If it did, then I apologise also and plead a dodgy brain. :) It's a
good idea, I think. Here goes.
Name: Hallie (Oh yes, I'm female. Not everyone needs to specify,
but people have been confused by my name in the past!)
Living in: Dublin.
Age: 44 (not for long now)
What I do when not playing here : "Mature'' student - sometimes the
mature seems a bit dubious. Doing a degree in English Lit. through
the Open University - all the list's fault (with a bit of blame going
to DWJ, of course).
Offspring (human variety): 2. Becca - aged 16, sometimes list member
in her own right, and Cara - aged 13.
Offspring (four-legged): 1 neurotic mutt, named Belvane, answers to
Bell (also to 'treat', 'breakfast', 'look' etc.).
First DWJ/when: Lives of Christopher Chant. Found it in the
library, about 6 or 7 years ago.
Favourite DWJ (Why am I doing this to myself?!): Fire and Hemlock,
Deep Secret, Howl.
Least favourite DWJ (Why not? We've had interesting discussions
about the ones we don't like too.) Sudden Wild Magic - though it
might change if I ever get around to a reread, and Power of Three -
Other authors/books (in no particular order, and bound to have
forgotten plenty): Lois McMaster Bujold, Martha Wells, Emma Bull,
Connie Willis, Jane Austen, Megan Turner Whelan, Middlemarch and The
Music: Mostly trad/folk; Altan, Pentangle, Deanta, The Tannahill
Weavers, also Sarah McLachlan, U2 and miscellaneous.
Currently reading: The Family Tree, Sheri Tepper. (Thanks to Anna!)
Did I forget anything vital? We usually collect questions as we go
along, so people will hopefully add more.
