I attempt to explain myself

Hi, I live in the grand old land of *redacted* and I’m jolly fond of hazelnuts.

That seems like sufficient introduction.

(Maybe I should put more.)

Okay, I am also jolly fond of G.K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Aleksander Solzhenitsyn. Or, rather, I am jolly fond of their writing. I don’t know them personally. (Though I’d like to know Chesterton personally. Except he’s dead. Am I getting sidetracked?)

So yes, I like to read. If you want to know anything about my family/general life background, you’ll want to check this post. In general, though, I don’t talk about them that much. Except The Dead One. Because he’s dead. Like Chesterton. So he certainly doesn’t care. (and here is the best intro I can give you to him.)

I am also a devout Roman Catholic. When I started this blog, I wasn’t sure how much I’d be talking about that. A year and a half of blogging has shown that I can’t really resist talking about my faith, in one way or the other, non-stop. So you’ll be hearing a lot about Christianity on here. If you don’t like that, I dare you to stick around (just because that is the contrary hooligan I am.) đŸ˜‰

I guess none of this goes to show who I really am, which is a young oil company accountant moonlighting as an amateur ethnomusicologist and a gaslamp writer–and consequently pegging away at writing her novels with dogged (and probably misplaced) determination.

Oh, also, if the phrase ‘amateur ethnomusicologist’ didn’t give it away I listen to, sing, and know a ton of folk music. We’re going to be talking about that a lot–or rather, we shan’t talk, but I shall write, and you shall read, or not read, as the case may be. Either way, God bless us, every one!

Oh, also, also, images on this site come from all over the place and are not mine unless otherwise stated, so tip the wink if an image is yours and you want me to take it down, savvy?

That seems sufficient. Oh wait, also also also, if you wanted to know about the alias, it’s because I kill off a lot of characters. Poor devils. Uh. Yeah. You may call me Grim if it’s less clunky. Tallyho!
