About meI'm a fairly random person, often with red or blue streaks in my hair, and I'm addicted to writing, teaching, and working tech for theaters. In the in between, I help organize poetry events and art shows, try to have a social existence with my amazing husband and beyond, and find new ways to procrastinate what I Should be doing....like this. Critter-wise, my husband and I have four rescues: a neurotic hound-dog, a large fluffy cat who we got the week we went on our honeymoon, and our two most recent additions, two much younger cats who keep our household fairly chaotic. Outside of the animals, life is in flux. I recently quit work on my dissertation to focus on other writing, and finished up my first novel last year (I'm currently looking for an agent). I also write poetry (which is what I've got the most experience getting published), and I've recently started writing skits and one-acts for children since I started teaching drama at a summercamp two years ago. We've just relocated from Pittsburgh to Cape Coral, Florida (YAY!), and while I've been a university instructor in the past, I've more recently been working as a book editor.

About my libraryProbably about as random as you get. I read mostly contemporary work Lately since that's what I've been teaching, and my nonfiction tastes tend to run toward environmental or biography, though lately I've been reading about the grotesque and trauma, but that's about as much as you can pin me down...and I'm sure my library will find ways to contradict this description no matter what I write. Most of my books are entered here, I think, though there are still some boxes in storage at my family's house. In general, if it's been reviewed, I've read it, and if it hasn't, I haven't (or don't own it), though there are many anthologies which I've read various parts of and haven't reviewed. When it comes to what's here though, the obvious point of interest is simply that I'm addicted to books.

In my "To Read" collection, there are many many anthologies which I've read significant portions of, but they're listed in "To Read" until done. Also there are many many books which I have read, but so long ago that they need to be reread before I can think of reviewing them or remember more than that "I really liked that a long time ago..." (which is why I now review everything I read, to refresh my memory as much as for the system). This is the case with most of the Elfquest books, quite a few of the older suspense novels, and some of the classics as well.
