I help companies raise debt financing and write reports about it.
Tell us about the event or Meetup you host.
The Manhattan wing of Brooklyn Speculative Fiction Writers group for short stories and flash fiction on the second Friday of every month. Stories and drinks. Lots of drinks.
How did you get involved with BSFW and which events do you attend?
I met Rob Cameron at a Tor party and he invited me to join BSFW with a big, warm hug. I am glad I joined.
What have you found most helpful about this writing group?
Getting different perspectives on my stories has improved my writing. Critiquing everyone's stories has helped me think hard about my own stories and style.
What stories have most influenced your writing style?
There are many and I add a few more every year. These are the authors I added this year- Mariana Enriquez, Daphne DuMaurier, Nnedi Okorafor, Laura Vanderberg. Jeff VanderMeere and Kevin Brockmeier are all-time favorites.
How do you find time to write?
Late into the night works best after my son is asleep.
What are you working on now?
A short story about house hold help in Kolkata and a domestic horror novel
If you could submit a story to your dream anthology what would it be about and who else would be in it?
It would be an anthology of fantasy-horror stories with a very nuanced portrayal of women protagonists. Vandana Singh, Nnedi Okorafor, Elizabeth Hand, Charliie Jane Anders, Ken Liu
