Stuff about the Geeky Witch

My name's Melissa, but I usually go by Mel. I was born in January of '75. I grew up in Montana, and now live in Massachusetts. I'm in a wonderful relationship with a man named Erich, and am owned by two cats who always keep me on my toes.

I'm Pagan by faith-- eclectic with some Wiccan tendencies, but nothing specific. I often talk about spiritual things in my journal, and welcome those who genuinely want to discuss what inspires them religiously (translation= not "witnessing" or conversions... just sharings of what makes life joyous and peaceful through faith).

I'm an avid writer-- in my journal, as a professional freelancer, and as a hopeful future novelist. I enjoy writing to penpals worldwide, reading, listening to music, exploring little towns here in New England, playing RPG's such as Dungeons & Dragons (and other d20 products), Renaissance Faires, anime, cross-stitching, and whatever else comes to mind.<p>

My favorite music:

comments: I began listening to U2 when Joshua Tree first came out. I love their 80's stuff. Newer stuff is still growing on me. :)
Billy Joel
comments: A must have for long road trips. Or while sipping an ice tea on a cool afternoon. Put on "New York State of Mind" and try it. Honest.
comments: I use their music a lot when I either meditate or do ritual. Since each album begins and ends with the same overtone notes, it's great to just put them back to back in the CD changer
Lorenna McKennitt
comments: The most incredible combination of instruments and styles from all over the world. Beautiful stuff.
Marc Cohn
comments: Something about his music just is simple and honest. Lots of memories of childhood and my teenage years come back to me when I listen to his first album (self-titled).

My favorite movies:

My favorite authors:

Rosemary Edghill
comments: I picked up the second of her Bast trilogy on a whim, and was immediately hooked. Pagan mystery novels. Gotta love 'em!
Nora Roberts
comments: Guilty smut treasures. I normally hate romance novels. Hers interest me, though. :)
R. A. Salvatore
comments: Because I'm a geek. It's a necessity, despite my boyfriend's somewhat jealous joking that he's a "hack."
comments: No one writes poetry better than the Bard. It's tough to translate sometimes, but his writing is pure beauty.
Stephen King
comments: Although I can't read everything he's written, I respect him tremendously as an author. Like me, he seems to need to write. Only he's much more prolific than I am.
