From the beginning, you say? I was raised in an evangelical Christian household or two (long story), and was groomed to go to college, earn multiple degrees, and then succeedbeyond everyone’s wildest imaginings as a professor and author and whatever else.

I did attend college, where I finished losing my religion, became Pagan, picked up one solitary liberal arts degree, and graduated seven months pregnant. I guess you could say that taking the easy road is not my forte…

…but taking the most colorful (and usually the happiest) road is. I have three amazing children, a menagerie, an impossible last name, and — most recently — I run a public Facebook page with my poetry, my alcohol ink artwork, and whatever else I get up to. Makers gonna make and all.

Oh, but the author thing? If you skip the “successful” part, I’ve done that too. More than once. šŸ™‚ I have at least one more collection in the works, hopefully out by Samhain 2019!

Life is far too beautiful to tame. It’s an unbridled mare with places to go, so grab a fistful of mane and hang on (wild giggles in the wind totally optional, but highly recommended).

[Other Stuff: I’m an OBOD Druid, a flamekeeper in Ord Brighideach International, a cross-pantheon polytheist, and an avid Tarot reader. I believe anyone can benefit from a Tarot-as-a-tool approach to personal empowerment. I also sing (whatever random song floats through my head) and am an officer in my local Lions Club.]
