About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Arts
Occupation Writer (fiction)
Location San Francisco, CA, United States
Introduction I write urban fantasy, and support my burgeoning career by working a "real"job in the service industry. I love food, but not to the extent that the "foodie" label has become of late; I'll enjoy what I eat if my tastebuds approve, regardless of whether it was ethically, sustainably farmed/raised or not (who has that kind of income level, anyway?). I translate and review manga on occasion-- it helps me maintain my mediocre kanji skills, and have an unhealthy addiction to chocolate-covered bacon, genre fiction, and Japanese dramas.

Your bow is not broken but you've run out of arrows. How can you fake being a bard?

Lay my feathered cap on the ground with a hand-written sign that reads, "Donations Gladly Accepted" and warble out a showtune or two (or three)
