I'm not ready to tell you a lot about me, except that I like to talk (write).

I've always lived in the Northeast (Connecticut, New York). Have one brother, one sister, both younger. Married since 1968; two daughters, one son. Unmarried Daughter lives with us, Married Daughter and Son-in-Law live a couple thousand miles away. Son, Daughter-in-Law and remarkable granddaughters live a couple hours away by train. Worked more than 45 years, now retired.

If you want to read my pages, go to http://l-empress.liscious.net, My Updated Page, which seems to work a little better for me. Seems as if D'land won't let me imbed a link here. It figures.

My favorite authors:

Madeline L'Engle
comments: Great for kids, wonderful to reread. And her biography was sensational -- without being "sensational." Try her adult novels too.
Elizabeth Peters
comments: Taught me more about ancient Egypt than any history course, while I enjoyed her characters.
Anne Perry
comments: Her books teach about the Victorian era -- two different periods -- and make you think about what went on when.
Theodore Sturgeon
comments: A most inventive sci-fi author
Isaac Asimov
comments: Good sci-fi, but interested in so many things that he continually taught me.

update April 6, 2020: Sorry, we just had 8+ hours downtime due to a server problem. Restoring from backups took soooo long, but everything is back and no data was lost. Ay yay yay! Anyhow, hope everyone is well with the virus stuff.
