About

I’m a thirty-something Anna, living in the Denton area of Texas.

I’m recently relocated, sharing a house with a witchy co-religionist and way too many cats.  I love cooking, crafting of all sorts, writing, reading, and all kinds of other things. I used to play in the SCA – and I also used to play the piano, but both have mostly fallen by the wayside at this point. I play D&D (3.5, Pathfinder, 4E, 5E) a lot, and I am the senior druid emeritus of Nine Waves Grove – I’m also an ordained priest for an American Druidry tradition called ADF. I am looking into starting a protogrove in my new city, but that’s a work in progress.

I have a heritable connective tissue disorder (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome – hEDS) and PTSD/Bipolar/GAD. I am being treated for all of these things, and have an excellent team helping me manage them.
