My Alternative Lifestyle

My turn at the helm, sailing from Guadeloupe to Iles des Saintes

Since January of 2014, I have been living on a sailboat with my family, sailing around the Caribbean.  I homeschool my two sons.  You would think with no day job, no morning commute to an office, and no requirement to wear pants ever, I would have more time to write and thus would have produced …

The Department Of Cautionary Tales

My ideas never seem evil until everybody is screaming and the SWAT team shows up.    It’s rough being a mad scientist.  You make one tiny little mistake, like covering all of Houston in fungus, and they cart you off to a top-secret military prison laboratory.  I’m Juniper Strauss and I’m stuck on the juvenile …

Why I write

So, I don’t know why other people write.  I know we should be watching TV or playing video games like normal people.  For me, it’s a slightly embarrassing compulsive problem that keeps me from going insane and is cheaper than Prozac.  I try to stop, but somehow I don’t.

Zombies!

I made this 8 minute zombie movie for a film class I was taking and posted it on Youtube.  It is pretty funny, though that is mostly due to all the friends I bribed to be in it.  It was aired at SXSW 2013 by the Austin School of Film.

Awww, he called me a space cowgirl.

J.M. McDermott and I did a bit of an email back and forth.  In addition to being a great writer with a very approachable style, he is a fun guy to hang out with in person. Oh, and I will be at Worldcon in Chicago next weekend.  I am on a few panels and doing …

The Second Coming of Bilge Pump Betty

So, I am the proud new owner of a sailboat-shaped thing I have been calling Bilge Pump Betty.  I did not pay money for Betty.  She was a gift from my Dad.  My Dad is a retired engineer who spent his working life at nuclear power plants.  His hobby for the past couple of decades …

Geek Of The Week 08.2012: Dr. Eric Poeschla   Why?
