I am a writer. Always a reader. Sometimes a runner. I’ve been a marathoner and a triathlete. I’m a seasonal gardener, a sporadic cheesemaker, and an occasional baker.
I adore cheese and French 75s. Rosé in the garden in summer is one of the best experiences in the world. I am not crafty, but every once in a while, Pinterest makes me think otherwise. I love building Lego creations. (This is not playing Legos with my kid, though – he doesn’t properly follow the instructions).
I have several tattoos, a normal amount of piercings, and not nearly as many beautiful high heels as I used to.
I’ve been writing stories for as long as I can remember, but didn’t publish my first novel until I was 40.
I’m not fond of heights, or crowds, or people in general. I do like travel, though, so I put up with flying coach until such time as I have my own private time machine (and or airplane).
I live in Portland with my kidlet, my boyfriend (the beer guy), two cats, and one fish.
I write a lot about the Bean and writing and reading. I will tell you every time I fall down (which I do more frequently than recommended). I also talk about running and weight loss and exercising and food much more than is interesting, unless you’re me.
