Voracious bibliophile with a Midwestern sensibility. Reader of everything from Joyce and Dave Wallace to A Song of Ice and Fire (several times) and Harry Potter (again, several times). An expert in all things relating to Frasier and an aspiring scratch golfer. Graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a B.A. in English, where I perfected the catnap.
