Writer, animal rescue volunteer, servant of cats, hermit recluse. Bibliophile. Occasional marathoner.

Selectively misanthropic. Given to visible demonstrations of temper. Limited skills of patience. Questionable powers of social interaction.

I don’t shop for clothes. I don’t answer the phone. I don’t want you to bring your kids. I don’t want to see pictures of your kids. I don’t want to talk about the book I’m writing. I don’t need help with the plot. I do not require opinions or beta readers. I don’t spend money except on running gear, races, and the vet.  (And books.)

I do like the seasons — all of them. I do enjoy severe weather (all kinds). I do love the west coast, open bodies of water (especially lake superior), any animal, Nevada, Utah, road trips, and a really good dark roast. I do want to talk to you one-on-one. I do want to know what you hate, and what you love, where you’ve been, and why you went. I do want to know what question you would most like answered. I travel extensively within the US. I read exhaustively. I write daily.

Frequently distracted to the point of leaving the house in slippers and/or without pants. People sometimes think I’m destitute; I do not blame them.
