I live in a creaky old house in Seattle with one husband, a couple of kids, and an abundance of animals. Really. They just keep arriving with suitcases.
When I'm not home, I might be at the library. Or hiking in the woods. Sometimes I go kayaking if I can stop myself from thinking about sharks.
Before moving to Seattle, I lived in 6 states and 3 countries. I’ve lived above a Spanish movie theatre, in a very old hotel next to some castle ruins, and in a desert where I checked my shoes for scorpions every day.*
I’ve worked as a teacher, a crisis counselor, a waitress, and a mail sorter. There are a few other jobs that are blocked out/top secret.
I was born in Wyoming, but grew up all over the western United States. My mom is Mexican-American and my dad is Anglo, so I'm a bit of each.
I spent a lot of time in the principal’s office in school.
I like to read, make things with my hands, cook, watch baseball, and goof off. **
* I found scorpions in there a few times. I'm afraid of scorpions. And sharks. And runny eggs.
