I live in Northern Virginia with my football-crazed husband, two beautiful daughters, and two psychotic Shih Tzus. I teach courses in international relations for the American Military University. I also work as a reading teacher at my daughters’ elementary school. What can I say? I still enjoy school!
I love unicorns, dragons, kelpies, leprechauns, and fairies. I suspect that’s the Irish in me. The Irish aren’t afraid to believe in magical things. More than anything, I’d like to adopt a dragon. Unfortunately, I haven’t found an animal shelter brave enough to house them. You should see the looks I get when I ask. I don’t understand. It’s not like this would be difficult. You just need a good sprinkler system, fire-resistant suits, and maybe an obedience class or two… for the humans, not the dragons, of course.
I love meeting new people; exploring magical places; and all the sticky predicaments, adventures, and emotions sparked by books. Reading and writing are two of my favorite things. I haven’t a clue what’s going on around me when I’m writing. The house could be burning down, and I wouldn’t even notice. I’m counting on my husband to save the children and the dogs. If we had a dragon, he could save us all.
Thanks for reading Saving Tír
Love and hugs,
