Well, it's come to this. I've avoided social networking sites for quite a long time. I do have a blog and maintain my website, email with friends and occasionally post on certain message boards, but I try to avoid anything that takes me away from writing for too very long. I'm good enough at wasting time without any assistance.
However, Crimespace is cool and much like a magpie is attracted to shiny objects, I'm easily attracted to cool things. So here I be. What's my story? The Reader's Digest version: I live in Atlanta with one husband and one cat. I'm a multi-published author who has won a few awards. I like to write (and read) complex mysteries. I self-published my first three novels without bothering to submit them to NY. I wanted to learn a bit about the industry. Boy did I.
The next two novels (part of the Time Rovers Series) have been published through Dragon Moon Press (Calgary, AB). Dragon Moon used to be a small press, but after they became an imprint of Hades Publications, they're more a "medium press" (like the dryer setting). They're now the largest science fiction and fantasy publishing house in Canada. Though DMP is into speculative fiction, they love a good genre-blended mystery and that's where I come in.
My latest book (VIRTUAL EVIL (Time Rovers - Book 2) just launched on the 15th of October and the initial reviews have been dynamite (in a good way). I'm currently slaving away on Book #3 due March 1st.
So that's me in a few paragraphs. Oh, and I love single malt scotch, which is one of the reasons I'm going to fly to Chicago in the middle of the winter to attend Love is Murder. (They're having a single malt tasting!)
