I’m a writer of speculative fiction. I dip toes in several tributaries of the genre, from literary spec to epic fantasy to sci-fi to no spec (rarely, but it happens).

Writing has always been in the background of all my adventures. I wrote my first story in second grade and finished my first book at the age of twelve.

A lot has happened since. Moving countries (eight times), getting married (to a very supportive man), completing my Ph.D. (in molecular biology), and having my three amazing kids (yeah, they’re a lovely handful) were the biggest plot twists.

I’m now settled in the beautiful Black Forest region of southern Germany, where dark, mossy gorges and a breath-taking view of the Swiss Alps provide for plenty of inspiration.

I’m an associate member of SFWA and a Codexian.
