I was born in America, grew up in East Asia, and now live in England – the homeland of Tolkien, George MacDonald, Milton, CS Lewis, and many others I admire.

I have studied literature and linguistics, and enjoy reading books of many different types. My first and keenest love is for speculative fiction, which includes science fiction and fantasy in their near-infinite variety; in particular, I am drawn to works which blur the lines, moving comfortably between both.
