At the moment, Cheyenne, WY, but it changes often.
Date of Birth:
Trying to be a biologist, but the economy is against me!
Reading, writing, camping, hiking, martial arts, conservation, environmental politics, and various odds and ends
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
Are two firsts possible? One of them was when I was 5. I was in a coma in the hospital, and Dad read it to me. To this day I cannot pinpoint the first time I heard about hobbits.
Dad read it outloud again when I was 11. My youngest sister was going through lots of eye surgeries, and Dad read it to us for the hope factor.
Favorite Tolkien character:
Eowyn, of course! I sometimes get to feeling like I don't matter, particularly when job hunting, but I pick up and soldier on. I have a rather overdeveloped sense of justice, and am happy to pick up a sword or a pen for a cause I believe in!
