Name: Mundane name: Sarah Dorrance-Minch. SCA name: The Honourable Lady Isobel Wren, called Midori
Interests, hobbies, obsessions, perseverations etc: Natural childbirth, lactivism, vampirology, storm chasing, the Society for Creative Anachronism, Harry Potter fandom, brewing cordials, speculative fiction (both reading and writing), poetry (ditto), choral singing, Jung, the Holy Grail, BDSM, mortgages, real estate titles, role playing games, unicorns, ouroboros symbols, the history of esoteric philosophy e.g. Marsilio Ficino's neoplatonism, and occasional temporary intellectual obsessions (anything that doesn't last longer than two weeks is probably just a phase; any perseveration that lasts longer is probably going to turn into a lifelong obsession, even if it gets put on the back burner for a few months or years)
Year of birth: 1970
Profession, area of study, etc: I have a bachelor's in English from Baldwin-Wallace College, studied at Oxford University (Oriel College) for two years until my student loans ran out two months shy of my English exams, and am now a telemarketer. I'm hoping to remedy the situation by studying for a M.Ed in elementary education with Waldorf certification from Antioch University. When my children are in school and I have more free time, I also hope to get back to my writing, and to volunteering as a doula at home births.
Where you live in the world: Indianapolis, IN
Marital status, # of kids etc.: Married (to another> high-functioning autist), two kids (one of whom has a formal diagnosis of autism, the other of whom is probably on the spectrum somewhere). Some days I wonder if we're like an autistic version of the Addams Family or something...
