- I am a writer of science fiction and fantasy and an alumna (Class of ’94) of the Clarion West Writer’s Workshop, an intensive six-week program for writers of speculative fiction held every summer in my current hometown of Seattle. Attending it was a mind-blowing experience for me, and for many others before and since.
- My story entitled “The Book of Permissions” has been published in New Altars, a speculative fiction theme anthology on religion–past, present, future, and alternative. (This is anything but a doctrinaire book; otherwise, would one of my stories be in it?) You can ask for New Altars at your friendly neighborhood bookstore or order it direct from Amazon.com.
- I am also at work on a new novel. High concept summary: The Gold Rush meets Blade Runner, with a bit of The Crying Game thrown in just to confuse matters.
- And in June of 1998 I finished a generally rewarding run through the Creative Writing Program of the University of Washington Extension.
