Birthdate:Jun 21
Location:CHICAGO, Illinois, United States of America
I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, lived briefly in Austin, Texas, y'all, and moved with my husband to Madrid, Spain, in December 1999. We moved back to the United States, to Chicago, in July 2016.

I've worked for more than forty years as a journalist, both as a reporter and editor. I also write poetry, essays, and fiction, especially science fiction, and Tor is threatening to publish my novel Semiosis in January 2018.

I hold a master-level Diploma in Translation from the Chartered Institute of Linguists, and I've translated a variety of works from Spanish into English.

You can find out more at my professional writing website:

I'm also translating the medieval fantasy novel Amadis of Gaul a chapter at a time at

Why Mount Oregano?"The mountain isn't all oregano," as they say in Spain: No todo el monte es orégano. It means that nothing is always easy going. Everything has prickly and stinky patches. You might find some here.
