My name's Talena but my moniker on here is "alienmermaid" (inside family joke). I am really excited that I stumbled upon this site - it has synced up nicely with my return to poetry writing, in particular since everyone here is SO NICE!!! Such warmth, light and welcome - it such an embracing atmosphere for a newbie.
A bit about moi - I'm in my thirties (old to some, baby to others), happily married to my husband Dan for six years (known each other for 10), our only children consist of a cat, dog, five rats and a ball python (yes, you read that last bit right).
Dan and I love all creatures great and small and for the last six years we ran an animal rescue non-profit (www.animall.org). We have "retired" and handed the reins off in the hopes to get back to our lives.
Thusly, I now have more time for housework (ugh), loving on the critters and of course, poetry!
My paying job is doing tech support for a company (rhymes with Snapple) with works well for me since I love problem-solving and helping people.
I'm a Southern gal born 'n' bred and proud of it. Hubby and I live four hours from the Blue Ridge Mountains and 2 hours from Carolina beach (and we have family at both!).
I love reading fiction, writing bad fiction and good (I hope) poetry, watching horror movies (the more disturbing the better), science fiction, discovering new things and basically living, loving and enjoying life to its fullest.
Thanks for your reading!
