1. i'm a vegan turned carnivore. after being vegetarian for the better part of 15 years and vegan for 2, i found the lifestyle just wasn't supporting my body and mind. though i'm a picky picky carnivore and only eat organic/free range/preferably pastured meat and eggs. no dairy. no wheat. yeah, i'm loads of fun!
2. i'm an avid knitter and novice yarn spinner. i love knitting gifts for people, but mostly knit cutesy items for myself.
3. i'm a total 'hippy mom' (hence the veganism...it just made sense). i had two drug-free births, nursed both of my children for years (and am a big proponent of breastfeeding awareness). Even now, at 6 and 8, they still often end up in our bed at night and i wouldn't have it any other way.
luckily, it hasn't hindered me too much in writing. i drafted THE OFFERING after the fact and i'm quite proud of that one! who knows...it's possible i wouldn't have thought of that story had i not hit my head. yes...let's focus on that.
5. i refer to my writing space as "my cave". it's really my living room, but when i'm writing, i turn down the lights, light candles, play music (A MUST!), and have a cup of coffee or tea. ambiance baby!
