Well, this is my new blog.

I don't really like to write about myself, so this introduction will be brief.

To start with, I am southern-born and bred: from Florida to Texas to Alabama to Tennessee (and now in Georgia). I work as a technical writer for a company that provides software for banks; our particular product is aimed at community banks. It's my job to write user guides and supporting documentation for the software.

I am the youngest child of three: I have two older sisters. Between them, they have five kids and 3 grand kids (with twins on the way).

As far as my interests go: I enjoy reading just about anything I can, from Shakespeare to Stephen King. Mostly, though, I like fantasy. Among my favorites are  The Lord of the Rings, The Eddings' Belgariad and Mallorean, Peter V. Brett's Demon Cycle series, and Brent Weeks' Night Angel trilogy.

I love to watch movies and TV. Of course, I'm a Star Trek fan (but not a rabid Trekkie). I regularly watch Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, Orphan Black, and Doctor Who, among other shows, although lately I haven't invested much time in TV. I like the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and am pretty excited about the new Star Wars franchise.

I'm also a regular player of Lord of the Rings Online MMO. I play an elf Lore-Master and a Beorning. I've tried other games, including Rift and Star Wars: The Old Republic, but none have really held my interest for long.
