I love reading people’s “About the Author” pages, but I cringe at the idea of writing one myself. *bites bullet and gets to work*
Here are some facts about me:
- I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology (Pacific Lutheran University), a Master’s of Science in Oceanography (Scripps Institution of Oceanography) and a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Music (Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts).
- I’m a vegetarian. (I tried being a vegan, but it didn’t take.) I’m also a bit of a foodie and I love to bake.
- I grew up in America, I’ve married an Englishman, and I live in Somerset. So my cultural references come from both sides of the Atlantic.
- In addition to America and Britain, I’ve lived in Brazil, China, and Australia. I’ve also visited Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Germany, France, Austria, New Zealand, Hong Kong (post-1997 so technically China) and Tibet (post-1950 so also technically China). But not Japan.
