Walking in the woods with my pup, kayaking, reading good books and listening to music that stirs my soul are my passions in life. Actually my idea of a good day kayaking is parking myself in a sunny spot on a pond, hanging my legs over the side of the kayak and opening a book! I love to read fiction, biography and memoirs with a smattering of history and true adventure thrown in the mix. I love all kinds of music as long as it lights a fire in my soul and makes me want to sing!

I'm a mother, rabid online gamer, bellydancer, Appalachian Trail thru-hiker and voracious reader. I don't have television reception or know how to "tweet". My mother read me Poe at bedtime when I was little which has instilled in me a life long love of all things morbid and disturbing.
