About meRetired from a 45-year career arc comprising overlapping stints as a corporate flak (20+ years); professional interactive performer, instructor, dramaturge for both of Texas' two largest renaissance festivals, and on-staff promotions director for one of them (25+ years); and in-home eldercare provider specializing in Alzheimer's (10+ years). What a long, strange trip it's been, but I'm still having fun.

About my libraryIt's known as "Miz Ellen's Infamous Library of Sleazy Pop Fiction and Scholarly Suspect References" amongst my more literarily inclined friends. But guess where they all come first when they're jonesin' for a good read...
