First things first! I attended Clarion ages ago, in 1982, and am grateful for what I learned there. My novels, short fiction, and poetry have appeared regularly for the past 30 years, both in the U.S. and abroad. My work has earned a number of awards, including three Bram Stoker Awards and an International Horror Guild Award. Cat in Glass and Other Tales of the Unnatural, my collection of short dark fantasy, was named an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. I live and work in Northern California, where I garden, cook, and watch rabbits when I'm not writing. Oh, and I am now the servant of two eerily bright cats.
Is it real, or is it just in your imagination? That's my favorite subject matter.
It's been an unusually eventful year for me (and everyone else). For a writer, that means plenty of new material to draw on. I have been writing poems at the rate of about one each week. I want to organize them and create a book manuscript from the best ones by the end of the Write-a-Thon.
Clarion was a big boost to my writing career. Each year I look forward to paying that debt forward during the Write-a-Thon. I hope to raise at least $500.
Alas, the Clarion Write-a-Thon has ended, with $11,776.70 raised so far! However, we are still accepting donations. Thank you for your support!
