Who am I?

I’ve been writing in the solarpunk genre since 2004. (To read about how I became a solarpunk writer read here.) At the time there didn’t seem to be much interest in it, but I kept writing anyway because I loved the worlds, and I figured sooner or later there had to be other people who loved it, too.

Being a typical writer I popped my head up out of my writing cave every so often to test the Screen Shot 2015-03-30 at 12.29.13 PMethers. But mostly I wrote. Then in 2006, I won a contest for my first solarpunk novel Timewalkers, about a young adult girl unable to compete in the motorcycle racing circuit, who then travels to a perfect future with cities in the sky (and racing up there, too), a perfect world where all was not as it seems. The win was a great boost, but I realized I had much to learn about the writing craft, so I went back to my cave.

Then in 2011, I finalled in the YA category of the RWA Golden Heart ® with my third solarpunk novel. And in 2013, I self-published my novel Donor on Kobo, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Amazon Author page, and All Romance eBooks.DonorBook1perfectworld8o5x505Donor is about a sixteen-year-old girl who discovers that everything she ever knew about her life is a lie. Donor chronicles Shreya’s journey from an ordinary sixteen-year-old girl living in upstate Louisiana to a fugitive on the run from the law, the unlawful, and those beyond any natural laws known to Humankind. For a peek at the series back cover click blurb.

On April 1st, 2015, Carbon Culture Review will be publishing an interview with me by Alyssa Watson in which I discuss some of the worldbuilding rules  and the definitions I used in my novel Donor. I hope you’ll take the time to stop by and comment.
