Living and writing in southeast Michigan. Married, no kids, one cat.

I'm the youngest of 4, born and raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I met dionysus1999 in college and we started living in sin together 4 months after we started dating. We have been together 18 years total, married for 14.

Education: I went to a Christian liberal arts college in Tenn. my freshman year, then transferred to a state college in Michigan. Double-majored in Philosophy and English (concentration creative writing), and almost had enough credits for a minor in religion.

Spirituality: Fundamentalist Christian in my youth, Wiccan in my 20s, now atheist.

Politics: I'm a left-leaning libertarian. The First Amendment means a lot to me, because both church/state separation and freedom of the press/freedom of expression are major issues for me.

Job stuff: Until recently, I worked for a business-to-business publication as a page designer and copy editor three days a week and did freelance writing and editing the rest of the time. As of August 2009, I launched as a full-time freelancer.

I wrote reviews at yelp.com here:


And I have a variety of articles published here:

And here:

Passions: Words, food, health, skepticism.

I help facilitate several LJ communities about non-dieting or HAES and post a lot about size acceptance. Here are some examples:

"How to get respect from your doctor or shrink if you're fat":

"What HAES means to me":

I also post links to size-positive and HAES-related sites and articles, for example:

"How to adapt a yoga practice for larger bodies":

"Weightloss, dieting and other New Year ponderings"

"How's Your Relationship with food?"

"My current thoughts on size acceptance"
