I am a writer and teacher married to another teacher/writer. Our adult children--amazing human beings--sometimes travel with us, as well
We have raised four children, and we run a nonprofit that combines live-action roleplay with writing, building a safe community for creative teens. In general, I'm looking for quiet locations to write alone, as well as new opportunities for travel with my husband.
When I'm working on a book I need a peaceful place to focus and write. When I'm traveling with my husband, we look for quiet, relaxing settings, as well as lively locales with new people to meet. We enjoy animals, and homes invested with the beauty and love of their owners.
Both of us frequently take time to travel and write, sometimes while feeding chickens, walking dogs, watering plants and keeping things tidy.
Not only that, but our work with youth often involves using a retreat center or camp, and leaving it spotless and ready for the next group. (But we don't plan on bringing twenty teenagers to your house! Much as we love them, this is our time to get away and recharge.)
We are easy-going and approachable professionals, accustomed to thinking on our feet if necessary.
We are detail-oriented.
We love animals, and very much miss our dog, Tippy, who was with us for sixteen years.
We like a neat and visually pleasing environment. (And why is it so much more fun to clean someone *else's* house?)
Je parle français.
