I'm a writer. I enjoy steampunk, urban fantasy, and dark romantic fantasy. I used to sing lead vocals in a couple bands that I now realize were steampunk before steampunk was cool. We played all kinds of unusual instruments and blended Celtic, Middle Eastern, Rock and often performed with belly dancers. I also belly danced. I sewed a lot of costumes over the years that might have been steampunk. These days I mainly write and hope my daughter follows in my artsy footsteps. I like to think that steampunk has a connection to most everything I love - music, dance, writing, costuming, travel, hanging out at conventions & ren faires. I also find information security and igneous petrology wildly sexy - I'm sure there's a little steampunk in there somewhere.
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
Meet and learn from others who enjoy the Steampunk vibe.
I'm in because I drew blueprints for a water ship / aerial / spacecraft, It runs on steam, and utilizes a mechanical energy storage and generation device.Within the vessel is a garden, for entirely self-contained food.The one aspect I haven't entirely worked out is H2O generation, i.e. fuel, or perpetual fuel.The ship also has a gamer's deck, in the event things get dull, or the moment strikes.Happy Sailing,SJSee More
