What's your favorite food or dish?

Dal...channa masala...broccolli...salad rolls and peanut sauce...actually, I'm really partial to Indian and Thai food. And chocolate.

How old are you?


How long have you been and why are you a vegan or interested in becoming a vegan?

I became a vegan in the past few years, after being lacto-octo vegetarian since the mid 90s. I didn't know how evil the dairy industry is until after I moved here.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I'm first and foremost a writer (fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction), which could be considered spare time. I enjoy meditating, reading and researching, arts and crafts (such as embroidery, beadwork, and costuming), volunteering, and hiking.


I am a writer who has lived in Portland since 2008 and became vegan after moving here. I recently self-published my travel memoir, Every Day is Magical (­­...­). My novella Witch’s Familiar is part of the Wormhole Electric Anthology.
