M stands for Michelle, and I live in Beverly Hills, CA (no, not in THAT zip code) with my husband and pet bamboo plant. The fern plant died. We moved out here from NYC after I finished my course work for my MFA from Columbia, and yes, the sun does shine here every day. I'm originally from Seattle, and yes, it does rain there every day.
I love Shakespeare and soft sci-fi. Current favorite authors: David Mitchell, Cormac McCarthy, and Haruki Murakami. I'm working on a novel and a collection of short prose pieces just to keep myself balanced, and I hope to do an in-line skating marathon next year.
