Who I Was (2010)

That’s not exactly a clever page name but – it delivers what it promises.

Right, so now starts the familiar quagmire of “what to write”. Last time I ended up with a diatribe, which you will find on the pages outline to the right instead of proudly displayed at the top. ๐Ÿ™‚ Njoy!

I’m an expatriate, to begin with the current name of this blog (Feb. 2010, in case it has changed by the time you read this). I’m a California girl who will always love California and, if I hadn’t been born there, could probably have been very happy there. But I have never found a city that was more than city. Until now. (Again, mark this down, in case something abruptly changes.) When I lived abroad before, it was in North Wales (Great Britain) and it wasn’t for the long haul. I’ve wanted to live in a francophone country but made the compromise of staying on the North American continent rather than tear out the hearts of my child-god’s grandparents again. So here we are in the city I considered first during my freshman year of college (2000) and it does not disappoint. I think my skin may actually NOT peel off of me if I try to stay! (As long as there’s still lots of travel…)

Anyway, I’m a writer, mostly of literary fiction, currently pursuing representation. I have finally caved and posted excerpts of a few projects, which can be found on the page runner at the top right – where you found About – or under the Pages header to the right. I could talk about this indefinitely…just not to the ether.

I’m a follower of Christ and a wife and a mommy and a sister and an aunt and a friend and a Pepsi drinker and a snack eater and a music obsesser-over-er and a doggy mommy and an observer and a snark and an eyebrow raiser and an exhorter and a visual-aid-making-planner and my rump hurts from sitting with my laptop for so long.
