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.
