Self-Describing Quote: 'I never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude.' - Henry David Thoreau
General Bio: Second of five children. Father was language professor, so did a lot of relocating as a kid. BS in Environmental Science, MA in Museum Science. Six years professional experience at various natural-science institutions, incl. Smithsonian and National Park Service. Have lived in North Carolina, Maine, Texas, Florida, Alaska, and several other states. Never married- never met anyone I wanted to.
Have tried bungee-jumping, hang gliding, sky diving, scuba diving and white-water rafting. Once wrestled a 12' Burmese python (not planned.)
Like everyone else here I'd love to write professionally, but that's a hard strata to break into.
