Creating a Life
I live on the West Coast. I have never been rich, so I work very long hours. I'm intensely introverted and a very private person, so my few friends are very precious to me. This is my neighbor and her daughter, who model for me, share my love of making things, gardening, and being weird.
Brianne
For most of my life I've wanted to write and create worlds. I knew that to do this I had to learn as much as I could about all the aspects of world building. I was a serious child, and I didn't want to "just make things up." I have spent most of my free time learning. I was a teen-aged runaway, and I couldn't type, so I gradually go into working with numbers. It was twenty years before I got the art education that I wanted, but now, at sixty plus years, I have finished most of my graphic novel series set in Bronze Age Europe. I have tried many careers: costume designer, seamstress, illustrator, writer, teacher, but stayed a bookkeeper because I could make enough to support my art, family, and education.

Here are some links to subjects. Please be aware that most of this learning is from books and personal research. All the the illustrations are mine. Please so read and share, but this information may be controversial, so it is always wise to cite references so you aren't left trying to defend something you may not understand that well. Because there is so much, I had my characters from Anieth author the articles. You may see that on some of the pages.
