She has short stories in Fault Zone: Reverse, Dragon Gems, and The Truck Stop at the Center of the Galaxy. Her first-contact sci-fi book, All That Was Asked, has a sequel, Shadows of Insurrection, arriving in November 2022. Her latest contribution to the Truck Stop series is a middle-grade aliens-on-the-station adventure novel, The Smugglers.

As an engineer, she has analyzed electric power systems, studied climate-safe technology, and written extensively on energy issues. She also likes to make strange little robots out of LEGO and various odds and ends. When not arguing with her cats about treats, she works on new stories, her email journal Messages from the Oort Cloud, and her website, Cometary Tales.
