My first novel, Superpowers, came out in 2008 from Three Rivers Press and Vintage UK Originals. It was recently nominated for the Nebula Award for Best Novel.

Add me if you feel like it; you're also welcome to lurk, if that's what you're comfortable with. I usually friend back, but the list is starting to get pretty long, so that may not continue indefinitely.

Secret City excerpts.

I'm also on MySpace, and have a website. Here's a link to my photos on Flickr. For older content, check out my old Blogger blog here.
