Lapsed Latinist with a fixation on early civilizations and the ancient world, Fred currently works as a freelance copyeditor when she’s not spinning, quilting, knitting or buying things to spin, quilt, or knit. She’s quite certain there’s a loom or bulky plier flyer kit lurking past the next paycheck. Or maybe the next. She lives with her husband and their three cats on what will soon be the gulf coast.
