I'm passionate about so many things it's hard to know where to start. I'm a writer and slave to my muse, Dolores, who only visits me in the middle of the night. To support us, I teach creative writing in a local magnet school for the arts, and take on various freelance writing and editing jobs. Because I'm greedy, I also perform weddings and read tarot cards. I play several instruments, but mainly piano and guitar, and I perform with friends whenever I get the chance. In the past couple of years, I've gotten involved in community theatre and acted in or stage managed several plays. And last summer, I bought a road bike and logged a bunch of miles on bike paths and city streets.
I have two grown children and a brilliant toddling granddaughter who smells like the inside of a fairy's wrist. I homeschooled my kids in the suburbs for 12 years, and was married to an Air Force officer for 30 years. I'm divorced now and live in a 110-year-old house in a diverse city neighborhood.
My goal is to enjoy as many adventures as I can. I write about them on my blog: The Reticulated Writer. (reticulatedwriter.blogspot.com)
