Once Upon A Time, There Was A Princess

Once upon a time, there was a princess. She didn’t live in a castle, or sit around waiting for her handsome prince to come rescue her. Sometimes—okay, a lot of times—she rescued the prince. This princess carried a blaster, didn’t give in to bullies (even when they were much much bigger), or abusers who kept […]


Hold my hand, you know this journey could be long

Another outtakes blog post. I’ve always loved this story, but I could never sell it. It’s all part of my conflicted relationship with short stories. I adore them, I have a million and one ideas for short fiction. Editors of short fiction tell me to go write another book. So I do. I wrote the […]

Will you wake from your dream with a wolf at the door…

I’ve decided to call the bits and pieces, the scenes and false starts I’m posting here outtakes. Like pieces of a film, most of these will wind up on the cutting room floor. Once upon a time, I fell in love with the idea of fairytales. Not the popular or Disney version, but the old, […]

And we’ll drink out old memories and we’ll drink in the dawn

Once again, I’m every writer’s bad example. There is an alternate-history-fantasy story I’ve tried to forget, and that I just can’t. I wrote a whole novel with these characters–a novel that needs major work on the pacing in the middle. It’s dark and Gothic, set in a place that never was, and I love the […]

Don’t you remember it was rain that drowned you

Father’s Day…for some reason this year I miss my father. I don’t remember when I started prefacing any discussion or stories about my dad with “He did the best he could.” My father was deeply flawed, problematic in his attitudes and beliefs, often angry and exhausted from working overtime–and did the best he could as […]

Something I wrote last night

I’ve been sharing snippets of the WIP on Twitter each night. I don’t always have a line that fits 140 characters, but most days I do. I wanted to share a paragraph I wrote last night, which may or may not survive revisions. But it said something to me about friendship, support, and finding your […]

Throw yourself in the midst of danger, but keep one eye open at night

I’m always making something. If I’m not writing, I’m quilting, crocheting, or doing some kind of craft. I can’t just sit and watch a movie, or one of the TV shows in my queue, I have to do something with my hands. My dining room table is covered in baby presents I’m making for a […]


I was just guessing at numbers and figures, pulling the puzzles apart

A Parliament Of Queens still loves Coldplay best of all. “Spies” is still Owen’s song, and “The Scientist” is still Rosalind’s song. My brain is never subtle. Since last we gathered around the old blog, I finished revising The Brightest Fell and sent it off to a patient beta reader. This long suffering friend is […]


We all know what they did to witches

Ah spring, that silly season of award lists, recommended reading lists, and erasure. Time for my annual blog post, for lo, nothing ever changes. Erasure is such an ugly word, with all its connotations of non-existence, of wiping out accomplishments and work and history. At times an ugly word is exactly the right word. Erasure […]
