My Bio
I've been working professionally in costumes for a while, so that's my primary outlet, but I've also had experience as a performer/singer, puppeteer, and am currently working on my writing. I tend to have a quirky, calvin and hobbes style sense of humor and am typically boundless in my curiosity. I love seeing things in new ways and meshing up the unmeshable. I love stories - creating stories fuels every other apsect of my creative life, no matter the art form. Generally music, fantasy, and weirdness tend to play a part of my everyday life.

My first ebook release Mooner is available today! Blurb: Like many young men at the end of the 1800s Bill has signed on to work in a logging camp to earn a fast paycheck to start his life. Unfortunately his role model is Big John, the camp's golden boy known for blowing his pay as fast as he makes it. On a cold Saturday night they enter Red's Saloon to forget the work that takes the sweat and the lives of so many. Red may have plans for their whiskey money, but something else lurks in the shadows, something that badly wants a drink that has nothing to do with alcohol. Can Bill make it back out the shabby door or does someone have their own

Hi everyone! Well, along with all my writing and creating I've accepted another adventure...I'm now writing a twice-monthly column for Fandom Fests's blog Fandom Scene! In it I'll be exploring women and genre fiction and movies - how female characters are perceived, what their place is, etc. It's a topic I'm passionate about so I'm very excited to have this opportunity! You can catch that at www.fandomfest.com/blogs/selah-janel and be sure to check out all of the other amazing writers and their blogs, too!

I know, I know, I've been nonexistant here. But I've been doing so much and having a blast doing it! The show I did with MadCap Puppets went very well. Once my initial nerves pass I love being plunged into a performance situation and the long run meant that we really had time to learn how everyone worked and play with different stuff. Good times! I'm also working with a friend to get my costume and design stuff online, so hopefully that will be coming soon, too. And the writing! I've been proofing edits, looking at covers, starting to put myself out there and promote, and of course writing and submitting more stuff. It's terrifying but exc
