OCCUPATION: I’m a secretary for a living/writer because I can’t live without writing
MARRIED: Yes, since 1990.
CHILDREN/AGES: None, despite my best efforts.
HOBBIES/INTERESTS: writing, movies, music, running
BEST MEMORY OF HIGH SCHOOL: Walking out of the door for the final time.
BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO YOU SINCE HIGH SCHOOL: Meeting and marrying my husband; completing my first novel; making a major difference in the lives of some families struggling with infertility.
SOMETHING SPECIAL TO BRAG ABOUT: 23 years after leaving high school, I am graduating from college, cum laude, on August 14th. I received a Phi Theta Kappa scholarship and an Outstanding Transfer Student scholarship that paid for my education. It’s been a long, hard slog, and I feel great that I did it!
In the past (twenty years) give your opinion of the best in the following catagories:
Movies: I’m a total movie whore, so it’s hard to limit my choice. Would include the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Schindler’s List, The Last Emperor. My significantly younger self loved Reds, but I don’t know if I’d still love it now.
Literature: The His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman
Television: Alias, CSI (the first two seasons), Without a Trace, Buffy TVS
Music: Too much good music to single a few out. I love REM, Barenaked Ladies, Harry Connick Jr., Avril Lavigne, No Doubt . . .
Cultural Events: The Berlin Wall immediately comes to mind, as does the dissolution of the USSR.
