I always worry that these About pages are going to end up sounding like an example of how not to fill out a dating site questionnaire. I don't know that for sure, because I'm married, and I've never had the opportunity to do any online dating. But I'm paranoid about it, nonetheless.
After that last paragraph, it will likely come as no surprise to you that I'm a little on the awkward side.
In addition to awkward, I'm also a little nerdy - Buffy, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Firefly/Serenity, The Walking Dead etc. are favorites. I love to read (again, a huge lack of surprise) and I'm also a craft fiend - sewing, cross stitching, knitting, jewelry making, pottery, card making...pretty much if the craft exists, I want to do it. Except for crocheting. No matter how hard I try, I can't make that work.
But writing is my passion. I love creating stories where the magical and mundane collide, and it's necessary for the characters to find their way out of the darkness of their lives.
I'm married to an awesome guy who makes me laugh (hugely important) and we have two amazing teenage boys and three psychotic cats. I love animals, but cats are my favorite. Of course, if I could get away with having pet bats, foxes and squirrels, I totally would.
I live in Michigan and I love it. It's full of a wild sort of beauty that sometimes seems almost otherworldly. Wild crashing waves on the shores of the Great Lakes, dark, tangled forests and rolling hills. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
