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 work for various local stores at a nearby year-round farmers market, 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. When I have time, I'm involved in community theatre, and I also log as many miles as possible on my road bike on bike paths and city streets.
I have two grown children and a brilliant, gregarious 5-year-old granddaughter who lives with me and keeps me busy and amused. 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)
