Location: Columbia, SC
I am a graduate student at the University of South Carolina, studying children's literature. I aim to be the next Lemony Snickett, Philip Pullman, and L. Frank Baum all rolled into one.
I believe in equal rights for all people, that the Second Amendment to the US Constitution means what it means, and that the healthiest economies contain a dynamic balance between free enterprise and state regulation. I love America, red meat, cats, and science fiction. I hate the car culture, broccoli, and loud dogs.
I am straight, kinky, and single. I have a deep and personal spirituality, believe that Evolution by Natural Selection is a natural law--not just a theory, maintain membership in good standing in the (pro-Robinsonian) Episcopal Church, but rarely attend services more than twice a year.
I have a tattoo on each bicep, a crane on the left and an apple on the right.
