I love words. One of the manifestations of this passion is a lifelong interest in writing – I completed my first work at the age of four. Unfortunately, I hadn’t quite mastered the alphabet at the time of its creation so its meaning is, at best, enigmatic. Since then, however, I have successfully learned my ABCs and enjoy writing fiction as well as nonfiction.
I am also an avid reader, as my overcrowded bookshelves will tell you. I read primarily science fiction and some fantasy, but generally enjoy anything that has a good sense of humor. The nature of language is another interest of mine and I have been known to lose track of time while reading the dictionary.
Some of my other interests include baking, needlepoint, and yoga. I also happen to be fond of animals, particularly guinea pigs.
