Many of you already know Nicole Kimberling from her books and more recently, her occasional columns on the site. Today I’m pleased to announce that effective January, 2012 Nicole has agreed, after a few glasses of virtual wine, 🙂 to become an official author contributor, which means that she will be writing a column approximately every two months. I asked her to send me a funny bio to accompany this announcement and she forwarded this one which I don’t think is that funny and shows that she doesn’t follow instructions. 😆
Nicole Kimberling lives in Bellingham, Washington with her partner, Dawn Kimberling and two bad cats. Her novel, Turnskin, won the Lambda Literary Award for Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror. When not writing novels or acting as the editor for Blind Eye Books, she is a professional line cook. Her hobbies include troublemaking, rabble-rousing, and disturbing the staus quo. Also, she can dance to any song, so long as it has a tempo of more than 115 beats per minute.
Please join me in welcoming Nicole although it does seem a little bit late in the day considering she has been contributing essays for several months. 🙂 I know that she will be an even more valuable contributor to the site in the future with her always original takes on what’s going on in the world of publishing and elsewhere and I look forward to her posts. The boyz in the hot tub invited her to join them in their New Year’s Day melee, but if she’s smart she won’t accept because their hands are everywhere. 🙂 Anyway they sent her this virtual glass of champagne to celebrate.
