Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A somewhat quirky individual with an idealistic mind and heart,
complete with a rather creative flair. I take to my activities with
an honest, amateur's humor, but nonetheless try rather seriously to
succeed at the same time.
Originally from out East, New Jersey to be precise, I particularly
enjoy creative writing, the theoretical crafting and playing of
games (most of all board games and role-playing games), chilling
with animals and nature, and learning about mythology and history.
I love to talk with people and learn from them, also hoping they,
in turn, can learn from me. If such advice and knowledge is
desired, of course.
I am sometimes a bit indecisive, and occasionally sound formal and
genteel, but other times can bounce off the walls with glee and
excitement. All told, I'm a well-intentioned sort. Just a bit shy
and a tad romantic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In short, I am about five months into owning a Science
Fiction/Fantasy/Gaming bookstore. I run it from the afternoon to
late hours, and spend the rest of my time writing and designing
historical fiction and fantasy novels, as well as board
Given any additional time, I might hang out at the nearby Carleton

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've maybe driven a motor vehicle all of fifteen times in the past
ten years since I received a license, the product of there being
much mass transportation back in Jersey. As such am a little afraid
to be behind the wheel at any time. I am, however, working to
develop a means of conquering these fears and am learning the mass
transit of the land!
