The picture is a little out of date. My hair is now silver. I have returned to my home town, Estes Park, Colorado to live because it turns out I had a deficiency of mountains in my life. I’m writing a novel with a partner (“World Enough and Time”, soon to have its own blog and/or webpage) and one on my own (“Crawfish Blues”, which I will talk about in its own category on this blog). I’m an actress (no, not an actor) and a director and look forward to new opportunities in Estes Park to explore roles and plays. I am an editor, both of text and of film.
In my personal life, I am a cook, seamstress and needlepointer. I spend a lot of time reading, as most writers do, but I also watch certain TV series and movies for both professional and personal reasons.
Special interests include, but are not limited by, studying the symbology of the Tarot and learning more about I Ching. I have a deep interest in history, archaeology and anthropology and am studying linguistics. I am always interested in newly uncovered information about the Celts. A lighter but no less fascinating study is that of culture and etiquette. I have a collection of antique etiquette books I use for historical research and just for fun. The way people live, they way they interacted with others and created cultures and civilizations intrigues me. As a part of that, I’m exploring my ancestry, i.e., genealogy, through Ancestry.com, on which I have an account. So far, I’ve followed my ancestors up the tree to Sweden (where language difficulties are beginning to appear — I don’t speak or read Swedish) and early Virginia. My father’s line is being much more difficult, since I have less information to start with.
