I am a woman 'of a certain' age who loves to write but is finding it a humbling, learning experience.  I primarily write SS/HG and primarily only read SS/HG, but give a good recommendation, and I'll read it.


I am married with a son, 3 cats (Fred, George, Freckles), and 1 snake whom my son refused to name Severus. 


Live in Central PA, but didn't start out here; got here via NY, Germany, and California. 


Becoming addicted to challenges........


Work full time and probably will until I am dead!
