Ajah Questions:

  • Why did you choose Gray?

I chose Gray because the sisters were all very down-to-earth and did not make me feel like an outsider. From the beginning they were all genuinely nice, thought to include me in conversations (I am terrible at jumping in), and my mentor was excellent. Still, it was a hard choice at the end because other Ajahs were also awesome.

  • Are you like the Grays in the books? Do you enjoy following politics and mediating disputes?

HAHAHAHA no, absolutely not. I would definitely be a Green or Blue in the books.

  • Do you have a favorite Gray Ajah character from the novels?

Yukiri is pretty cool.

Book Questions:

  • How long have you been a fan of the Wheel of Time series?

Since the 90's

  • How did you first get into the series?

I had just finished Tigana and a friend of mine recommended WOT. I haven't stopped. When I finish the end, I start over.

  • Who is your favorite "hero"?

Probably Birgitte or Logain

  • Favorite bad guy/gal?


  • Favorite book and scene?

My favorite book is EOTW for pure nostalgia, but my favorite scene is Mat kicking butt against Gawyn and Galad.

  • If you were set down in Randland, who/what would you see yourself as? An Aes Sedai? Innkeeper? Seanchan Captain?

I would hope to be a Wise One of the Aiel.

General Questions:

  • How did you find TarValon.Net and what convinced you to stay and become a Senior Member?

I found during my first JordanCon. I stayed because I am a) an avid WOT reader and lover and b) I began making family/friends.

  • What do you do in "real life"?

I am a natruopath and editor for a magazine.

  • Do you have any hobbies?

Yes, I read, paint, sew, hike (when health permits), and help take care of our Japanese garden.

  • What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?

I can listen to anything except death metal and country.

  • What are some of your favorite movies / television shows?

I am a huge Star Wars fan, though I do prefer the originals. I also like Midsomer Murders, the 1996 Pride & Prejudice, Fraiser, and spy movies.

  • Aside from The Wheel of Time, what are a few of your favorite books/series?

Other favorite books include The Poisonwood Bible, The Alchemist, The Rincewind series, and the Master & Commander series.

  • What profession did you want to have when you were a kid?

Until I was about 12 I was convinced I would grow up to be a pirate.
