Author has written 5 stories for Voltron, and Supernatural.
I'm 43. Right now I stay home with three very wacky kids (9, 10 and 11) who pretty much do their own thing. I used to teach history on the college level. My speciality was Military History (specifically early modern warfare) but I am proficient in all areas up to and including WWII. For most of my life I have lived in NYC. We spend a lot of time doing things around the city from museums, shows, restaurants and occassionally participate in National Pillow Fight Day.
A daughter loves anime and dragged me into her own little Voltron Universe. Her drem is that I write Allura a story involving a cat. Hasn't happened yet. We have all the figurines, robeasts the Castle of Lions, Coffins of Doom and several Drule attack ships. My personal favorite is the Skull Tank - everyone should own one. Forming Voltron at lunchtime makes her very popular with the 4th grade boys. Allura gets kidnapped alot by Lotor alot and Keith and Allura fool around alot in the Coffins of Doom. I did not appreciate when she beat all my levels on the Volton Iphone game. She has only left me robeasts to kill in the Arena.
My favorite anime of all time is Starblazers. I do not own any Starblazer toys. I also liked Captain Harlock, Space Pirate. I never did find out what was the relationship between those 2 shows. Currently, I am watching the Last Exile now.
I married the nicest guy in the world. My friends think he is a disembodied voice on a speakerphone - but he is real.
If I am very tired or visit my parents (or any of my siblings) for more than 2 hours I break out in a full fledged Bronx accent. I can hide it pretty well except for the words of coffee and dog. My pronouncing my r's correctly was a preconditon for marriage. Sometimes, when my husband is not home, my children beg me to go full on.
I have never successfully cooked an egg in my life. Not a fact that I am proud of but I do find it midly disturbing that a single cell organism has continually bested me.
All 5 of us have S names. It was not planned. Our last name means how are you in Chinese causing great confusion and laughter at Chinese restaurants. Not being Chinese, it took us several years to figure this out.
I am amazed that they put mustard on McDonald hamburgers once you leave the NYC metro area.
I love roller coasters. One complaint about the greatest guy in the world was when I made my quasi religious pilgrimage to Sandusky, Ohio he chickened out and refused to go to Sands Point. After 24 years together I am still madly in love so I tentatively forgive him.
I have a very naughty cat. His name is Heartfelt Jasper of Thunderpaw. He likes to shower with us, we are not so keen on this.
