Write-a-Thon Team: Rocketship Spatulas

Writer Bio

Besides selling over 30 stories to professional publications, I'm a computer programmer, former defensive end for the Cleveland Fusion women's tackle football team, and an occassional poet.

Writing Style

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

Writing Goal

By the end of this write-a-thon, I will have revised and polished twelve of my previous write-a-thon story drafts. That's two a week!

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:
12 short stories written
