I’m a writer and editor in Austin, Texas. My novel The Unexpected Miss Bennet came out in 2011 from Robert Hale in the UK and from Penguin Berkley in the US. It takes up where Pride & Prejudice leaves off, specifically regarding Mary Bennet, the most misunderstood of the Bennet sisters. My first novel, Gordath Wood, came out from Ace Fantasy in the summer of 2008, and the sequel, Red Gold Bridge, in 2009. The Crow God's Girl is a standalone continuation of the Gordath Wood Series.
