Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve known that I was a geek. Spaceships? Yes please. Unicorns? Oh yeah. Laser guns? Bring it. But a geek girl has to make a living, and I chose writing and editing geeky things.
This includes writing articles for Battlestar Galactica magazine, SFX, Strange Horizons, IGN.com, PC Gamer, Gameshark, MMO Games, The New York Review of Science Fiction, and Lightspeed. Non-geeky writing includes The New York Times and Time Out New York.
Then there’s the editing. I’ve edited books, magazines, and websites in just about every industry–but especially within the publishing, space science, and medical/pharmaceutical industries. I’m a huge fan of the Chicago Manual of Style and the American Medical Association Manual of Style.
Career highlights include performing stand-up comedy, helping a friend write her wedding vows, writing two live-action roleplaying games, receiving three poetry award nominations, having several of my photographs used as book and album covers, and appearing as a judge in an episode of the Food Network Challenge.
Currently, I’m a blogger for Blastr (the website of the SyFy Channel) and the humor competition editor for The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. I also freelance write for Intuit Quickbase.
I live in New York City with my husband and our books.
