Going Back to Oberon (an Oberon short story)

This story started out as a feature on Cabin Goddess’s “Fourth Wall Friday”, a blog feature in which authors were invited to put themselves into a scene where they interacted with their characters. 

I had a great deal of fun imagining myself returning to the scene of my very first series. It started me thinking about all the stories I hadn't told yet. And it really motivated me to start getting some of those ideas out there.

This Winter Night (a prequel to This Winter Heart)

Newlyweds Dario and Ophelia Leonides are passionately in love. The only things marring their happiness are Lia's homesickness and continued inability to conceive a child.

Being Mom: A Collection of Poems About Motherhood

All of these poems (with the exception of the last one, Birthright, which was written several years earlier) were written between 1997 and 1999 when I was living in Berkeley and...being a mom.

A year later, I would begin writing novels on a more-or-less full-time basis. The family has yet to recover.
