About me

Occupation Stay-at-home mom, previously a professional writer/editor.
Location Port Washington, New York, United States
Introduction I'm the indoorsy type, but love gardening (veggies and herbs). I love even more my three rescue dogs -- a 16-year-old male dachshund (adopted at 14), a 13-year-old female dachshund (adopted at 10), and a 7-or-so-year-old female dachshund/chihuahua mix. I also have a 15-year-old cat (female), and a variety of freshwater fish of indeterminate age and gender. I'm married with children -- who never fail to make me laugh. Their existence validates my belief that sarcasm actually IS hereditary. Or, at the very least, osmotic.
