I am pretty busy at the moment with grad school, and don’t really have the time to pursue full-fledged writing projects outside of my assignments, but when Pat Bertram, author of LightBringer, approached me with the idea of doing a collaborative novel I just couldn’t say no! I’ve known Pat for a few years, and we have “blurbed” each other’s books, but we have never worked together on a project.  There are other writers involved as well, eight of us all together, and the novel will be truly international in scope, with four countries represented.  We have decided to try something in the Steampunk genre.  I am a big fan of Girl Genius, the steampunk interent comic starring Agatha Heterodyne, but I have never written anything like that myself.  Should be fun!
