Author has written 2 stories for Dragon's Bait.
I'm Alice, not the girl passively watching the world drift by, but the woman who creates her own worlds. I meet characters in the oddest places. Molly, for instance, introduced herself to me during a sign language class. She passed me a paper stained with coffee rings whereupon I read her spidery handwriting: "I've been silenced by a curse, I'm learning to find my voice through Sign." Molly's not from a movie or book, but from me, so you won't meet her here. Sometimes I like to visit Wonderland or Bizenghast, and that's where you're most likely to find me on this site.
When I'm not spinning universes of my own creation, or reading about others, I retreat to my kitchen kingdom. There, I craft gourmet meals on whim. I'm partial to not following recipes and designing new treats (though this has backfired once or twice). My kitchen is a dedicated gluten-free bakery and vegetarian cafe. Tea is served 24-7 because, honestly, tea will save the world.
During the fall and spring, I live the life of a college student: hurrying to class, taking notes, and joining study groups that have no intention of studying. In the summer and winter months, I'm a Jill-of-all-trades. I've done tiling, filing, and most recently, cutting fabric. Last winter I started teaching myself tarot. By next, I might be able to offer card readings as one of my trades.
I hope you enjoyed the miniature tour through my mind. Feel free to message me about anything. And I mean "anything" as in the kind of anything spanning literature to rare fungi to that really weird dream from Monday.
