Author has written 15 stories for Romance, Love, Life, General, and Friendship.
Delays from all ends (rather longer than anticipated lead times from the companies I'm dealing with) mean that, as you may have figured out, September is no longer a reality. "Out of Bounds" should be going to print (all fingers crossed) in December. When more exact dates can be confirmed I will do so. In the mean time, Kite Hill has a short story by Suvi Mahonen in the works - look out for links in the next week or so!
'Out of Bounds' will shortly be available to buy in paperback as one of the first titles from Kite Hill Publishing (link in homepage, above)!
The company was born of the desire to produce quality books, which are well written, edited and formatted, despite containing GLBT characters. The idea is to prove that fiction like this could and does have a more general following than people who are solely interested in erotica.

Just to avoid confusion and to make sure no one feels I'm being wilfully deceptive - Kite Hill Publishing is my own business. I'm passionate about publishing quality fiction. To allay any worries: this is not a vehicle for my ego - future catalogues will not be dominated by my work. That's unethical and not what I'm out to do. It's just a little tricky to start up a publishing company without a book to print!

In terms of writing, my update schedule is a little slow at the moment. Rest assured, my head explodes if I stop writing. Nothing is abandoned; I'm far too stubborn for that.
I've also set up a livejournal as zebbiemartin (all one word), so if you're interested, check it out!
Comments, criticism etc eternally appreciated. Be as harsh as you like - it's better for me.
I've been busier than you may think I have been.
I've been writing pinker, fluffier stuff as frenchmartini, because I'm odd enough that the mental separation helps with production (...she says after grinding to a stunning halt on everything).
So if you're looking for a read with a little less...
...depression, angst, real life drag-down? you might find something to suit your tastes there.
Cold Turkey won Best (incomplete) Slash at SkoW, round seven, along with Judge's Pick for the category, so thank you very much everybody who voted. I'm still quite stunned! It also won an award for Best Chemistry (Thom and Evan) with Sweet Revolution Awards. Thank you so much.
Lifelike won a Best Supporting Character Award with Ewan, through Sweet Revolution - again, thank you!

For general information - my avatar image is by a cartoonist called Dan Shive, who writes a pretty damn awesome webcomic called El Goonish Shive, featuring a squirrel girl, magic stuff, aliens, a sex-change gun and lots of gender bending (what more could you want?) -
And I'm giving a friend of mine a PLUG because he needs some encouragement! Go read about his (dismally slash-free, but amusing) circumnavigation of a crush. And then review him lots. Thanking you!!
