I’m a mixed-breed smart-ass writer and artist living with my two grown boomerang kids, two cats, two ferrets, my imaginary friends, and a diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder I. I believe in the Harvard Comma, that America will eventually prevail over the United States, and that my kids will move out someday, leaving my cat behind.
I got my BS in Art at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, my PhD in English at Harvard University, and am terrified that through some untoward chain of events I may end up in school for something again. I write science fiction (search e-retailers under Idony Lisle), and make visual art from time to time. I also sing in my church choir. It’s a top-notch choir, but I’m middle-notch. Luckily, I’m not very loud.
I’ve been homeless twice, which taught me that politics do, actually, matter.
Poor, honest, smart, and nifty.
