About Myth & Moor

About me

I'm a writer, editor, painter, folklorist, and life-long wanderer of mythic woods. Born on the east coast of America, I studied literature and folklore at university in Ohio, worked as a fiction editor (specializing in fantasy) in the New York publishing industry, created a Mythic Arts organization in Boston, co-founded an Arts Retreat in the Arizona desert, and now live with my English husband in a small Devon village full of artists. We have one grown daughter, a much-loved dog, and a tiny house on the edge of Dartmoor.

I've written and edited many books, plus essays and articles on myth, folklore, and fantasy literature, and received nine World Fantasy Awards for this work, as well as the Mythopoeic Award, the Bram Stoker Award, and the SFWA Solstice Award for Lifetime Achievement; I've also been short-listed twice for the Shirley Jackson Award and once for the Tiptree. If you'd like to know more, please see the Author Biography on my Books website.

My literary agent is Christopher Schelling at Selectic Artists in New York. Contact information is here.

There is no "tip jar" for Myth & Moor -- it is a nonprofit endeavor offered in the spirit of gift exchange for all who create, study, and love Mythic Arts. If you'd like to support my other writing and art projects, however, please visit my Patreon page.

Sketch for In the Word Wood by David WyattThe drawing above of me and Tilly (as a pup) is by our friend and neighbor David Wyatt: the rough sketch for his painting "In the Word Wood," which is part of his wonderful "Mythic Village" series. Tilly and I often begin our day in the woods behind my studio in just this fashion.
