I am an Aussie Lass who has recently moved to the United States, and loves writing sf, fantasy, horror, humour and even dabbles in steampunk every now and then. Since my first sale to Clarkesworld, I've made over 25 story sales to professional markets around the world, including Asimov’s and Analog. In 2009 I was a finalist for the AUREALIS AWARD (Aussie) for Best SF Story, and finalist for the 2010 IGNOTUS AWARD (Spanish) for Best Foreign Short Story, as well as a 2010 CAMPBELL AWARD NOMINEE for best new writer. In 2011 I won the Best Foreign Translation ICTINEUS AWARD (Catalan) for "Soulmates", a novelette written with Mike Resnick, and first published in Asimov's Magazine. My first short story collection will be published by TICONDEROGA PRESS in 2014, and I will also be releasing an ARC MANOR Stellar Guild Series book wih the most awarded short story writer of all time, Mike Resnick, in the same year.
