About

I am at heart a science fiction fan, but also a lover of literature and the humanities in general. I am somewhat aspirationally a writer. I also do family history research with a focus on social history rather than lineage societies. I am the guardian of two now elderly cats. I belong to a liberal Christian church. I am an Apple fan, but I like paper planners. I’m obsessive about Star Trek and Freddie Mercury, my lifelong loves. Sometimes I do cross-stitch embroidery. I work as an English professor at a community college. I love the summer and the ocean.
