I’m a stay-at-home mother to my two and a half cats. I garden, read, and waste a hell of a lot of time on the interbutts. My favorite writers are E.B. White, Alice Munro, James Salter, Cormac McCarthy, and David Foster Wallace (despair!). I spend almost all of my time in my own company or in chat with a menagerie of international co-conspirators. Hence, I know how to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius and occasionally use the odd British slang or spelling. Deal with it.
