ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT ME
Other work: In addition to working as an indie author and researcher, I've been a freelance history writer, a newspaper reporter and copy editor, an e-zine publisher and editor, an editorial assistant for academic publishers, a library assistant, a college archive assistant, a bookstore clerk, an office supplies store clerk, and a 5&10 clerk who lusted after the contents of the stationery section.
Preferred pronouns: They/their/them.
Personal life: Born in Michigan in April 1963 and initially raised
in the rural village of Berrien
Springs, Michigan, I mainly lived from ages eight to fifty-one in the
New Deal planned community of Greenbelt,
Maryland (a suburb of Washington, D.C.), before moving in 2014 to Havre
de Grace, Maryland (a historic port town at the tip of the Chesapeake
Bay). A graduate of St.
John's College in Annapolis (which has a Great
Books curriculum), I also lived in Annapolis for five years, in Baltimore
for five years, and in England – primarily Oxford – for an accumulated
total of two years. I'm a member of various literary communities and of
the disability, lgbtq, mental health, and simple living communities. A
homebody, I divide most of my time between researching, writing, releasing
stories, and homemaking.
