R.A. MacAvoy published her first novel in 1983. All others she has published since then can be found online, along with awards she has won or for which she was nominated.
She studied various martial arts, starting at the age of eleven, but is no longer any sort of lethal weapon.
She has raised and educated ponies and horses and been educated by them.
She dived the waters of the Pacific Ocean, which was an experience as close to being in outer space as she is likely ever to know.
She has been married to Ron Cain longer than she has been publishing books.
She is uncomfortable speaking of herself in the third-person.
