Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?

I’ve been blogging forever.  I started at this site in 2005.  I always say that I started blogging because I couldn’t get a word in edgewise with my ex-husband.

Where in the world are you blogging from? Tell a random fact or something special about your current location. Feel free to share pictures.

I’ve been in Akron OH for a year and a half now.  I was horrified when I found out we were moving here but it is really quite lovely.  (I realized when I wrote that it is seems like Wesley’s description of the Fire Swamp and if you understand that then I love you.)

Random picture – We went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this weekend.  I have a brand new camera that might just be smarter than me and this is the very first picture taken with it.  I present ZZ Top’s guitars.

What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2013?

I’m currently reading Paris by Edward Rutherford.

If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why?

I still think the only proper answer to this question is the Mad Hatter and the Dormouse.

What literary location would you most like to visit? Why?

I want to go to Bath to visit the setting of all the extremely chaste romance novels that my grandma loved. Or, I’d like to visit the Discworld.
