After careers as a jeweler, landscape designer, and most recently as a nursing home administrator, I divide my free time between my passions of gardening and dance. Over the last 12 years, I have performed, choreographed, and twirled my heels for fun in dance styles ranging from 17th to the 20th century. Swing, Country Western Line, and Vintage dancing (historical recreation of styles from the English Regency, Civil War, Victorian and Ragtime Era) are my current favorites. I have one remaining vice, and it is called coffee. Mmmmmmm!
Laura my partner has worked as computer programmer throughout the US and abroad for nearly 30 years. As a Geek / Nerd, she is fond of all things technical, electrical, shiny, Elven, Whovian and Pratchett. However, she shares a passion for making things grow, as well as dance. She is an avid reader; amateur thespian as well as loves to cook, and is a slave to all things cat.
To compose our characters is our duty, not to compose books, and to win, not battles and provinces, but order and tranquility in our conduct. Our great and glorious masterpiece is to live appropriately. All other things, to rule, to lay up treasure, to build, are at most but little appendices and props.
