~ I sometimes go by the nicknames “Butterscotch Bubbles” and/or “Pandora,” neither of which I picked myself, but somehow picked up along my life, and they seemed to stick…long stories- and yes, there are stories, but aren’t there always??
~ I have a deep love of cultures and languages, and have studied Latin, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Japanese, Korean, and ASL. I’ve been fluent/able to communicate in each of those languages at some point in my life.
~ I consider myself an experienced writer, having taught a writing class, written for both a newspaper and a literary magazine, as well as participating in several writers groups.

~Jane Austen Heroine Character Quiz~
“You are Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! You are intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. You have a good head on your shoulders, and oftentimes find yourself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of ridiculousness. You take great pleasure in many things. You are proficient in nearly all of them, though you will never own it. Lest you seem too perfect, you have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves you very ill indeed.”
