I am a dancer, dance teacher, writer, researcher, bibliophile, former banker, and former nurse. When not dancing or teaching dance, you can usually find me at the library, at the bookstore, at garage sales (searching for books of course), and anywhere else you can find books cheap.

I am a firm believer in having a side business or what Robert Allen calls "An ace in the hole." But, it was not a desire for extra money that led me to start teaching Egyptian style belly dance; it was the love of the art form. And, ok, the shiny costumes.

I've recently lost 40 pounds following a strict program and I did it while...um...broke. I love discussing diet, nutrition, and weight related issues.

I dance under the name Zerlina. I write under the name Celticmelody.

I look forward to adding, hopefully, helpful information to HubPages.
