I was born in Spokane, WA, and I very much like the city. Of course, just because I like it doesn't mean I'm staying forever. I have four dogs, a parrot, and a rat, and I absolutely love my animals...with maybe the exception of the parrot, but that's another story. In the real world I work as a cook. In my happy imaginative world, I am a writer, which is always fun. Hopefully someday my happy imaginative world and the real world will be one and the same.
