Some Basics

My name is Andrea. I have a full-time job as the webmaster at a local university and spend most of my evenings at home, hanging out with my cats – and occasionally my husband.  If we haven’t met yet, the most important thing you can know about me is that I am a geek. Actually, make that Geek, with a capital “G.”

I do lots of things you would expect out of a homesteader, like quilting and canning. I also have a habit of taking photos of everything. It drives my husband nuts but is less noticeable when I use my phone instead of the good camera. I love to read and seem to be spending a lot of time doing just that lately. Though somehow, my TBR (to be read) pile doesn’t seem to be getting any smaller.

I grew up with Harry Potter, and Rowling’s books will always have a special place in my heart. And though it’s a newer obsession, I’m mad about the works of Douglas Adams.  The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and it’s companion novels are among my favorites.

For way more information than you ever needed to know about the fandoms I admit to- check out my Fandoms page.

At Home

My wonderful husband & I have been married since 2009. We live on a small farm in rural southwest Indiana where we are currently in the process of getting our livestock set up.  The ducks arrived last May and have been producing eggs for us since October.  We also have the first of what will hopefully be about half a dozen cows in the pasture.

We also have two cats: one outdoor kitten named Lucky who spends way too much time inside; and Mouse, our extremely territorial indoor cat who hides from new humans and hates when Lucky gets to come inside.

That will probably make things very interesting when Baby Turner, who is due in April, comes home.  Hopefully, it will go smoothly.


There’s a bunch of legal stuff I’m supposed to let you know about. Find it all here.
