I was born in Portugal during the Cuban Missile Crisis. To make my life more interesting, I was born severely premature, at the height of winter in an unheated stone house. I survived.
I'm glad to report that I'm still surviving.
I'm now living in Colorado with one husband, two children and four cats. Would like dogs but can't afford to adopt eight of them. I write science fiction and fantasy for a living -- see above where I clearly like to keep things interesting.
