My home base is in Virginia. I'm a seasonal guide with the National Park Service, and I'm never quite sure where I'll end up. Formally educated in biology, I love science junk (especially genetics and ecology), intelligent humor, classic sitcoms, 80's adventure movies, and some anime.
I've written mystery-adventures since I was ten years old. I read Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie. I am captivated by all stories/TV/movies involving detectives, heists, spies, and complex character dynamics. I am obsessed with Lupin III and Detective Conan. That is the inspiration for my comic “Used Books.” (Along with my very interesting former roommates, who are often stranger than fiction.)
