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.

Our internet has been having issues recently. We’ve had a guy out to fix it, and apparently the issue is “well known” in our area and it’s attributed to “bad wiring somewhere.” Comcast can’t figure out where the bad wiring is, so they are trying to hunt it down and fix it (ha ha ha). …

The Macro Monday That Wasn’t

minimalist moonriselogo

I’ve been dealing with some chronic pain issues related to my Ehlers-Danlos. Well, to put it correctly, I’ve been dealing with Ehlers-Danlos, and the associated chronic pain has taken me out of the game in any real way for a while now. Instead of working on new photos (physically, I’m completely unable right now), I’m regurgitating …
