Writer of ethically ambiguous SF and fantasy for kids and teens …



Ladys_Pursuit_Cover_rgb_lgI’ve read silly ballads about noble heirs who assumed a disguise to travel among their people unnoticed. And there have been a handful of battlefield commanders who shed their badges of rank, and visited the troops’ campfires on the night before a battle. The stories claimed they were seeing to their troops well-being, but I rather thought they were making sure their men were ready to fight in the morning — which in turn made sure they wouldn’t find themselves and their officers alone on the field, with a bunch of people carrying sharp and pointy things marching toward them.
