Write-a-Thon Team: Team Rocketship Spatula

Writer Bio

A 2013 Clarion graduate, I have sold stories to Asimov’s and Analog and my short story “Keep Talking” won Apex Magazine’s Story of the Year for 2014.

Writing Style

I tend toward gentle humor and classic sci-fi themes. Others might say I tend toward sarcasm and robots.

Writing Goal

I will write 50 short stories over the course of the marathon. Updates on stories as written here:

Fundraising Goal

I don’t HAVE to be in the top five every year, but gosh it feels good. ONE lucky donor of $20 or more will be entered in a sweepstakes to win a beautiful, hand-knit to order sweater by ME. Because I knit sweaters.

writing goal:
50 short stories written
