A Mile High City. There’s Aether Up There, Right?

AnomalyCon 2016Denver’s best Alternate History, Science Fiction, and Steampunk convention!
March 25th-27th 2016

Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center
Denver, Colorado

Excitement! In March, I’ll be attending my first-ever con as a guest author. No, I’m not nervous, why do you ask? *casually snaps pencil in half without noticing*.

I’ll be participating in six panels alongside lots of wonderful authors, including some of my own personal favorites. I’ll be trying very hard not to go all fangirl on them. I’ll also be judging a costume contest and co-hosting the Grand Tea. During my free time, I’ll be at the author’s tables, with my books for sale. Stop by and I’ll sign one for you to take home.

And, in what I hope will be lots of fun for everyone, I’ve been given an hour of my very own to discuss and hopefully get everyone excited about the Mad Science of Victorian Cooking.  It’s fairly well known in my social circles that I’m a foodie. I’m also a little bit crazy and experimental. And, of course, I’m fascinated by the Victorian era. Put those all together, and really, what could possibly go wrong? Come join in and let’s all see what happens!
