I grew up in a crazy southern family of seven brothers and a sister; needless to say, I’m a tomboy, a feminist of the Susan B. Anthony variety, and only once lost an arm-wrestling match to a girl.   I love reading, writing, and music.  I also love hiking, running, and anything else that requires loads of work and a low degree of coordination.  I’m married to my best friend Ethan and am a caregiver to way too many people.
