("There are lies more believable than truth.")
Better known as a Force of Nature, I have a Master's Degree in Costume Studies from New York University and am about to burst upon the costume design scene...or get my novel published.... (check out mine and others' work over at blatantlyhonest!!)
I currently live here in Nashville, TN with the love of my life, Matt. You'll find his rantings and ramblings at desuvan.
We're both writers, although he means to do that as a career, I just do it for the fun. And the chicks. ;-)
My first novel, A Year and A Day is OUT NOW! and is available at CVS pharmacies, online, and by special order from Borders and Barnes and Noble.
Mostly, I design, research, and create costumes and costume pieces (hats, handkerchiefs, etc.). I will be contributing a chapter on the 17th century to a costume history text for Greenwood Press.
Currently, I am teaching design at the International Academy of Design and Technology in Nashville, TN. I had been working in Franklin, TN as an assistant professor before I was rather unceremoniously "not renewed." Previous to that, I was employed as the Assistant Designer of the Renaissance Pleaure Faire in So.Cal. and before that employed as a Costume Assistant at Walt Disney World (which SUCKED!). I have spent most of my life doing theatre and I also dabble in opera. I have been working at the CA Renaissance Pleasure Faires for more seasons than I care to admit to and I have been gaming for even longer than that!
I have a very dramatic Border Collie/Blue Heeler mix named Guinevere. She's the silly-sulky-sighing light of my life!
In January 2008 we added to the canine family with Eowyn, a foundling stray who turns out to be a half yellow lab and half Basenji. We originally intended to take her in as a foster but she grew on us so we've kept her. She is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met and a welcome addition to the pack!
I began this journal as a medium for this wacky existence better known as my life...so I thought I would use this venue to collect my thoughts, recount my adventures, keep you good people up on the news of my life, post fiction and poetry, and have a way to receive feedback. I am having lots of adventures as I have been on the move all across America since 2000.
I shall impart for you my Romany wisdom with my Three Rules of Life:
Rule #2 No matter how much it may suck right now, trust me, it will be funny later.
Rule #3Don't get caught! (The old gypsy saying goes, "If you can't be good, be careful. And if you can't be careful, be quick!")
