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.
