Rosemary wasn’t particularly fond of jam. She disliked the way the pips clung to her teeth like crows on carrion.

Her short fiction has appeared in Strange Horizons, Cosmos Magazine, and Aurealis, amongst other places. “Trading Rosemary” is her first novella, published earlier this year by Masque Books.
