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.

Sometimes Good Things Happen

Wow. So this is something I never thought I’d write. I’ve been writing a book. The working title is Seraphina’s Lament, and it sits firmly under the dark epic fantasy banner. Really dark. Really, really dark. So I was writing this book more because I just had a story to tell, rather than anything serious. …

Guest Post | A Deeper World – G. R. Matthews

About the Author Geoff Matthews began reading in the cot. His mother, at her wits end with the constant noise and unceasing activity, would plop him down on the soft mattress with an encyclopaedia full of pictures then quietly slip from the room. His father, ever the pragmatist, declared, that they should, “throw the noisy …

#SPFBO 2017 | Round 3 Mini Reviews

First of all, I am so very sorry this post has been so delayed. August has really been wiping me out. My two-year-old with a congenital kidney disorder had to undergo some really stressful tests at the hospital. I had my own medical crap going on (a temporary spine stimulator inserted into my spinal column). …

My SciFi Life | An Update (of sorts)

I’ve been a little out of commission recently. There are reasons for that, mostly health reasons (I can hear your gasp of surprise now). My almost two-year-old has a congenital kidney disorder and we had to take her back to the children’s hospital for a round of really horrible tests. I had a doctor’s appointment …

The Punch Escrow – Tal M. Klein

About the Book It’s the year 2147. Advancements in nanotechnology have enabled us to control aging. We’ve genetically engineered mosquitoes to feast on carbon fumes instead of blood, ending air pollution. And teleportation has become the ideal mode of transportation, offered exclusively by International Transport—a secretive firm headquartered in New York City. Their slogan: Departure… Arrival… …

Beyond Redemption – Michael R. Fletcher

About the Book Faith shapes the landscape, defines the laws of physics, and makes a mockery of truth. Common knowledge isn’t an axiom, it’s a force of nature. What the masses believe is. But insanity is a weapon, conviction a shield. Delusions give birth to foul new gods. Violent and dark, the world is filled …
