Who is this Diane, and why should I read her Web page?

Gee, why are you here if you don't already know me? ;-)

Well, let's see... I live in Wisconsin with my two cats, in a 100+ year old house, and work for the state bureaucracy. I collect pewter gryphons (and other kinds), am politically and personally independent, have opinions on all sorts of things, and usually am more than happy to tell you what they are. :)

What, you want to know what I look like? Well, OK, here's a picture, but it really doesn't do me justice. :-}

My little gremlin (who's peeking over the line at you) tells me that you are visitor number

Things I Like To Do

I'm a fan of various TV shows (past and present) that have Web pages, including Remington Steele, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Forever Knight and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

One of my numerous and ever-changing hobbies is fiction writing. I've collected all my fanfic on a webpage. If you read any of the stories there, please take a minute to give me some feedback. I'd really appreciate it.

I'm also a voracious reader of good fiction. My current favorite authors are Dorothy Sayers, Lois McMaster Bujold, Jane Austen and Tony Hillerman

I also make historical, fantasy, and science-fiction costumes. I don't have my Costumer's Page up yet, but you can check out the costumed dolls I made for a charity auction while you wait for me to put it together.

And, like most people I know, I love good food. I've just finished working on Ma Kosti's Cookbook, a recipe collection by the members of the Lois McMaster Bujold mailing list. It has a nice variety of recipes, and we're adding more all the time.

I've also got a links page. It hasn't been updated in a while, but I'll get to it soon, I promise!

Any comments on this page welcome, especially if you like it! :) You can send me e-mail if you like.
