Somehow, January's over, so I thought I'd do a quick update on how my New Year's Resolution for 2023 is going. (I included a creative list of ways to promote yourself in there that I thought I might be able to follow—more on this in my self-interview below!) Q: Have you promoted yourself in some … Continue reading Quick Reflection: Self-Promotion in January 2023
Happy New Year, everyone!

One of the perks of being an SFPA member is voting in the Rhysling Awards for best short and long poems of the previous year! … Continue reading My votes for Rhysling Award (2022)
When I turned 18, I made a bucket list. Why? 18-year-old Past Me assumed that 82-year-old Future Me would find herself on her deathbed, lamenting that she never did anything with her life.
