Writer Bio

Writer of short stories and novels for adults and younger readers since 1989. Editor, teacher, knitter, traveler. Cafe writer, retreat enthusiast.

Writing Style

Historical/fantastical/tragical/comical/pastoral/urban. Sometimes with fairies or vampires, sometimes not.

Writing Goal

Tough. I'm changing them anyway. Owing to a revised deadline, I'll be working on the final edits for my forthcoming MG, THE EVIL WIZARD SMALLBONE. I'll be teaching at the same time, so I'll say 8 chapters is a reasonable goal. I will be writing under the #40minutesaday plan, with updates posted daily on FB.

Fundraising Goal


writing goal:
3 chapters written
