I'm a native Texan, a writer, and a nonprofit worker. When I'm not working, I'm cooking, running, swimming, spoiling my pug, or trying to get outdoors. I have a master's in creative writing and adequate talents in the kitchen and swimming pool. I can't live without beer and coffee and tacos. I also love Korean food, Kurt Vonnegut, and Waylon Jennings. I tend to wear boots or flip flops, when permissible, and I'm happy when the house is clean. I like wood floors and hate overhead lighting. I don't have cable, and the TV is in the back of the house. If I were rich, I would own a boat and an oyster bar/bookstore. As it is, I'll be happy if I can get a good garden going.
