Born & lived in Philadelphia until 12, then moved to Maple Shade, NJ. Got a job as a tech illustrator before I was out of high school.
Joined the Air Force and was stationed at Charleston AFB, where I met Al Mitchell and got married.
I have a daughter named Holly who now lives in DC.
Lived in France for a year, and then, later in Aspen Hill, Silver Spring, Adelphi, and Greenbelt, MD. Bounced back and forth between the DC area and South Jersey/Philly areas for quite a few years.
Got involved in science fiction conventions (helped put on several) and SF fandom in general and worked on a few SF/horror movies.
I was involved in SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism--recreating the Middle Ages and Renaissance) for a few years, but can't afford it anymore. I still love living in the modern Middle Ages, though.
I have a lot more time for fiberarts now that I'm retired. Mainly, I knit, but also spin, crochet, weave, lucet, etc., etc.
