about 

I've never been a big fan of the sailor look, but I certainly got a lot of attention when my mother paraded me around the French Quarter in this get-up and other attention-seeking garb. 

I'm a writer and a librarian and have learned the hard way that neither of these activities are well suited to extroverts.  

 

I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, and lived in Seattle for the last 14 years. I recently relocated to Pittsburgh, because it is like my hometown but without any of the people I went to high school with. 

I love shopping and eating, but I'm running out of money and none of my pants fit.

I will never wear a Little Black Dress.
