I’m a thirty-something Anna, living in the Houston area of Texas.
I have a husband, two cats, and a house (and sometimes I think the house is the neediest of the lot!). I love cooking, crafting of all sorts, writing, reading, and all kinds of other things. I play in the SCA – and I also play the piano, and I’m learning how to sing. I play D&D (3.5, Pathfinder, 4E, 5E) and World of Warcraft, and I run a study group for an American Druidry tradition called ADF.
I also have a heritable connective tissue disorder (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome – Hypermobility) and PTSD/Bipolar/GAD. I am being treated for all of these things, and have an excellent team helping me manage them.
