I write speculative fiction (umbrella term for fantasy and science fiction), primarily secondary world fantasy – which is set in a world other than our own.  I have a preference for high fantasy mixed with intrigue, and dabble in what is called mannerpunk, fantasy of manners.  You’ll also find some humorous stories and soft science fiction.  Fantasy mysteries are a recent fascination of mine, and I strive to apply the rules of fair play to my fiction.

As for poetry, I’m a traditionalist at heart:  I love form poetry, from sonnets to villanelles.  I love to make magic within the strictures of the form.

SCYLLA AND CHARYBDIS

For Anaea Carlisle – raised on an isolated space station populated solely by women – the world is far too small.  On a salvage mission, she helps rescue a hypermental named Gwydion who challenges everything she thought she knew.  When she flees the station to prevent him from having his memory erased, she finds herself in a brand-new world and struggling to find a home.

FLOW

… contemporary fantasy novel which follows the water-witch Chailyn, on dry land for her first mission, and Kit, a contemporary teen with mysterious powers, as they seek the man who killed Kit’s mother … a goal which catches the interest of the darkest of fairies.  They must also deal with the Borderwatch, a zealous organization that hunts fairies and has been in a cold war with the water-witches for decades.
