I have two cats. You can read about them on my blog

My Interests

I love sports - the only fan in my family I'm afraid. My favorite teams are:

  • Seattle Mariners - I love to visit Safeco Field and to listen to games on the radio.
  • Portland Trailblazers
  • Oregon Ducks
  • Oregon State Beavers (unless they are playing the ducks!) - I enjoy their play by play guy, Mike Parker, more than any other radio sportscaster.

Crafts take up a lot of my time as well. One of my favorite ways to spend a summer evening is listening to a Mariners game on the deck while knitting.

I also really enjoy reading mysteries, especially with female protagonists.
