Joined 4 years ago from Hilo, Hawaii

About me: My name is Tatiana. I am a voracious reader and list-writer. Although I possess a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, my compartmentalized gerbil-on-a-hamster-wheel brain prefers to keep busy doing several things at once. I enjoy all forms of reading and writing (proofreading, essay writing, resume writing, storytelling and screenplays) and am lucky enough to have found outlets that allow me to exercise my creative self doing all of the above while earning a modest income.

My husband, Dan, is a hardcore researcher and walking Encyclopedia. He holds a degree in Archaeology Anthropology and History and is currently pursuing his graduate degree (on way to his Doctorate) in Nautical Archaeology through the University of Hawaii and Bournemouth University in England. Dan is a fellow squirrel-brain and I love it!

Our son, E, whom we homeschool is positively brilliant. I know everyone says that, but really, he is; he finished the Spiderwick Chronicles series when he was 4 (I feel compelled to point out that he started them in his late-3's:) and regularly reads Crichton in a 48 hour period. He has introduced me to the wonderful world of digital animation, gaming and geekery. Truly exceptional.

17 months ago we welcomed the newest addition to our pack, R. He is (hooray!) an avid reader, just like the rest of us, and positively loves terrorizing his much-too-patient older brother. Watching him learn and grow has become our new favorite thing to do.

We have 3 dogs, all rescued mutts (except our third one; he's a pure-bred Boxer who decided he wanted to adopt us when he showed up on our doorstep one day and never left), and enjoy ocean sports, fishing, farming, cooking, and finding ways to live creatively while leaving the tiniest footprint possible.

That about sums it up. I can finally cross "START HUB" off my list. Now, what to write about...
