Allow Me to Introduce Myself

Postby Rowan_Fair-Hair » Sat August 30th, 2008, 8:04 pm

Greetings, one and all! Please allow me to introduce myself :). My nom d'plume is Rowan Angell. I am a Cultural Anthropologist and Folklorist by vocation, but my avocation is that of a writer and poet. I would love to have that as my sole occupation, but as many of you know, that doesn't always pay the bills :( .I live in rural Misery (OOPS, I meant Missouri). At present I am trying to finish at least one more chapter in a novel I am writing about a kindred of Pagans in Wessex, England during the reign of King AElfred the Great. I have been working on it for nearly 7 years, a little at a time. Health matters have kept me somewhat limited as to how long I can work on any given thing at any given time, but I am a born fighter, and usually find a way to work around my limitations.

I am looking forward to a long and profitable interaction. :cool:

Hi RFH! I'm going to have to really pay attention now b/c your s/n is very similar to Rowan's (formerly Lady Sorbus) :P

ohhh Pagans. Interesting!

I'm a rural girl myself :) In fact I just built a fence today to keep fornicators out of my cornfield!
