About meBorn in Sandusky, OH, USA to a Scottish mother and Hungarian father.

Two sisters---Four children---One grandchild...

Lived in at least 30 different locations.

Always loved language but didn't begin writing seriously till my 40s.

I'm a writer with roaring flames in my heart...

Just for fun---my NerdTest Results :-)

About my libraryThese are the books that make me want to write.

Nearly all, I've read---some, many times.

Only the books that truly "matter" to me will be on my shelves at LibraryThing---even the ones I've yet to read "matter" to me.

I'm sure there are quite a few that used to matter; and, if I remembered them, would matter again...

I suppose it's an issue of mind over matter: "If I don't mind, it doesn't matter." :-)

"As far as self-publishing, I'm quite a ways down that road and been blogging about it for a couple years now."

I'm only supposed to be involved in the production end. If you're "quite a ways" down that road with only one book listed on your author page, I'm guessing that you've been concentrating more on the stuff my husband is supposed to be handling: marketing and promotion and so forth. So I'll pass the word about your blog along to him. :)
Hi! We don't look like we share many books or have amazingly similar tastes, so I assume you found my library interesting because I'm local. Well... close by, anyway. You probably don't come to Jamestown much, but my husband and I do visit the Kettering Rec center every so often to play disc golf. :)

I hope you don't find my replying intrusive. I just wanted to say that I haven't been doing much on LT because I've been trying to get ready to start on this self-publishing stuff, (technically my husband is the publisher, but it probably amounts to the same thing), and so it's been nose to the grindstone for a couple months now, and no time for socializing... or even reading, much. And my husband unexpectedly going in for surgery a week from the planned release date (which ended up not actually being the actual release date -- no big surprise, I guess) hasn't helped.

That's why you've seen no recent activity from me. I really am still around.
I hope.

Welcome to LT!
Oh, a local author, with a unique background, who chose my library as interesting. What a beautiful compliment for me today. Thank you!

Notes from an Alien sounds intriguing. I'll keep my eyes open for it!
I voted. Good idea.
Oh, well that sounds just fine - I sent you my email address just now, and I can read either Word.doc or Adobe.pdf. Very nice of you. Thanks.
Insightful - that is what my SF that I wrote was - an alternate history :)
Thank you that you are still giving free copies of your book, and for the link. I'll go download one. Appreciate it.

Hello my new friend from my favorite other country. Your book looks like one that would interest me. I tried writing science fiction but my strength is in research and making a new way to look at data that is already 'out there' - but in a way it has not yet been presented. So currently I have my head in the Medieval age in England circa Magna Carta, putting together a book for relatives on how it came about and who was there (many of whom are our direct ancestors).

I see we share Cukoo's Egg by C.J. Cherryh - I have read most of her works but this one is one of my favorites, along with Hunter of Worlds, along with Serpent's Reach and the Chanur trilogies. Such marvelous aliens.

Thank you for inviting me. It has been a long while since I've been on Library Thing.
