I've got a degree in history - the period of choice is the Civil War. I enjoy long walks on battlefields at midnight... No really, I do! I would like to work at a Civil War Battlefield when I grow up... and write novels on the side. It's a toss up as to when I might consider myself actually grown up.
I could also live quite happily in Wales- preferably in the South near Swansea and Cardiff (but where there's plenty of nice scenery and castles) and write for a living.
I am a practicing witch and I'm not open to being converted and I hate being preached at.
I love traveling and going on adventures- and if there are ghostsor old ruinous castles involved, I'm in. I think that falling in love would be an interesting adventure.
I read a lot, and I write, and I like guys who are well-read and erudite. It bothers me that there are people in this world who are proud of the fact that they don't like to read!
And no, before you even ask, I live no-where near Chicago. Havana is a little town on the Illinois River midway between Peoria and Springfield.
I have severe asthma, and since cigarette/ cigar smoke and smoke residue are some of the worst triggers for me; I don't go out with smokers. It has nothing to do with how nice or good-looking or smart the guy is, if he smokes, I'm not interested. This is strictly for my health and peace of mind. I've had to explain this a couple of times lately, so I'm putting this on my profile in hopes of forestalling anymore awkward conversations.
I am erudite, esoteric, and oddly charming.
