I was born in New England (in a town called Worcester which, naturally, is pronounced "Woo-stah"), but I have spent most of my life in the great Pacific Northwest (though both equally feel like "home"). I have a Bachelor's and a Master's in Literature, and I am currently working on my second Master's in Library and Information Science. I love to read and write (obviously), along with watch movies, consume insane amounts of tea and/or coffee, travel, hike, drink beer (stouts only, please), and get in heated political debates via Facebook. I am also a proud agnostic Jew who just wants to be Wonder Woman when I grow up (don't we all?).
