I’m a scientific editor with a Ph.D. in ecology, and I have two children, one dog, and three cats. The number of children is permanent, but the other numbers change…we tend to acquire old strays. I’ve lived in seven different states and four U.S. time zones, and I’ve traveled extensively in Norway, England, Tanzania, Peru, and Chile. I’m also a compulsive reader, slow runner, DIY old house fixer (a 1918 Craftsman), and I grow more houseplants than I need.
