Biography

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.

SPFBO Round Two – An Overview & Favorite Cover Art

The Overview Well, this weekend my thirty books for the SPFBO arrived. I’ve been poking around in my stash all day, mentally organizing them, going over my system and various things like that.

Macro Monday – erm… Montage Monday

This Saturday was my birthday. We have a habit in our family of not really doing presents as much as something special. I got a few presents. My kids got me a really pretty wind chime. I went out to lunch and ate chicken kebabs. My husband baked me a cake. My real present, however, …

OTHER Awards – A List

Does anyone else feel like the Hugo Award pool has been peed in? I know I do, and I don’t really have a fondness for swimming in pee-pools. Last year with the Puppygate to-do I turned away from the Hugos and started really eyeing a lot of awards that I never paid attention to before. …

And now for something different…. Macro Monday

I do photography. I hesitate to say “I am a photographer” because I think in the grand scope of this art, I have a looooooooooooooooong way to go before I can claim to be/do/own anything remotely professional. Regardless, I love to do it. I have invested a ridiculous amount of time, money, and love in …
