Writer Bio

I started writing about the land of Mâvarin and its characters way back in 1974. About 400k words later, I'm still it it. Along the way I've edited and written for fanzines, a church newsletter, Starlog and Doctor Who trading cards. A guy I met at Clarion, John Blocher, has been my husband for 37 years and counting. I'm determined to finish the first trilogy this year.

Writing Style

Aside from non-fiction, I write mostly fantasy, occasionally straying into science fantasy. I seldom write short fiction. Serials become novelettes, and novels become trilogies.

Writing Goal

I have a handful of scenes to write for the ending chapters of Heirs of Mavarin: Castle in the Swamp. Then I need to make one last serious run through the trilogy before I call it done at last.
