I'm a writer of science fiction and fantasy. I collate the Locus "books sold" announcements, so that we can track who sold what to whom, via which agent. Announcements about updates will always have the word "Locus" in the tags.

Research for my books has led me to many fascinating places and down many interesting paths. I've punctured targets at shooting galleries; learned to be hip in belly dancing classes; dived with sharks; researched multiple personalities and bounty hunters. I have flown over the Nazca lines in Peru to research leylines, and dived the biggest diveable ocean liner shipwreck in the world in Vanuatu. I’m a huge fan of the Hero’s Journey writing structure and I apply it where possible to all my works. I'm also a librarian, a wife, a mother, and may babble about any of the above with no prior warning.
