Born in Indiana, USA, Alfreda89 also spent time in Michigan, Ohio, and California before settling in Texas. She has a B.F.A. from Ohio Wesleyan University, over 700 hours as a Licensed Massage Therapist, and 120 hours training in web design. She's a Jakob Nielsen minimalist, so don't expect a flashy web site soon. Her obligatory itinerant occupations have included research aide, gold caster, janitor, sales clerk, technical and grant writer, correspondence school instructor, and web wrangler. She's a published novelist, a licensed massage therapist, and massage therapy instructor.
Her life is often weird, but rarely boring.
To friends and lurkers alike: please don't be offended if I don't friend you back. As much as I'd love to spend all my time reading interesting things on the Internet, it just can't happen. I do dive into Live Journal whenever possible, but sometimes it can be weeks (or more) before I do any posting.
A note to fans and/or parents of fans: This site does include references to writing, as well as other aspects of my life. I don't think my LJ writings have ever been rated stronger than PG-13, but that does not always hold true for my Friends page. Think of that Friends link as leaving my site -- I am not responsible for their postings, and they're not responsible for mine.
