Wife, Mother, Engineer, Writer, Runner, Knitter, Nerd. I wear many metaphorical hats.
I live in Calgary, Canada with my handsomer half, Mark, our son and two cats.
I am a Creative Engineer. In addition to my “day job” as a project engineer at a local engineering firm, I have a “heart job” where I, as Neil Gaiman calls it, ‘make things up and write them down’ (I’m not as good as he is, but I am practicing). I also run (enthusiastically), knit (occasionally), and travel (I have a bucket list longer than my arm). Every November I work with two friends to plan NaNoWriMo events in Calgary, which makes for a rather crazy month.
I am a discerning nerd and an unabashed fangirl. Fandoms of interest include Star Wars, Harry Potter, Zombies Run, Firefly, Sherlock, Doctor Who, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Authors that I enjoy include David and Leigh Eddings, Naomi Alderman, JK Rowling, Neil Gaiman, Michael Crichton, and David Weber, among many others.
