I talk about a bunch of science fiction and fantasy novels. Mostly fantasy. :)
And I’m back to talk some more about books! This time I’ll be discussing SF/F novels I read and liked this year. Most of the titles I’m going to be talking about are fantasy. A few of them are alte…

Politics and living an examined life.
When I started this blog, I made the explicit decision that I wouldn’t talk about politics. Of course, one could argue that everything is political. I have written from time to time about feminist …

On the power and trust of commitment.
Once upon a time I was talking to someone about my writing. And this person said to me, “Yeah, but if you don’t succeed in a year or so, you’d probably quit and try something else, right?” And I th…

What I think after one year of dancing.
My one-year dancing anniversary took place last month. Yes, I’m still dancing. And it’s much more enjoyable now that my problem toe has finally stopped hurting as much. I’m beginning to rebuild the…

I think about time. Time is real. We measure it. We build highly accurate mechanisms to measure the seconds, minutes, hours, and days that make up the stream. We measure time in sand, in wind-up ge…

i understand. time was created because we forgot our souls are eternal. thus we are afraid of dying, afraid of the unknown.

I am working on a retelling, and here is what I've been thinking about.
I’ve been thinking about retellings. A few years ago I wrote a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, and I’ve recently started a new novel that is also a retelling. I’ve done a few short story retelli...

Some of my favorite books I read this year: the YA, non-fiction, literary edition. :)
It’s time for my year-end reading wrap-up posts. It’s been a weird year for many reasons, but over the course of the year I’ve still been able to read about the same amount as last year, so that ma…

Stuff has a weight. It doesn’t matter if it all has its own place. It doesn’t matter if much of it is hidden away behind doors and in cupboards and drawers. It doesn’t matter if it’s nice stuff or …

In which I have an intense weekend.
This weekend I attended two conventions simultaneously, which required much driving and socializing and very little sleep. I joked that one was a literary convention that required my brain and the …

It's going to be a loooong spring. :)
I have a lot of stuff. I am not extreme, in that I don’t have a storage unit and my apartment doesn’t require daily excavation to get from point A to point B. In general, each piece of my stuff has…

Yeah.  This time, I'd been doing a fair bit of packing of not-needed-immediately things just to declutter (and knowing/hoping we'd be moving in a few months), and then with the real packing I also somewhat separated the few boxes of "I want these in a time-important way" from the rest, so I'm not feeling the urge to unpack the rest in a hurry.

When you have a lot on your mind, going to the Rainforest Writers Retreat is a pretty great thing to do. There’s something so freeing about having no cell reception. No one can reach you. NO ONE. E…

I was thinking the other day about how so many of my interests have been influenced by friendship. Certainly not all of them. I’ve been a reader, writer, and musician since I was seven, and those i...

Story
Tagline
Writer of SF/F and YA; music teacher
Introduction

I'm a science fiction, fantasy, and YA writer, and I also regularly write essays for my blog, The Practical Free Spirit. 

In addition to posting content relevant to writerdom and geek culture (I adore Star Wars and Buffy the Vampire Slayer), I am interested in a wide range of subjects: music, theater, technology, sociology, philosophy, history, economics, anthropology, psychology, etc. In other words, I'm really fascinated by why humanity is the way it is both on an individual and a societal level, the forces that change and shape it, and the different perspectives and experiences that it encompasses. 

I also like little dogs, Disneyland, ice cream, and Christmas.

Bragging rights
I've traveled to six of the seven continents (no, I haven't visited Antarctica...yet).
