Who am I?

Celtic scholar, avid photographer, obsessive baker, and firm believer in the existence of dragons and the Otherworld (in the form of Narnia, among others).  I came to Edinburgh in September 2011 for a postgraduate degree in Celtic Literature and Languages and decided to record my adventures through photos.  I finished my degree (out of breath and out of mind, but finished!) in August of 2012 and have since begun teaching English literature to college freshmen.  Despite having left castles and bagpipes behind, this blog continues to be an outlet for my photography and adventures.

I am a Christian and that defines my life in every way.

I am a crafty, crafty person who crochets, bakes, knits, and writes.

I love caring for animals, which is why I currently own a rabbit named Bella who thinks she should be Supreme Mistress of the Universe, a feisty betta fish named Beofish who is not afraid of anything, and Loki and Thor the hamsters who lived up to their names by deciding they hated each other so much that I had to separate them.  I have also recently purchased a prickly, adorable hedgehog named Sebastian. He’s a work in progress.

I was nicknamed the Ninja Bunny because of my martial arts proclivities and my apparent inability to look threatening.  I embraced the nickname and now plan to make everyone terrified of bunnies in general.

I am an aspiring author of light, humorous fantasy and I also write posts for Lantern Hollow Press’s blog, which is a relatively new, but very exciting online press of which I am a founding member.  Check out our free e-zine!

What can you expect to find on my posts these days?  A little bit of everything.  Some baking when I feel like it, projects that I’ve accomplished, animal antics, and any adventures on which I bring my camera along.

    Your photography of castles near Cardiff were amazing! What camera did you use?

    I was in search of any possible waterfalls within half a day’s drive. I did some primordial pre-internet research, and so drove from Exeter, Devon (staying with my sister’s family) to a bewitching area just north of Cardiff. (I say “bewitching” because the motto back then was “Wales, It’s Magic.”) Anyway, I met up with some cavers (people who go caving) while having dinner at the local pub. They proposed, “How would you like to go caving tomorrow.” I of course jumped at the opportunity. The next day, they showed me a truly magical underground world, including, but not limited to, a cavern with a waterfall, nay, two waterfalls tumbling into it, and then one of the exits involved having to go underwater to another cavern.

    • My camera is a Nikon D3100 – not the most flashy DSLR, but it got the job done for me! Glad you enjoyed the pictures. 🙂 I loved Wales and really want to go back. I only had two days.

      Your adventure sounds spectacular. I’m fairly convinced Wales is magical.
