About me

My historical fantasy novel Armed in Her Fashion was published in May 2018 from ChiZine Publications and I have two interactive novels out from Choice of Games: The Road to Canterbury (April 2018) and The Magician’s Workshop (December 2019). In November 2018, my time-travel novella Alice Payne Arrives was released from Tor.com Publishing, followed by the sequel, Alice Payne Rides, in March 2019. I’m now working on a historical fantasy novel called The Embroidered Book, scheduled for publication in 2021.

Armed in Her Fashion won the Aurora Award for Best Novel, was a finalist for the Crawford Award and the Locus First Novel Award, and was shortlisted for the Sunburst Award. Alice Payne Arrives was a finalist for the Aurora and Nebula Awards. The Road to Canterbury was a Nebula finalist in the game category.
