Geography

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.

Minutia

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.
