I call it my "black hole"- those times when I am hot on the trail of solving a genealogy brick wall. Like any enchantment worth its salt, family tree research has the power to hold me in its spell for hours/days at a time.
My other delights include my present-day family, our five rescue cats, my home in the country and writing both personal stories and fiction. You'll find some of that here in my blog and more of it here on my writing website Time to Write.
I've been blessed with an insatiable curiosity and a dog-with-a-bone level of tenacity. If you'll allow me, I'd love to dig into your family history.
