I've been a freelance business/technical writer since 1987 -- one of my passions is explaining complex concepts in clear language.

Other things I enjoy are the science fiction novels of Iain M. Banks, libraries and reading, 99% chocolate, weightlifting, "The Big Bang Theory," sprinting, cross-country skiing, and (a new interest) rock climbing.

I moved to northern British Columbia, Canada, with my family "just for two years" in 1994. My husband and I are still here, and are so glad we came -- we love the friendliness, the brisk climate, the winter sports, and the wilderness at our doorstep.
