Ivory: Your beautiful, charming, brilliant, modest author. I was born in the early 80’s, so I remember Popples, but never voted for Reagan. I come from a long line of gypsies, and moved more than I stayed until the age of 16, when I decided that Washington state was as good a place as any to put down roots. I’ve been here ever since, though I have still yet to live in a house longer than a year and a half. For now, I am a stay at home mom to three stinky little girls, though in my day I have been a library assistant, an audiovisual tech, a professional quilter, a waitress (x2963), a baker, a delivery truck driver, a sports director, a barista, a snack bar slave, and a scholarship administrator. Of all of these, changing diapers is the most rewarding.
Tom: The guy I suckered into loving me. He has only lived in three houses in his entire life, and they were all within the same city limits. Continually torn between paying our mortgage and going back to school to get another degree in “Sounding smart when discussing Shakespeare.” Refuses to eat: squash, tomatoes, onions, green peppers and eggplant.
Elinor: Commonly known as Ella the Loud, Ella the Cuddly, and Ella the Impossible to Keep Dressed. Named after a character in a Jane Austen novel. Probably the happiest surprise of my life.
Rebecca Joy: Also answers to Becky, Bunny, Baby and Iloveyouasmuchasthewholewideworld! She completes our trifecta bet, and has made us rich rich rich.
