I am a writer, mother, and geek–not necessarily in that order–living just outside of Austin, TX. I write short fiction to maintain my sanity while working on novel length manuscripts, with debatable results. My boys keep me busy, whether I’m refereeing a wrestling match or acting as a human jungle gym. When I’m not buried at the bottom of an endless pile of laundry, I might be found doing something crafty or poking around halfheartedly in the garden. Or possibly debating the relative merits of Batman and Superman with my husband.

Oh yeah, I went there.

On Writing…
The main rule of writing is that if you do it with enough assurance and confidence, you're allowed to do whatever you like. (That may be a rule for life as well as for writing. But it's definitely true for writing.) So write your story as it needs to be written. Write it ­honestly, and tell it as best you can. I'm not sure that there are any other rules. Not ones that matter.~Neil Gaiman
