The first convention of 2014 was Boskone. I had panel space for the first time after beating around the bush for a few years. Boskone to me is like a winter retreat to do nothing but stay inside with a nice hot toddy, looking outside at the bitter cold of Boston Harbor with sadness that eventually you will have to venture outside again come Sunday evening. Regardless of the disdain towards the weather, I'm excited for Boksone 52 come February!

A huge event this year was IlluXcon. It was my second year behind a table in the ballroom Showcase on Friday and Saturday night. Two pieces found happy homes this year, "Avian" and "Moonlit Assassin". I could not be happier with their new owners, I know they will take good care of my babies!

2014 was also the year of my first major accolade as I had the honor of being featured on the cover of Nightmare Magazine, a publication which I hold a deep respect for. Thanks to Galen Dara--love you!--I was put in contact with Lightspeed and was the cover artist for their Nightmare Magazine Halloween issue, exclusive to women artists and women writers! It truly is an honor to have taken part in such a project, and I cannot wait to work with them again!
