I have been interested in science fiction since I was a little girl. My first memory was of watching Star Trek when I was 3, and I remember being enthralled with the story, The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet, in 4th grade, then with Star Wars when I was 14, and on and on with various science fiction movies and books. After I read The Foundation Trilogy, I didn't think SF could get any better, so I moseyed over to the mystery aisle and took a long hiatus from reading published SF. Later, I learned about the world of Star Trek RPGs (text-based), and became enmeshed in that. Then I stumbled across Neuromancer (20 years after its publication), and decided to try my hand at writing SF. I applied to the Writing Popular Fiction master's program at Seton Hill University and was accepted. I received my degree in June 2007 with an SF thesis, Cog. It is due to be published in 2013.
I have a published poem, Doomed, that has been nominated for a Rhysling award and was published in the 2009 Science Fiction Poetry Assocation Rhysling Anthology.
I also have an article in the book, MANY GENRES, ONE CRAFT, entitled "Cyberpunk: Remastered or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Postmodernism."
My short story, "The Haunting of M117," was published in Genesis: An Anthology of the Black Science Fiction Society.
My short story, "Choices," was published in Hazard Yet Forward.
Thanks for taking the time to explore and send a shout out regarding my story. The Black Flame Society is intended to be the first in a series of interlocking short stories. Still very insecure about the writing so your message offered a much needed boost.
How did you come across the story?
Regarding your own work: I've never had the opportunity to read an SF poem and look forward to being introduced to what is bound to be an interesting reading experience.
I made it at home with windows movie maker and it took few hours because I kept messing up. I can see where the mistakes and flaws are but it's ok now I know what to do for the next trailer for my next book. Thanks for your comments!
