Introduction Diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer on April 26, 2013, at the age of 38. Talk about a nasty surprise. Since then, I've had a million rounds of chemo, more pills than I can count, four hospital stays, three different SBRT therapies, two major surgeries, and a partridge in a pear tree.
Interests "I'm a list maker, a risk taker, and a cookieeeee baker; I read my books out in the suuuuun, I'm a writer, I'm a biter...not really, I don't want to hurt no one." I like cheesy music, knitting needles, skiing fast, and talking foreign policy. I love my family, my friends, and my cozy house. Life is unexpectedly good, cancer and all.
Favorite Music Prince, all the songs on the Glee albums (shut up), Indigo Girls, She & Him, "All About that Bass, " Lady Gaga, spa music, especially with little tinkly pianos. I dunno.
Favorite Books Oh, that's not a fair question. Here are some on my favorite shelves, though (in no particular order): Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, The Book Thief, A Farewell to Arms, Sylvia Beach and the Lost Generation, A Tale for the Time Being, Life at These Speeds, Moby Dick, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, The Magicians series, Zone One, Never Let Me Go, Station Eleven, All the Light We Cannot See, H is For Hawk, Peace Meals, Matterhorn, Trouble in Mind, Dreams of Trespass, The Little Zen Companion, Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
