I prefer to work near brick walls with dogs by my feet and cats on my desk. The superhero fiction duology I self-published in 2012 was acquired by Booktrope under the title Highly Capable in 2015. My short story “Journey to a New Home” was featured in the anthology, Magic Unveiled. The feminist essay collection, My Body My Words featured my piece “The Scars That Make Me” I have a steady rotation of short stories under consideration. I have fiction like "Losing Friends" under the name J. Dawson and I also co-write Witcher-like fantasy such as "A Curse of Rookians" with my critique partner under the tag Octavia Stone. I am currently splitting mytime between restoring a hundred-year-old New England house and writing my next novels.
