About Me Reclusive thirty-something. Married for ten years now to an honest-to-God Prince Charming. Mischievous Christian. Vegetarian with vegan aspirations. Fond of black lace. Holds a BA in Religion and a Gourmet Raw Foods Chef and Instructor Certification. Has worked in education, special education, youth ministry, and children's ministry over the past eleven years. Reads books like Cookie Monster eats cookies. Writer, artist, and musician. Adores Lewis Carroll's Alice in all her various incarnations. Also loves L. Frank Baum's Dorothy Gale. Alice, however, best suits overall mood and interests at present: world just gets curiouser and curiouser every day.
