Name:raketje
Birthdate:Jul 18
Location:United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
I'm an American ex-pat who currently lives in Walthamstow, East London, with my husband and our array of 4-legged/finned friends (a cat, a gecko and many many fish).

I have multiple degrees I don't use in Roman Archaeology. I am also an opera singer.



Currently I'm writing a novel (very slowly), training for a variety of 10k and half-marathon races, going to and from auditions and working as a civil servant in Westminster to pay the bills while I wait for my singing to bring in enough money to feed me.


My husband, Merv, and me.
