I've lived in the Twin Cities since I was born, with sojourns abroad and in exotic Madison Wisconsin. I enjoy trying new restaurants, climbing around in the underbrush in parks, going to indie films, and exploring interesting and offbeat places around town.
I love traveling, and have lived in Ireland and in China. I have lots more places on my list: London, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and so many more.
I write in my spare time and try to do photography. I'm not pretentious, though: I'll talk your ear off about books, and I read almost everything. Since library school, I've read lots of children's and young adult fiction.
I'm quite family oriented, and am close to my parents, siblings, cousins, and grandparents. I'm extremely loyal, and I have known many of my friends since I was a little girl. I'm caring and nurturing, and I worked as a toddler teacher until recently.
