I'm a 34 year old single mom to a super-fantastic 10 year old girl and 2 stinky rescued pugs. I love writing (fiction), photography, history, politics, reading and being a smarty-pants expert on obscure (mostly nerdy) topics. Bookstores are my kryptonite. I love nachos, shiny things, glitter lip gloss, wii tennis, Thursday night television and high heel shoes. I can solve a Rubik's Cube (In. Your. Face, Mr. Rubik!).
