I live between a bunch of volcanoes in Auckland, New Zealand. I do basically nothing with either of my university degrees. I love cooking, eating, snowboarding, netballing, and thinking about having a dog. I used to sell sex toys. That was cool fun, then I went overseas for a few years, then I came home and turned into a teacher, but that was beyond stupid, so now I work part time and write part time (including for a blog about NZ politics). I am a books & board & word games fan. I have rage-flipped many a Monopoly board but I just might kick a few asses at Boggle.
