How every work call starts... ;)
 
KATE BAKER IS ANNOYED WITH ME!

(I'd like to pretend this is the normal state of our relationship but in fact she was looking something up on google and concentrating when I snapped the picture. Wasn't annoyed with me at all.)

EVERYONE SHOULD DO A CAPTION CONTEST OF THIS!

Besides this being an awesome potential anthology with a lot of great authors, there are a ton of great gifts for your support. At the $250 support tier, I will narrate your short story (up to 7K words). There are only five of these at this time, so please, grab them while they last. At the 17K stretch goal, we make this anthology into an audio book and guess who has two thumbs and gets to take the lead on that? THIS GIRL! Make this happen! If you can't support monetarily, a share to those wonderful friends of yours is greatly appreciated. Spreading the word is just as important!
UPGRADED is an original science fiction anthology for the cyborg age. Stronger... better... faster... We will rebuild you.

I am the Podcast Director and Non-fiction Editor for Clarkesworld Magazine. I have been very privileged to narrate over 250 short stories/poems by some of the biggest names in Science Fiction and Fantasy. Since joining the Clarkesworld staff in 2009, I have read over 200 stories (800K+ words) and the Clarkesworld Podcast has been downloaded over 1.8 million times.

I won the Hugo Award for Best Semiprozine in 2011 and 2013,  the British Fantasy Award for Best Magazine  in 2014 and the World Fantasy Award for Special Award: Non Professional in 2014 alongside the wonderfully talented editorial staff of Clarkesworld Magazine.

I have also read for various other audio venues such as StarShipSofa, Escape Pod, Nightmare Magazine, Mash Stories, The Drabblecast and Cast of Wonders.

I am currently situated in Northern Connecticut with my first fans, my children. I am currently working as the Operations Manager for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.
