I’m an author. I have been for years, but only recently can I say, ‘why yes, I am/will be published,’ which is what people think first when you say you’re an author. But anyone who writes is an author, whether the world has recognized it or not yet.
I’m in my early thirties, though I can probably pass for mid-twenties if not college-aged. That’s pretty awesome. I’m a teacher which is a newer development in my life. I teach both Literature and Theatre. It’s my first year as a full-time instructor, so I’m more than busy with grading and prepping and fending off my students’ apathy.
I have a dog. Marjorie or Margie. She’ll probably get her own page eventually because I think despite my attempts, I’m becoming one of those pet owners. I got her when I shouldn’t have been able to support another living thing, barely could support myself. But she’s mine and puts up with me and it’s pretty nice to come home to someone so excited to see you.
I like hockey. Another decently new development in my life. I’m in my second full season of being a fan. I’m not a sports person normally, but I blame my best friend, Pam, and the awesomeness of the game. Specifically, I love the Flyers (also Pam’s fault). So much that I write for a Flyers blog. Flyersfaithful.com. It’s one of my many links. If you like hockey, you might enjoy my ramblings there. If not, well, I won’t hold it against you for not reading.
