Has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
I do too. But then again, it’s something I’ve been working towards for, well, years. So for me, it’s EXTREMELY satisfying to be able to say that with some actual chops behind it.
For today, I’m going to tell you about myself.
I’m on the wrong side of forty - or maybe the right side of forty, I’m not sure yet. I attended Deerfield Academy and a number of colleges - college, for me, was spoiled by the Academy, THE finest educators I have ever encountered. But I have lately decided that I needed to have a little fun, so I went off to college for a culinary certificate and a liberal studies degree.
I am living with a wonderful woman, thank you very much.
I have three children and she has two, none of whom actually live with us; fortunately for them, only one resembles me strongly; the other two have escaped that fate.
I work for the US Census Bureau, when I'm not in school or writing or tending the animals.
Speaking of animals, we have four cats, three dogs, thirteen chickens, six ducks, and a fishtank.
I live in Maine - no, it’s NOT as cold as you think it is, at least not all the time, and we DON’T all have that ridiculous accent! Boston is my all-time favorite city. We are regular attendees to DragonCon; I took my oldest to PAXEast last year; we've seen Halestorm (twice), Jimmy Buffett, Alton Brown, and are off to see Ringo Starr this summer.
Oh yeah. Writer. Professional, thank you very much.
