As a writer, her work ranges from the Nebula award-nominated Vineart War epic fantasy trilogy to the SFnal/horror collection DRAGON VIRUS, as well as the popular “Cosa Nostradamus” urban fantasy series. Her short fiction has appeared in print and digital magazines, and more than twenty anthologies, including the forthcoming DEAD MAN’S HAND, and the novellas MILES TO GO/PROMISES TO KEEP.
