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!

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
