Ordinary Day

And it's all your state of mind...

Name:
Anna the Piper
Hi, I'm Angela Korra'ti, Anna the Piper online and Anna to my friends. I'm a computer geek, a writer, and an amateur musician, living in Kenmore, WA with my wife solarbird (Dara), our housemate Paul, our cat George, and a whole helluva lot of computers and musical instruments.

I'm a science fiction and fantasy writer, writing under the names of Angela Korra'ti (for my self-pubbed work) and Angela Highland (for Carina Press)! Come find out more about my books at my official site angelahighland.com.

Other things I am, which I'll post a lot about: liberal, agnostic, feminist, queer-friendly, a stage 0 DCIS breast cancer survivor, and a GREAT BIG NERD.

And I'm an amateur musician, and I favor carbon fiber flutes, a blackwood whistle, a piccolo, and guitars as my primary instruments. I also play a little bouzouki and a little mandolin, and I'm taking fiddle lessons too! I'm a member of the Seattle-area monthly Quebecois tunes session and am learning a lot of tunes. Tunes recs welcomed!

I'm a big fan of Atlantic Canadian folk/trad, and a huge fangirl for Great Big Sea in particular. And I'm also passionately in love with the entire genre of Quebecois traditional music--and for the groups Le Vent du Nord, De Temps Antan, Genticorum, Les Charbonniers de l'Enfer, and La Bottine Souriante in particular! All this awesome music is inspiring me to improve my French, so sometimes French will show up in my status updates.
