I 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." Check out my website for more.
I spin, knit, read P.G. Wodehouse, Jane Austen, Anthony Trollope and Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin novels obsessively, and have bad addictions to BPAL, nail polish and fountain pen ink. I live with my husband, two homeschooled daughters, two smug cats and a floppy dog in a 130-year-old house in Portland, Oregon.

Apart from BPAL, I am writing a series of novels called "An Intimate History of the Greater Kingdom" in which scent frequently appears. The first two books n the series are out now.
I read voraciously. Favorites include Gaiman, Austen, Dickens, Trollope, Heyer, the Brontes, and I'm currently plowing my way through the Harvard Classics. My favorite books of all time, though, are Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series.
I am a Pagan with special relationships with Mary, Erzulie Freda, Frigga, Odin and Mercury.
I also spin and knit, and mother two teenaged girls.
