Animal lover. Chocolate and Cheese aficionado (wine falls into that category, too). I'm from New Hampshire, went to school in D.C., have traveled to London, been to Alaska, climbed volcanoes in Guatemala and have driven across country once. I don't have cable TV but when I do get around a TV and have a remote in my hand it gets dangerous. I enjoy a good swim at the beach and prefer to live close to the water. I'm not good at math so that's why I write. I like to laugh and like to make other people smile. My favorite movie? Hmmm. It's a toss up between The King and I, The Sound of Music or Mary Poppins. My favorite book? The Book of Virtues and Crime and Punishment. I can't live without spicy food.
