Fantasy and science fiction have been my lifeblood since I was too young to stay up and watch the complete episode of Star Trek: Voyager. I have several fandoms that I follow with varying amounts of rabid foaming, but it's all in good fun most of the time. If I had to pick a favorite, The Princess Bride is right at the top, well, at least as of the writing of this bio.
Aside from writing, I am also a classically trained violinist. I have a few students I teach weekly, and I really enjoy working with them. I also crochet, play D&D with friends, and, of course, read my little heart out. I have a small menagerie I manage with my husband here at home including three dogs, two cats, and six chickens. If you ever get the opportunity to keep chickens, I highly recommend them. They're a lot more entertaining than you might expect.
Some of my favorite authors include J.R. Ward, R.A. Salvatore, Anne McCaffrey, Tad Williams, Mercedes Lackey, Jean Auel, and Sherwood Smith, to name a few.
