I am 49 years old, born and raised in Kentucky, where I still live. I teach mathematics at the local community college, and am happily married with a daughter and four cats. I am interested in science fiction, fantasy, non-fiction, languages and linguistics, philosophy, religion, science, and many other things. My hobbies are reading, writing, blogging, and gardening (when I have the energy for it!). My blog is at turmarion.wordpress.com.
