I am a bisexual, polyamorous, dominant female. I'm a parent. I'm kinky. I live in and head a leather household. I'm out. I'm a voracious reader. I write short stories and poetry. I am interested in useful plants (shampoo ginger, loofah, gourds, soapnuts) and in acquiring seedlings or seeds. I have ducks and chickens, and plan to install edible landscaping after I finish working on my fixer-upper house. I own and manage rental property. I was a first responder for 13 years. My daughter has attempted suicide multiple times, and struggles with mental illness. I foster animals for the local animal shelter - everything from bottle baby kittens on up. I'm honest and blunt. I'm struggling to find a new purpose in life that fulfills me as much as my previous job did - I'd love to find a creative, challenging outlet with opportunities for travel. I'd love to find someone that will handle my collections!!! I love to cook, and I'm great at it (will cook/bake/supply recipes for trade!), but had vertical sleeve surgery June 2016, so I haven't been able to indulge that hobby as often as I'd like. I make jewelry, leather goods, aromatherapy stuffs, and bath/body products. I've worked as a book reviewer in the past, and have edited several manuscripts for local authors. My preferred genres are urban fantasy, paranormal romance, fantasy, and scifi, but I can and have edited pretty much anything.
