Born in Texas and ‘brought up’, as they say, in Alabama in a family that’s been in the South for generations. There’s no doubt I was raised to be a ‘Southern Belle’. That’s not all bad; but that’s also not all me.

When I was in my 20s, I moved to London, and I knew I had come home. THIS was me – crazy, hard, chaotic, and utterly, utterly accepting. This is where I became me.

And, now. . . .

Now, I’m me, but in a sort of hybrid locale.

A little bit Southern, a little bit London, a little bit Snowdonia. All me.

For my sins, I have resolved to write the story of me.

And, I’m doing that, bit by bit.
