I was born in 1963 (you do the math!) and am a stay-at-home mom of two. Girl child just turned 15 and boy child will be 12 soon. Husband works for a company that imports food and sometimes brings food home with him I was a teacher, worked for a publisher doing workshops for teachers and field research and lots of other earlier jobs. I live in a semi-rural part of New Jersey – there is a sheep farm half a mile away and a buffalo farm three miles away. I read all the time when I’m not chauffeuring kids around, doing volunteer stuff, noodling around on the computer or making dinner. I like to cook and I despise cleaning.
