For the past 4+ years, my husband, tiny dog and I have been living the lives of vagabonds and bouncing between places as far off as Bulgaria and as familiar as my childhood state of Minnesota. Beginning spring of 2018, I’ll be in Germany full time for at least two years. After that? We’ll see which way the wind is blowing. 

What do I Write?

I became interested in Steampunk starting in 2009 but I haven’t had a chance to be as active in the scene as I’d like to be. I thought having a blog where I could store all of the resources I find and share it with the growing community of steampunk enthusiasts would be a great way to start. In 2017, I became the second editor for SteampunkJournal.org, the world’s most popular Steampunk news site.

My geek girl tendencies don’t stop there. I’ve been known to dabble in a variety of fantasy off-shoots, including contributing “The Vigil” to the Chasing Magic anthology and lending my pen to the collaborative fantasy novel, Esyld’s Awakening. (Coming Winter 2017) I also occasionally dabble in contemporary romance under the pen name M.E. Anders. You can read a short story called “Next Time” as a companion to the Collaborative Writing Challenge’s novel, The MapDuring 2017, I coordinated the CWC’s 7th project with a Steampunk theme called Army of Brass. (Coming Spring 2018)

Find Me Around the Web

This is an interview I did in March 2017 with Radio RetroFuture.

My most recent interview just went live on HorrorTree.com, but you can also read a Steampunk Cavaliers interview about my first experience with Steampunk, an interview by Steampunk/Ancient Roman author Daniel Ottalini, and check out my interview and articles at Steampunk Journal.

  1. PS My “Decay is Beautiful” page will have some artwork that might resonate with your sensibilities. I appreciate your writing and the images/data you share. You’ve prompted me to understand what it is about steampunk that I like. Random words and phrases come to mind: dark, moody, corsets, goggles, Terry Gilliam, steam, distopia without the blood and mayhem…a civilized darkness.
