Birthday: Aries on the cusp of Taurus, which means I am passionate, stubborn, and like to be in charge.
Family: Not married, no children; many siblings, and as a result I have twelve nieces and nephews ranging from toddler to in mid-twenties. One funny-faced dog.
Stuff: A large collection of CDs and books, that is slowly being converted into digital because I just don’t have any more shelf space. A growing collection of Funko Pops, which mostly live on my desk at my day job.
Work: Said day job is kind of awesome with occasional bouts of “OH WHY WHY WHY.” I have also been everything from a janitor to a radio announcer on a classical music station.
Education: associate’s degree in history, bachelor’s degree in humanities/English literature. Master’s degree in comparative literature begun but not completed; life got in the way. I keep thinking I’ll go back and get a graduate degree someday. We’ll see.
Writing: decided to Be A Writer at the age of nine; finally got the first novel published in 2007, many years later. Meantime, wrote a lot for an audience of me; then for an audience of friends and roommates; then discovered fanfiction and … well, fanfiction happened. It’s been mostly good to me. There have also been four original novels, about two dozen novellas and short stories, and a few freebies of various lengths.
