Moderation in everything - including moderation.
I'm a fusion of geek and gamer, Mum, writer, editor, retail and digital marketeer, righteous ol' lady, battling babe, bad girl and outbound-bound fitness freak.
I went to an all-boys' school, studied English and Film at Uni, then joined a Viking re-enactment group and spent my twenties fighting, writing and drinking too much beer. At thirty, I grew up and swapped 'warrior maiden' for a sensible job and a mortgage... at forty, I'm determined to be a child again (though the mortgage still neds paying).
I spend my time with my six-year-old son and my demented tortie cat, as well as running PR and events for cult retailer Forbidden Planet and writing fantasy novels for the new SF/F profile of Titan Books.
