Ferret Facts

The Ferret Origin Story

About the Ferrets (in normal posting order):

Rebekah Loper

IMG_5791Rebekah began creating fictional worlds as a child – it was practically a family hobby. Eventually, she realized she could pull on the guise of ‘fantasy writer’ and continue worldbuilding as a responsible adult.

When she’s not writing, Rebekah tends to her husband, chickens, cat, and dog. Her dream is to be as self-sufficient as possible on her not-quite-a-quarter acre lot, while somehow still finding time to feed her anime and manga addiction.

Her fantasy novel, Catalyst, written for the 2012 round of National Novel Writing Month, took first place in the Oklahoma Writers’ Federation, Inc. 2013 annual contest for unpublished science fiction/fantasy/horror novels.

She is also a Municipal Liaison (regional chapter head) for National Novel Writing Month, which spawns from her masochistic streak. It’s not enough to just write 50,000 words in November.

Rebekah blogs at Fantasia Hearth, is on Facebook and Instagram, and can also be found at Fantasy-Faction where she writes about worldbuilding and writing and reviews various things.

Michelle Pierce
Ferret Michelle claps gleefully upon realizing she will get to smash coins on a train track.

This is pretty much me in a nutshell.

By day, I’m a web developer. I primarily speak CSS and HTML, but I’m learning PHP and JavaScript. Code fascinates me. I would say it’s unhealthy, but because I get paid for it, I imagine it’s very healthy, actually.

 (This also means I spend a lot of my spare time looking at websites going, “WHY DID YOU DO THAT?”)

 By night, I write, usually fantasy. My degree is actually in professional writing, and as such, I’m something of a structure fiend. I love breaking a story down into its building blocks and seeing how it all comes together.

 I also review movies and books over at my blog, The Barenaked Critic. The name comes from a column I wrote in college for a website called Hollywood Elsewhere, which I kept going for the better part of three years.

Lissa Clouser

IMG_0199I am the anti-writer and rebel of the group…

First of all, I’m the poet and only occasionally will you find me writing anything else. Secondly, I don’t own a cat. (I’m actually allergic to them!) Thirdly, I can’t write in coffee shops… I people watch or daydream. And finally, I don’t drink coffee, I touch tea only a few times a year, and alcohol not much more than that. *looks around nervously* Are we sure I signed up for the right job?

You can find me at my blog (Lissa Clouser – Poet) where I talk about writing, life, and anything else that catches my fascination! You can also find me on Facebook.

Eris O’Reilly
This is my face. I am quite pale.

Hello happy bloggers! I am the resident blonde of the group, Eris O’Reilly. I love cookies and sunny days and piña coladas masquerading as milkshakes. Also, vodka. Mm, I love me some vodka.

A lot of my writing is humorous in nature, because I can’t take anything seriously. Ever. And neither should you. I am a firm believer that most of the world’s problems are because people take themselves too damn seriously. Lighten up, you folks in the back, I’m talking to you.

I also love to curse. As profane and colorfully as I can manage. Think Quentin Tarantino, but with more f-bombs and less unrealistically looking blood spills.

I also like cats.

You can find me here (www.erisoreilly.com) where I blog about my upcoming projects; reviews of books, movies, fanfiction, and video games; rant about the many, many things that make me go “SQUEE!”; and any other random thing that crosses my brain space.

Serena Saint-Marceaux

Perching SerenaHallo! I’m Serena, and I will try to impart a little of the spirit of having a conversation with me here. Hang on. Things may get crazy. (They usually do with me.)

Through mysterious circumstances in 2010, I was dubbed the Queen of Creative Deaths, a crown which I adore, delight in, and do my best to live up to – of course, I believe all of my bloodline comes through people who painted themselves and went screaming half-naked into battle, so perhaps that isn’t too odd.

I communicate with any animals in the vicinity – and sometimes people – by way of growls and other borrowed sounds as well as words, which I seem to be better at picking up and using as understandable communication than any of the languages I sometimes try to learn.

I love languages! Also etymology, even in English, where, let’s be honest, it often makes about as much sense as a cat playing a banjo while riding a sea turtle.

As may be obvious, I gleefully collect random information – and I love to share.

I can be found at my blog, The Font of Randomness, and on Twitter and Instagram.

Jessica Fontaine Jones

Jess is a Founding Ferret, who isn’t able to post as often as the rest of us.

Jessica JonesJess is learning to become a human. This is difficult. She prays for wisdom a lot. In the meantime, she writes about strange things like aliens, flying plants, dinosaurs, blindness, and amazing kids at kidssurvival.com.
