My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm shy but not for too long. I really like water, especially oceans and swamps. I think spanish moss is hauntingly beautiful. I love those ghost tv shows--you know the ones, where they tell the story of the haunted places with great fanfare that are on like the travel channel and discovery. I can't pass a bookstore without going in. I think bread is easily the best thing on earth, save for chocolate. I do a lot of yoga. I have a thing for vintage pin-ups and antique iconography.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I work freelance for a couple of organizations, watch a lot of really cute kids, and spend my free time agonizing over over sentences and how they could be better. Occasionally, I teach yoga.

It sounds a little trite but probably my eyes. They are a weird color, a sort of goldish green.

I really am gonna answer this question--the book question--as soon as I can narrow down an acceptable length list.

I don't watch a ton of TV but there are the heretofore mentioned ghost story shows. I am all about reruns of Unsolved Mysteries these days. I own all of My-So-Called-Life on dvd which I've broken out since starting into Party of Five on Amazon Prime. I'm not sure what the root of this '90s television thing is, except I suspect it's this: but...what is the term for suddenly discovering you can watch all the shows you were banned from watching (so had to sneak around to watch) in your youth, with abandon?

I can be a bit of a musical embarrassment. Just wait--you'll see. I love country music. I can't help it. I'm from Texas. That should be an excuse? I really like Texas Country and bluegrass and the blues.
And, I confess to having a soft spot for Patty Griffin.

A list, in no particular order: pancakes, kale, cornbread, figs, oysters, chocolate, bread. And some other things too. And cake. Hmm. . .is bourbon a food?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
family and friends, books, baths, traveling, yoga, pets.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
mermaids. Strange, I know. I am knee-deep in mermaid mythology about which I am trying to write. I think a lot about whatever it is I am reading at the moment.

Lately, I think a lot about what it means to be authentic and about how one goes about making a novel.

I am always thinking about desire. Oh, and bodies. I think a lot about bodies, mine and other peoples. What it means to be embodied, their relationship to the self and the other, and how I am going to get mine (or anyone else's) into many a crazy yoga pose.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't really have a typical Friday night. Could be doing anything from meeting friends for drinks, seeing a movie or grabbing dinner, to curling up with a cat and a book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I don't know why this seems personal but. . .it does: the two best things I have ever eaten were consumed on the same day in Avignon, France. That morning I had an almond croissant. It was incredible--still hot, crunchy, gooey on the inside; the burnt-looking crust shattered the second my mouth touched it to sheets of hardened sugar. It was literally perfect. Like have to close your eyes, toe-curling good. That afternoon I had some Louisiana flavored ice cream while I was walking through the walled city.

Also, I am always misplacing, but eventually finding, my keys.
