About Laura McCullough

Hobbies and Interests

I enjoy bicycling, walking, snowshoeing, and x-c skiing, depending upon the weather. I also do counted cross-stitch when I have some free time and idle hands. I spend quite a bit of time playing video games, too. Mostly RPGs, some platformers.

I have celiac disease, an intolerance to gluten, so no wheat or regular flour for me! This also means no pizza and beer in most cases.

I have four wonderful cats, Isabelle, Jordan, Nutmeg, and Ashbless, who keep me amused.

I like things celtic. I got married in Edinburgh, Scotland, and really love Scottish clothes, celtic knotwork, tartans, the language, (some of) the food (although haggis isn't all that bad), all sorts of things!

I enjoy spending time with my very cool husband, Kelly McCullough. He writes science fiction and fantasy novels and short stories. His first published novel, WebMage, came out in July 2006 and four other books follow in this series (Cybermancy, CodeSpell, MythOS, and SpellCrash). The last one came out in May 2010. His newest series (the Fallen Blade series) started in December 2011 with Broken Blade. Go, buy! He has been published in Weird Tales (#317 and #332 have short stories, #323 and #329 have a poem, another short story is forthcoming), Tales of the Unanticipated (#21 and #22), and has sold to Reality's Escape. In 2000, he won a place in the most prestigious contest for amateur science fiction and fantasy authors: the L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future Contest. You can buy the anthology (vol. XVII) in most any bookstore!
