I believe in the importance of:
– serial commas
– connecting with nature
– a loaf of bread, warm from the oven
– heirloom tomatoes, freshly picked
– curling up with a good book on a cold day
Who do you live with?
I live with my husband, 2 kids, 1 dog, 1 crayfish, 4 comets, and 3 dead houseplants.
Where do you live?
In the last 10 years we’ve lived in Ann Arbor (MI), Atlanta (GA), Carrboro (NC), Melbourne (Australia), and Simsbury (CT).
What do you like to do?
I love camping, hiking, canoeing, skiing, bird watching, and geocaching. I can spend hours sitting and looking into tidepools and walking along the shore collecting shells. I collect sea shells, sea glass, and rocks. I can’t come home from a stream or beach without a pocket full of rocks or shells. Really. I have jars and jars and jars of rocks and shells in my studio.
If you’re a writer, what’s up with the typos? Do you really read that many books?
I’m dyslexic so pardon my typos — I don’t see them when I edit because I read what I think is on the page instead of what is actually written there.
A teacher taught me to speed read when I was in 4th grade so I read over 100 words an hour but I don’t read every word. I skip most of the small ones.
