Penny FreemanGenre: historical fiction, fantasy, Steampunk, science fiction
As a child, Penny Freeman developed the habit of lulling herself to sleep by dreaming up continuations of her favorite books too soon ended. She never left off the habit, and eventually gained confidence in worlds of her own creation. She first cracked open a spiral binder in high school, and has spent the past decade dutifully penning her prerequisite one million words of bad writing before getting to the good stuff. Now author, editor, journalist, and story coach, Penny currently lives with her husband in a quasi-reality filled with fantasy, sci-fi, historical fiction, Regency romance, the classics, and history books, suspended between the piney woods and sprawling metropolis of southeast Texas. She plans on exploring the world when she grows up.
Her fantasy/Steampunk nom de plume is an omage to both her father, Glen Tarbet, and step-father, Leslie Neves, the two most loving and self-sacrificing men she has ever known.
