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.

On Diversity and Inclusion

Special Needs in Strange Worlds on SF Signal has done some pretty amazing things for me. First, SF Signal has a huge number of readers, so moving my efforts over there has done incredible things for getting the cause of disability, and its importance in the genre so much more limelight than I ever could …

Recommended Reading: Social SciFi

I love social science fiction. It’s absolutely addicting. Social SciFi are those books that play with aspects of life as we know it – social classes, sexuality, the relationship between humans and evolving technology. Social SciFi makes you think. They are the books that, when you’re done reading them, you look at the world around …

News – The Non-Bookish Kind

I have a pretty severe joint disorder which has caused me no end of misery (because it hurts and it is very inconvenient) most of my life. That’s why I’ve had most of my surgeries – to fix the things (joints) that don’t work due to this disorder. I have severely limited mobility, and my …

Books I’m Eyeing

Another week has passed. More books have been read  (Currently I am really devouring Blindsight by Peter Watts. Wow, this one is seriously blowing my mindhole.). There isn’t much in the way of updates to report. It’s been slow over here, and that depresses me. Oh well. The SF Signal podcast where I was lucky enough …
