I’ve been writing since I can hold a pen, though it’s only been since my mid-twenties that I’ve written work I can really be proud of. I love the fantasy genre in particular, but I’m also a bit of a nut for classic literature, from Shakespeare to Austen to Verne. Anyone who think early English lit hasn’t realized just how saucy Chaucer was. (No, really. Google it– that man said… things.)
Professionally, I work as a PHP developer– the sort of code that makes fancy webpages like this work behind the scenes. I also read, cook, bake, draw, sew (I have an entire room dedicated to crafts), dance, garden, blog, and I tend to haunt my local town’s small businesses. Particularly their coffee shops, bakeries, and art stores.
I live in the Seattle area, and I participate in NaNoWriMo every November (National Novel Writing Month). I also have been known to visit the local nerd conventions and run with the steampunk crowd. I’m obnoxiously friendly; if you drop me a line, I’ll try to get back to you. And hey, if you’re local, coffee and chatting are always good things.
