Her steampunk Clockwork Republic series includes the novels Mirrors & Magic and Bitter Cold, retellings of "Snow White" and "The Snow Queen." A novella series, "The Belle Starr Chronicles," is old-fashioned space opera featuring a mentally-unhinged smuggler and her sentient ship.

They live in a Grey Cottage with two creative, funny opinionated kids and a Siamese cat who thinks she's a ninja.
