About Me

I spin, knit, and read P.G. Wodehouse, Jane Austen, Anthony Trollope and Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin novels obsessively. Once, it said I collect nail polish and fountain pen ink, but that's on a possibly-permanent hiatus: I had a massive, near-fatal stroke in late 2014, and I see double. Consequently, one eye is covered; which eye is covered depends on whether I'm reading or just looking around. 


I am--hopefully, still am--a writer. I write science fiction and fantasy, primarily in Victorian worlds though not necessarily steampunk. I was the November story prompt in Neil Gaiman's "A Calendar of Tales." I have three books at Amazon, as well as several short stories. 


I live with my husband and two teenaged daughters in a 130-year-old house in Portland, Oregon.

    Apart from BPAL, I am a writer, under the name MeiLin Miranda and my real name, Lynn Siprelle. I am currently recovering from a massive stroke that nearly killed me in late 2014, and haven't written (apart from stuff like this) since.

    I read voraciously. Favorites include Gaiman, Austen, Dickens, Trollope, Heyer and the Brontes. My favorite books of all time, though, are Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series.

    I am more or less a Pagan.

    I also spin and knit, and mother two teenaged girls.
