I'm an unrepentant geek who lives in Atlanta, Georgia with my husband, David, and five cats: Saffire, Lazuli, Fariq, Jaffa, and Chalav; David's big marine aquarium with a radiata lion fish, a tang, a few squirrel fish, and a big bat fish; and my own little marine aquarium with clown fish and shrimp and corals. I love stories of all kinds, and get them through reading, movies, theater, and music. I enjoy science fiction, fantasy, horror, mysteries, and fairytales. I also enjoy roleplaying games, both tabletop and LARP.

By profession I'm a health researcher, and also a caregiver to family members. We lost my brother Paul to a rare genetic anemia (X-linked Sideroblatic Anemia) on 7/20/2008 and my mother to lung cancer on 1/3/2015. My life has been very much affected by their illnesses as well as my own career in public health.

My journal is Friends Only but please feel free to comment if you want to be included-- I'm pretty easy about adding people to my friend's list. I periodically trim my friend's list and remove people who have not posted in a long time, who have friends only journals on which I am not included, or who include mostly memes. You're welcome to ask to be included again on my friends list if I removed you. People tell me that the number of people and initials in my journal confuse them. Fair enough-- you can find out who's who in the dramatis personae memory that I will update periodically. I do have contact information provided privately at the beginning of this journal that could be accessed by LJ staff in case of an emergency. (My bio was last updated on 04/07/17; Dramatis personae memory last updated 04/13/07.)

Drop me a line if you like-- I'm glad to meet you!
