I shake you warmly by the hand and offer many welcomes!
Currently a writer, artist, homeschooler, and explorer, I have played many other roles. I’ve managed a restaurant, debated across the country, taught children in Spain, run a handful of student organizations and retreats, served as the Editor/Producer/Citizen Journalist Manager for a nonprofit, sung in choir for many years, volunteered with dozens of organizations and interned with a few, home-schooled two wonderful people, taught CPR and first aid, painted faces, cared for many a pet, tutored college students, and protested a thing or two. I am married to my rugged adventurer/high school sweetheart, and together we have a very tenacious explorer/nine-year-old daughter. Here at my blog, these two are known as Indy and Wood Sprite.
Aside from my love of writing, art, reading, and generally being as ambitious as possible, I enjoy playing with my daughter, learning new things, having date nights with The Husband, traveling, swimming, karaoke and highlighting anything within my reach. We are active in several homeschool groups, 4-H club, Girl Scouts and other fun activities. I’m very interested in social justice, self-directed learning, children’s rights, feminism, the arts, fantasy and YA lit, Health at Every Size, and generally subverting the dominant paradigm.
