About me

Gender Female
Industry Non-Profit
Occupation reprographics and mail specialist
Location Sacramento area, California, United States
Introduction I earned a PhD in English, but my current job has no relationship to my degree. I have 30+ years as a Wiccan, even more years as a feminist, am a former libertarian, and am not quite an omniverous reader, since weakness in math pretty much confines me to the humanities. I have two daughters and one son. My oldest daughter has two sons, my youngest has one. I own two box turtles and one desert tortoise and share care of a bearded dragon. The household also includes my mother, my sister and her boyfriend, my nephew and his two daughters, five horses, two dogs, four cats and some chickens.
Interests reading, writing, walking, knitting and crochet, birding, religious history, history of ideas, current events, peak oil, detective fiction, fantasy fiction

Terry Pratchett and Tom Holt in fantasy fiction; Dorothy Sayers, Raymond Chandler, Andrew Vachss in detective fiction; Patrick O'Brian, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Jane Duncan (obscure Scottish writer), Robert Graves, and many others.
