I'm an artist -- primarily a painter but I'm wading deeper into developing my writing as well. I enjoy visiting new places, sipping well-crafted cocktails and sharing meals with enthusiastic people. The only thing I collect is books. I don't go anywhere without a pen and something to write in or on, and when I travel, I usually carry two or three notebooks for ideas and journalling. Wine is good and cheese is great.
Usually I'm accompanied by my husband, an engineer who works at bridging the gap between science fiction and real life. We share our lives with two cats and a small flock of backyard ducks.
