I grew up on a farm outside of Corpus Christi, went to school at the University of Texas at Austin and have lived in Austin off and on ever since. I also got married to a Swiss man in the mid 80s and lived in Switzerland for almost six years. We got divorced after moving back to the States, and I lived in India for a year at a school that puts the child's feelings first and foremost. I have curly hair and a loud laugh. Otherwise, I'm pretty quiet.
