I was born and raised in Southern California: LA/Orange/Riverside counties. I was a horse-riding, poetry scribbling, beach creature. I also lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota for about 12 years, before moving to Austin, Texas in 2010.
In Europe, I visited: Amsterdam, Hanover, Berlin, Leipzig, Prague, Munich, Vienna, Strasbourg, Le Havre, Sheffield and London, England and scores of other unsung locations off the beaten path. There was a good bit of hitchhiking.
In Ireland, I visited: Rosslare, Dingle, Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, Galway, Lisdoonvarna, Ennis, Dublin, and many more locales.
Lived in: A wee coastal town in County Clare, Ireland. I worked in pubs and restaurants, hiked around the Burren moonscape, read lots of books, wrote lots of writerly things, and hitchhiked up and down the west coast.
Interests and influences: Nature, biology, ethology, zoology, paleontology, urban archeology, science and natural history museums, and medical collections such as the Mütter Museum. I especially enjoy cooking and baking, watching movies, reading, live music and concerts, organic gardening, and PC gaming.
Book I re-read the most: Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson (1992)
