I'm a fiction writer who also really, really likes to knit/garden/sing/bake/feed birds/wave jump in Lake Michigan/throw marshmallows straight into the fire and watch them boil over. I do not really, really like to clean/fold laundry/sift rocks out of my dirt/debone fish/drive in the city. But then, who does, eh?
I hail (Yes!) from Michigan (Go Blue!) and live with my husband and two kids just outside Chicago. It really is as windy here as they say.
