Born & raised in San Diego. After a brief stint in California's armpit, moved to Humboldt County in 1992. Jack of all trades, master of none -- or Renaissance woman. Take your pick. I've always been a writer, albeit a lazy one. I've always been an avid reader. This is my second NaNoWriMo. At the local NaNoWriMo meetings, which are GREAT fun, I'm Teri.
