I’m a Canadian-born fantasy and science fiction writer, currently living in the Boston area. While I enjoy both reading and writing within many different genres and sub-genres, I admit to a particular fondness for high fantasy, most particularly for those multi-volume series of 800+ page novels that everyone loves to make fun of. Especially the ones with elves.
Although I am working on my own 800+ page novel (with elves!), everything I’ve published so far has been short fiction. I’ve listed all my publications below; if you’re interested in reading any of the stories, you can find links on the Start Reading tab.

I’m a 2008 graduate of the Clarion West Writers Workshop in Seattle, a member of SF Canada, and a member of two local writers groups: speculative fiction group BRAWL, and another group at my church. I also attend several science fiction conventions throughout the year, such as Readercon, Boskone, Arisia, World Fantasy and Worldcon, more often than not accompanied by my husband, fantasy / horror / science fiction writer Donald S. Crankshaw (you should read his stories, too).
