In her life she has worked carving ducks out of wood with a burning tool, doing calligraphy, and as a dishwasher in a dinner theater. She was pulling espresso in Seattle before the rest of the country even knew what it was. She’s been a nanny, cleaned houses, and was a short order cook at the oldest coffeehouse in Seattle during its day, The Last Exit on Brooklyn. She did the grocery store thing, the office supply store thing, the gift shop thing, the deli thing, and was a newspaper reporter for years, and although she never worked in a bookstore, she always wanted to.
She now decorates cakes and colors comic book art, designs all kinds of things, makes amazing bento lunches, misses having chickens in her backyard, and totally and completely loves Doctor Who.
