I'm Abby, I've completed six SF/F novels, and my perfectionism is locked in a constant state of war with my ridiculously huge ambition.

My short fiction and articles have shown up in:
+ Escape Pod
+ Fantasy Magazine
+ Fantastic Stories of the Imagination
+ Futuristica vol II and other anthologies

I'm an alumni or member of:
+ Odyssey Writing Workshop
+ Superstars Seminar
+ Codex Writers Online

If you like one of my stories, please hit the star icon. And I'm fine with critical feedback. Say whatever you want. I might respond if it's juicy enough!

My biggest influences: Robert Jordan, Scott Sigler, George R.R. Martin, Hugh Howey, Stephen King.
Respect also to: Brandon Sanderson, J.K. Rowling, Michael Crichton, Lois McMaster Bujold, Orson Scott Card, Ransom Riggs, Scott Westerfeld, Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child.
Also, I'm told that my work is evocative of: Iain Banks, C.S. Friedman, Frank Herbert, and Isaac Asimov (as well as some of my faves listed above).
