profpicWelcome to my virtual kitchen, where we stand around and talk after dinner over coffee and fresh pie.

Here I write about whatever strikes my fancy or seem worthy of discussion. I like ideas and I’m curious about a myriad of things. Blogging keeps my mind alive.

I’m the founding publisher of The Swan Children and a contributor to The YA Wallpaper.

My name: It’s pronounced with a long “a.” It’s English phonetics, not German.


I am:

  • Book nerd
  • Story collector
  • Spiritual thinker
  • Light-chaser
  • Foodie
  • INFJ
  • Feminist

I’m not:

  • Good at folding laundry
  • Morning person
  • Theologian
  • Fashionista
  • Diplomatic about my opinions
  • Extroverted
  • A dog person

Oh, and my cat says hi.
