I was born in the jungles of Thailand, was raised in a small farming village in Iowa, lived in the middle of a Texan desert, and now abide in the Ozarks. I get nerd points for being home schooled. I get nerd points revoked for being a basketball jock in high school. I get nerd points again for dressing as Aragorn for LOTR midnight showings. I’m trying to become a world-renowned geek.
I like writing fairy tales, tall tales, and steampunk, and am seriously interested in transmedia storytelling. I like reading and watching well-written adventures. My favorite book? The Wonder Clock by Howard Pyle. My favorite movie? TheReturnoftheKingPan’sLabyrinthIronManSilveradoSneakersStardust (see that? I cheated there).
I’m married to the best man there is. I’m Mama to three adorable children.
I’m specially qualified for the zombie apocalypse in that I know how to load and shoot guns, and I’m a long-distance runner. I’m specially qualified for the energy-crisis apocalypse in that I can ride a horse. I’m specially qualified for the dinoapocalypse or monster apocalypse in that I’m a certified nurse. And I’m specially qualified for the nuclear apocalypse in that I’m not afraid of death or growing a third eye.
