Website:Where to buy my book!
I have a husband and two kids, a stable job as a teacher in a place where that isn't an admission of abject poverty, and one published novel. I knit and crochet and will probably get around to trying other yarny crafts at some point. I play table-top role-playing games and Civilization IV, and Settlers of Catan in as many incarnations as I can afford to purchase. I read, less than I used to or would like to but more than many people. I'm a recent Unitarian Universalist with a Christian background and many Christian leanings still. I sing. I play piano. I enjoy my daughters and their pronouncements and their intelligence. I plan to take a Master's in education at some point soon. My favourite subject to teach at the moment is math, and I talk about it a lot.

Most of my journal is currently friends-locked, for various reasons. If you wish to actually get to know me via LJ, you'll need to be on my friends list. I friend people with whom I have something in common, but I usually need some kind of reference first if someone friends me - that is, I prefer if someone who is already on my list recommends new people to me. This is nothing personal; it's more a matter of once-bitten, twice-shy.

PoACs are Posts of Actual Content; these are the posts most likely to express a clear, well-thought-out point of view, and they are almost always public. The term was coined by the friend formerly known as jinzi.

For a link to a site where you can buy my book, see below. That is also the place where you go to review and rate it, after reading it. Drop me a comment and let me know what you thought!

The answer is to question.

Or maybe it's 42.
