This is where I'm supposed to talk about myself in the third person. Jill did this. Jill won that. BORING. All you need to know about me is that I wrote the kind of novel I wanted to read: a political thriller that evokes Casablanca + Romancing the Stone + Oceans Eleven + Sherlock Holmes, with a dash of science fiction & steampunk. What genre is it? It's many. It's none of the above. I imagined an interesting character and set her loose. Her world still doesn't realize who they're dealing with, but they're finding out.
