About meSF fans of longstanding, conrunners, food blogger, teacher, married 20 years, share house with one cat. Though yearnings are being expressed for more spaniels.

Currently involved with Illustrious (Eastercon 2011), and the bid for Worldcon in London in 2014.

From Her: I've started rating things:

3 is serviceable for purpose,
