I am an American-Kiwi. I live in New Zealand with my husband.I write sci-fi and fantasy and I am also a staff writer for the online magazine, Harlots’ Sauce – in which I write political, social and cultural commentary.
Interests: I love funnel cakes, orca whales and Star Trek. I play the piano, violin, percussion and bass guitar. I can’t survive in a world without books, music, movies, stuffed animals, real animals, airplanes or sound-reduction headphones. I love learning languages. My fantasy dinner party (with an ever-expanding guest list) would include Tamora Pierce, Mae Jemison, Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, Dr. Alvito Carrasco (my dad), Carl Sagan, Nelson Mandela, Lucy Stone, Harriet Tubman, Elisabeth I, Leonardo DaVinci, and Hypatia. I’m never bored.
