Cast Of Characters - 2013

Friday, Dec. 20, 2013 - 8:00 p.m.

Here's my Cast of Characters page, last updated in the year 2013.

Picture of BrinHere's me, in April of 2013. I was on vacation in Australia when this was taken. I live in San Francisco with my husband John and a metric assload of stuffed animals. Mostly bunny rabbits, but the occasional teddy bear does sneak in. I've been on Diaryland since the spring of 2003, I've made wonderful friends as a result, and as of this writing, one of my favorite bands is Keane.

Hopes And FearsThis is Hopes and Fears, the first album by Keane. I run the Keane diaryring here on Diaryland, and I am a collector of Keane memorabilia. I've seen this group in concert numerous times, and my most recent piece of Keane schwag is Hopes And Fears on vinyl.

Jamie LordHere's Jamie Lord. Jamie is the best friend I've ever had that I've yet to meet in person. If he hadn't entered my life when he did, I don't know if I would still be on this side of the dirt. Jamie, Olive Juice.:)

Paul KiddPaul Kidd is a hard working and deeply cracked author currently working from Perth, Western Australia. He particularly delights in Fantasy, Historical and Science fiction.

In addition to his prolific work as a writer of novels, Paul also creates role playing games, RPG supplements, comics and games. His major efforts over the past decade have been focused on screenwriting.

He owns an awful lot of lead soldiers, and has far more kilts than he has trousers.

AustraliaThis is Australia. I travel here frequently and spend time on the west coast.

DepressionAnd here's my clinical depression. I deal with this a lot more than I mention, but it's always part of my day.
