I am delighted by the odd. It probably can be traced back to my mom who collects dead birds to photograph and considers Edward Gorey a favorite illustrator.
Despite a natural propensity towards squeamishness, I am fascinated by the human body, death, and nature. With a degree in history and an obsession for research, a book on the early history of American medicine is all too appropriate. “Bleed, Blister, Puke, and Purge” is the cohesion of my love for truth that is stranger than fiction, history, and teen books.
I live in the Seattle area with my family and animal farm, 2 dogs, a cat, 2 chickens, and a horse.
