About me

Gender Female
Occupation Your Everyday, Garden-Variety Renaissance Woman
Location Columbus, Ohio, United States
Introduction So many times in my life I have been told, "You should write a book!". So I figured I'd start small. I'm a rabid knitter who also enjoys other types of needlework, sings, and has a ridiculous variety of other interests. You'll probably read a little more about all of these things in days to come.
Interests knitting, singing, old-time fiddle, acoustic guitar, American roots music, bobbin lace, yoga, cooking, genealogy, dogs
Favorite Movies The Accidental Tourist, The Wizard of Oz, Singing In the Rain, and anything with Gene Kelly or Cary Grant. I watch movies to be entertained, not depressed or grossed out.
Favorite Music Pretty much anything except opera or rap. I respect them both as art forms, but they just don't resonate with me. Especially opera. I want to go up to opera singers, pat them on the arm and say, "There, there...just calm down now...it'll be okay..."
Favorite Books The Help, The Elegant Gathering of White Snows, The Secret Life of Bees, Worldwalk, Designated Daughter, Once Upon A Town, anything by Anne Tyler, biographies, knitting and other craft books, big dry history books
