I'm Bonnie, born and raised in southwestern Montana, living in the northeast for the last 25 years. Our current house is only about ten miles of the farm where some of my ancestors lived before they migrated west 150 years ago. I'm a software technical writer by profession, fiction writer by choice. I have three kids and have been accused of being an Earth Mother type. I have the build to justify the accusation, but low-carb is helping that :) I use smileys and exclamation points far too much for a woman my age, and I have worn red hats (or other colors) all my life.
