When not writing deeply-researched historical-fantasy novels set in the Dark Ages, I read in many genres, work logic puzzles, draw caricatures, support my local branch of the SCA (a medieval reenactment society), ply the ancient crafts of tablet-weaving and sprang netting, sew Halloween costumes for my grandchildren and period garb for myself, translate Norwegian folk songs into English, and practice on my Celtic harp, fipple flute (recorder), sheepbone flute, and langeleik (mountain dulcimer).  

Here on Wattpad I post flash fiction in any genre, most recently in dramatized history.
