Born in Idaho in 1969, I grew up in South Carolina. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a B.S.C.S. in computer science in 1991 and an M.S. in 1993.
Since then I've worked a variety of computer jobs, usually having something to do with Unix / Linux, though there have been occasional forays into Windows development.
I've got a lot of dogs. Partly this is a side effect of working with a dog rescue, partly it's because I have bad judgement. No one sets out to become the crazy cat lady, you just sort of slide into it gradually. My personal record is, I think, twelve dogs in house at one time. That only lasted a few weeks, thank God. Currently the in-house dog population stands in single digits.
For fun I read, of course, and watch a lot of movies. I also like cooking and woodwork. I'm not very musical, but I do a ton of audiobooks. If you want to talk books / movies / whatever, feel free to contact me via any of the links on the contact page.
Clicking the icons below to go to my social media pages. Note that you will not automatically be subscribed. I'm on Twitter pretty much daily. For longer stuff, I do respond to questions on Goodreads (though it may take a while).
My 2017 New Year's Resolution was to stop using FB. If you've pinged me there and I haven't responded, that's why. (Sorry). I'll probably come back at some point, but meanwhile Twitter / Goodreads / email is a better bet.
I love goodreads, and use it pretty much daily. There's also some author FAQ type information up there.
Twitter: the medium of choice for disseminating good one-liners. If I ever think of anything funny to say, I will say it here.
Email is fine too, but depending on workload I may take a while to get back to you.
