The summary part:
I grew up on a farm outside of Philadelphia, went to a suburban elementary and middle school and then went to a small private school in Center City Philadelphia for high school. I went to college in Connecticut and did a semester abroad in New Zealand. I am six feet tall, I have brown eyes, brown hair, I'm not married and have no children. I eat anything edible - I have no dietary restrictions. The last place I went abroad was Guatemala and Belize. I went to Europe multiple times as a child and teenager, but that's been it, so far, for me and the mother continent. I have one awesome brother plus his awesome wife, my first baby nephew (!), two parents, still together. I have two great roommates, lots of friends living close by and in other parts of the city, and I walk everywhere within 30 minutes walking distance.
I would love to walk walking distances in a foreign country for an extended period, somewhere near both beaches and snow-capped mountains, but first I need a book deal. Of course, I'm aware that it's quite possible that my only book deal will be finding a good deal on a book : ), but, if it's coming, I have to live into failure if I'm going to accept it, that's what I've decided. For those wondering about long term income, I do also have back-up plans, mainly involving writing jobs in fundraising offices.
I lead a full and rewarding life that I wouldn't trade, even for the life of Leonardo DiCaprio, who is now also Jay Gatsby (will Leo pull it off?!). But I'm content with how things are and am not planning any big changes anytime soon. I'm ok with being single, but I am also aware that things would probably be happy on higher level if I was in a relationship. That's it, I have been summarized, thanks for reading.
