Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Costume Shenanigans in the Northwest!

The Northwest's oldest SFF convention by fans for fans. I'll be teaching a couple of writing/editing workshops, as well as sitting on several panels. I'll also be reading from my upcoming novel, and autographing stuff, hanging out, and being weird, so come and see me!


UPDATE: I have had to cancel and won't be attending Norwescon this year. Really sorry for the last-minute change. Hope to see you all next year!
