Io. I like words. I've been writing for a long time, mostly fairy tale retellings. My first book was published last month: a short story collection called Beast, available here. Real life has finally begun to catch up with me, so this might be a slow year. My goal is to write the first of thirteen books telling L. Frank Baum's Oz story from the perspective of Princess Ozma, exploring themes of gender, sexuality, identity, and the abuse of power. Should be fun.
