I spin, knit, and read P.G. Wodehouse, Jane Austen, Anthony Trollope and Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin novels obsessively. Once, this read that I collect nail polish and fountain pen ink, but that's on a possibly-permanent hiatus: I had a massive, near-fatal stroke in late 2014, and I see moving-double. Consequently, one eye is covered; which eye is covered depends on whether I'm reading or just looking around. (Reading: right eye is covered; everything else: left eye is covered.)
I used to be a writer. I wrote science fiction and fantasy, primarily in Victorian worlds though not necessarily steampunk. I was the November 2013 story prompt in Neil Gaiman's "A Calendar of Tales." I have three books at Amazon, as well as several short stories. I may write again; I don't honestly know. I'm retired now.
I live with my husband and two college student daughters in a 130-year-old house in Portland, Oregon. And my name is Lynn.
