My Website is <http://home.earthlink.net/~nancyjane>.
I update it from time to time.
Right now I have three stories in print in three different anthologies:
* "Walking Contradiction" in Imaginings, edited by Keith R.A. DeCandido, published by Pocket and available in most bookstores and online booksellers.
* "Nohow Permanent" in Imagination Fully Dilated: The Literated Artwork of Alan M. Clark, edited by Robert Kruger and Patrick Swenson, and available in hardcover or trade paper from Fairwood Press <http://www.fairwoodpress.com> and in ebook from Electric Story <http://www.electricstory.com>.
* "A Jealous God" in Mota 3: Courage, edited by Karen Joy Fowler, and available from TripleTree Publishing <http://www.tripletreepub.com>.
I seem to publish most of my fiction in anthologies, but I've also had stories in Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet and Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine -- two very different stories in two very different magazines (both of which have infinitely cool names). I suspect I'm the only person around who's ever published fiction in the National Law Journal (I won their one and only fiction contest). And you can read my fiction online for free on Fantastic Metropolis <http://www.fantasticmetropolis.com> and in the Ideomancer archives <www.ideomancer.com>. (I've also opined on Fantastic Metropolis, so if you want to know what books made an impression on me last year, you can find out there.)
I went to Clarion West in 1997 and to the Milford workshop in 2002 -- both of which I highly recommend. In my day job, I edit a publication on class action law. On occasion, I do reviews for Tangent Online <http://www.tangentonline.com>.
I live in Washington, D.C. Yes, I mean I actually live in the city, and yes, we should have a voting member of Congress and a couple of senators just like the rest of the people in the US.
I have a cat. I train in Aikido. I'm a recovering lawyer. That's probably all you really need to know.

It's been a good past year for you. So what are you working on now, Nance?

Well, I just finished a novel, and now I'm looking for an agent and/or a publisher (all suggestions appreciated). It's a classic tale in which people in charge refuse to listen to the subordinate who understands the situation, to their downfall. However, despite the thematic resemblance to current events, it is science fiction, complete with aliens. And, of course, it has moral dilemmas and fight scenes.
I've also got some short stories circulating around looking for a home and a stack of stories I want to write now that I've declared the novel finished. In fact, I plan to get to at least one of them this weekend when I should be doing my taxes.
And thank you for asking!

Wiscon is coming up. I'll be there. Despite all resolutions to the contrary, I have overcommitted myself, so I won't be hard to find.
I will be reading Tarot at the Gathering on Friday afternoon, so come get your future told.
There will be a Broad Universe party on Sunday in Room 611 in honor of short fiction writers and poets. Come by and say hi, and see the broad (yes, that's on purpose) range of Broad Universe writers. We will have food and drink.
And if you're the type of person who goes to readings, come to the Broad Universe rapid fire reading on Friday night (8:45) and/or to hear me, Robert Freeman Wexler, Jennifer Stevenson and Therese Pieczynski on Sunday AM at 10.
Absurdly enough, I'm on panels, too. Right now I don't even remember which or when, but I'll look it up before I get there. I gotta start pacing myself at Wiscon. Just too many fun things to do there.

My story "Walking Contradiction" made the Gaylactic Spectrum Award short list for short fiction. That's not as cool as winning, but it's still pretty damn cool.
I seem to be in pretty good company. Barth Anderson of the Ratbastards (of this discussion board and other places) won the short fiction division, and the short list includes some very nifty folks like Nisi Shawl and Alyx Dellamonica. Plenty of very fine folks among the novel winners and short listers, too.
Check it all out here (makes a good reading list):

Congratulations, Nancy. And to all the other short listees and winners. Thanks for the URL.
