Write-a-Thon Team: Rocketship Spatula

Writer Bio

Besides selling over 50 stories to professional publications, I'm a computer programmer, former defensive end for the Cleveland Fusion women's tackle football team, and an occasional poet.

Writing Style

I tend toward gentle humor and classic sci-fi themes. Others might say I tend toward sarcasm and robots.

Writing Goal

I will write 100,000 words on a variety of projects. I have some short stories I want to finish and an unfinished novel to work on, and maybe I'll start something new.

Fundraising Goal

Rather than give away a sweater this year, I thought I'd spread the joy more thickly. At least three lucky donors will win a hand-knit shawl by me! I've already made three in the pattern of the one I'm wearing in my profile photo, and I'm working on a fourth.

writing goal:
100000 words written
