Welcome to the website for Barbara ML Gordon.
I'm a mostly unpublished writer of fantasy, with forays into mystery and sf.
My first published short story, The King of Elfland's Stepdaughter, can be read at Coyote Wild. Three Coyote Wild stories received honourable mentions in The Year's Best Science Fiction for 2007:
The Ladies, by Elizabeth Bear
Marsdog, by Beth Bernobich
The King of Elfland's Stepdaughter, by Barbara Gordon
I've finished the final draft of The Willow Knot, a retelling of Grimm tale 11, and have found an agent.
I am finishing up the first draft of The Cost of Silver, a dark fantasy set in Stuart England.
In 2006 I attended the Viable Paradise writers' workshop. If you want to write sf or fantasy, there's nothing better.
For workshops that don't require travel or taking time off, try the Online Writing Workshop, Critters, or Absolute Write.
