About


headshot-small

I grew up in Stoneboro, PA.  I currently live in Pittsburgh with my wonderful and talented husband, Paul Stefko, and our cat, Zuko.

I write science fiction, fantasy, and horror short stories, novellas, and novels.  I’m a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.  I read submissions for Clarkesworld Magazine from 2008 through 2013.  I worked as an assistant editor for the Triangulation Annual Anthology Series from 2008-2010, and I was one of the magazine’s two coeditors in 2011. I was also an assistant editor at Electric Velocipede from 2012-2013, and I edited both Triangulation: Lost Voices and Triangulation: Beneath the Surface.

I enjoy science fiction and fantasy in all of their forms.  I love books, movies, and TV shows.  I like stories and characters.

I’m getting a little serious about hiking.  I’ve hiked the Inca Trail and completed the Rachel Carson Challenge.  I also really love animation, especially anime and Disney/Pixar movies.  I play tabletop and Xbox rpgs.  I play too many different tabletop games to list, though I’m partial to 3.5 D&D and GURPS.  And Star Wars Saga Edition. We go to Gen Con every year.

I also enjoy musicals, crocheting, cooking, traveling, and nature documentaries.
