Writer.  Black belt.  Self-defense instructor.  Home chef.  Outlander fanatic.  Tequila snob.  Fitness geek.  Companion of dogs.  My favourite book is The Lions of Al-Rassan by Guy Gavriel Kay.  I eat cheese every day of my life.  I live on an island in the Pacific.  I drive stick shift and have two tattoos (so far).  Tea is necessary for my existence.  My writing room is painted an eye-stabbing orange, but it makes me happy.
