Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I was educated in nursing, but stayed home to raise my children. That
gave me some freedom to pursue various interests which have made me who I am. I
have enjoyed studying homeopathy, art and interior design, all informally.
These things have made life enjoyable, each in their own way. I enjoyed period
books and movies since I first opened Charles Dickens in school.
