’t apologized hard enough/I am the worst person who has ever been born, and I just can’t deal with it. So I’m going dark. I have a few …

Announcing Thrawn and On and On


Did you guys know that Star Wars is a thing? I’m sure you did. I, however, avoided it until I saw Episode VII, and then I wanted to read ALL THE STAR WARS THINGS (I am currently doing a read through of the first trilogy, my first write up is here). Well, I went online …

Adult Coloring Books – A Review (sort of)

From The Enchanted Forest

Adult coloring is the new Big Thing. It’s something that I never thought I’d actually get into doing, and then life happened and I realized that having something to kind of zen me out while I was in the middle of a storm would be valuable, and probably keep my family from hating me. I …
