About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Arts
Occupation author/illustrator
Location independence, MO, United States
Introduction A cranky, quirky, funny dame, a cronette, divided in demeanor between fizzy optimism and dispirited melancholy (I treat the latter with new projects, the latest being an early-18th century gentleman's coat that I sewed for myself out of a length of blue denim, decorated w/ brass buttons.) An entertaining speaker I am, to many a gym or library full of students, a fine writer about dead people and things historical, a middling harmonica player and illustrator of many a book, 40 or so & counting.
Interests how folks dressed back upstream in the living past. painting.
Favorite Movies Enchanted April, Princess Cariboo, Hobson's Choice w/ the great John Mills & Charles Laughton
Favorite Music Pete Seeger, L.v.Beethoven's 6th Symphony, Beatles
Favorite Books Time and Again (Jack Finney), The Beekeeper's Apprentice (Laurie R. King), A Peculiar Treasure (Edna Ferber), The Code of the Woosters (P.G. Wodehouse)
