I’m someone in love with the
English language...well, any language for that matter. How did we decided to use words, intonation, structures to
communicate? Does our language come from
our culture or does our culture come from our language?
I love to drive people nuts with questions like this.
I have a background in
Linguistics and Inter-Cultural Communication, but these days my greatest
passion is writing for young readers. Some Very Messy Medieval Magic is
the third book in the time-travel adventures of Pete and Weasel, with Alligators
Overhead and The Great TimeLock Disaster being the first two. Sign
of the Green Dragon, another book for young readers, jumps into ancient
Chinese dragon myths and a quest for treasure.
My young adult novels are Sliding
on the Edge, The Princess of Las Pulgas, Double Negative, and Sudden Secrets. When
I’m not writing I’m hiking or traveling
or practicing yoga or asking a lot questions about things I still don’t
understand--like what is language anyway?
