MisCon 32 Attending Professional
Iíve never been a big fan of talking about myself, but if you really want to know, here are some random tidbits about me:
Iím a California girl now braving the cold winters in Montana.
I am a molecular anthropologist. Translation: I sequence dead peopleís DNA.
Iíve been writing since I was 11 years old. Itís my hobby, my passion, and Iím so happy to get to share my work!
My other passion is teaching. Thereís nothing more fun than getting a classroom of college kids fired up about anthropology! This is probably a good thing, since my day job requires me to teach at the local university.
If I could have a super-power, it would totally be flying. Which is a little strange, because Iím terrified of heights.
I am represented by the awesome Cristi Marchetti of Firebrand Literary, who shares my passion for great books and anthropology.
