Lani Longshore is a charter member of Tri-Valley Writers, currently serving as Vice President (2012-2013). She has published cookbook reviews in The Valley Times, and has written and performed original musical comedy with Ann Anastasio as Broken Dishes Repertory Theatre. They invented a new literary genre – quilting science fiction. Their novel, Death by Chenille, has been released as an e-book on Smashwords.com.
The story of quilters saving the world from space aliens draws on Lani’s background as a quilt artist and science fiction fan, and on her experience as a third degree black belt in karate. Lani also writes a weekly blog about creating art in a messy studio.
