About this author

I've never been a big fan of talking about myself, but if you really want to know, here are some random tidbits about me:

>I'm a California girl. This generally means I talk too fast and use "like" a lot.

>I have my doctorate in molecular anthropology. Translation: I sequence dead people's DNA and spend a whole lot of time in a lab, which I love.

>I've been writing since I was 11 years old. It's my hobby, my passion, and I'm so happy to get to share my work!

>My other passion is teaching. There's nothing more fun than getting a classroom of college kids fired up about anthropology!

>If I could have a super-power, it would totally be flying. Which is a little strange, because I'm terrified of heights.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season! I'm with my family and looking forward to a great few days of celebrating (and probably *way* too much food, but that's the holidays for you!). I hope you have a great season and my best wishes to everyone who makes this blog so much fun for me to write!

I did want to mention one more little thing: Colors Like Memories is currently free on A... Read more of this blog post »
