Life is Big

PRing a deadlift. More than 1 1/2 times my body weight. Still looking to double it one day.

This blog covers a lot of territory.

I’ve been drawing since I was 5 and writing stories since I was 12. Publishing was never my dream. A life of adventure was, and fiction was one way to do that. So I put form to my fantasies.

But I didn’t stop there.

I learned to scuba dive, failed wonderfully at snowboarding, tore my ACL kickboxing, was once a ranked racquetball competitor, gained 100 pounds, lost 100 pounds, became a certified personal trainer, met a ghost, owned rabbits, birds, gerbils, and dogs, competed on bowling and softball teams, learned ancient Greek, married men, romanced women, had children, led a Catholic ministry, homeschooled my kids, taught chess, and tutored algebra and geometry.

Hanging out on top of the world (well..South Dakota) with my oldest.

I have seen every episode of every Scooby Doo and Star Trek series, supervised hundreds of kids at recess, completed 3 World Beer Tours at Old Chicago, studied astrology since 1979, and attended a community college, a private liberal arts college, an Ivy League university, and a state university.

I graduated summa cum laude with a BA in classical studies, am a member of Mensa, spent a year as an assistant editor on a Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy, and the books I read most often are histories of late Rome and the early Church.

My favorite holiday along with my favorite character.

I’ve made an income as a graphic designer, illustrator, screenprinter, hardware store clerk, web programmer, database developer, personal trainer, paraeducator, astrologer, micropublisher, weekend donut-maker, and novel and short story author. I owned my own fitness studio for seven years.

Currently, I’m writing and illustrating the next book of the Darklaw Saga and writing a memoir. I walk with the Dao, am married to a man, date women, follow a carnivore diet, take piano lessons, try to spend as much time with my kids as they can stand, and attend CrossFit 4-5 times a week.
