Frances Silversmith writes computer software for a living and science fiction and fantasy stories for fun. She lives in a small town in Germany with her husband, a gaggle of guinea pigs, and two Icelandic horses.
Frances has published a number of short stories in various online and pint magazines, and is currently working on her first novel.
In her none-too copious free time, Frances likes to plant and harvest medicinal herbs and brew up herbal potions and salves. At irregurlar intervals, she blogs about herbal remedies in fiction and real life.
