Personal Information

I joined the SCA for a little light relief from my busy life. I was a single mum in my early 30's with four small children, and teaching Drama/Theatre Studies part time. My aim was just to be a 'fly on the wall' - didn't work though. I entered an A&S comp in Stormhold that was a disaster - told knitting wasn't period! and was pretty disheartened till I entered a poetry comp at Principality level in Riverhaven. From then on I was a competition junkie - thanks for the encouragement folks! Knitting was the next comp and it all took off from there - you could say I became obsessive ;-) I was asked to join the Order just after Festival in ASXXXIV. I have been a keen combat archer, thanks to House Saarlands who took me under their wing early in my SCA career. I have been enjoying my role in the Marshallate for many years and hope to do so for a long time still to come! I have a keen interest in the entertainment arts and am now pleased that Lochac has its first Theatre Laurel, Master Steffan! I have been a member of the SCA for 20 years and it still brings challenges and enjoyment. I am currently on the fringes of House Des Cartes as my own household is inactive. I enjoyed my reign as Queen with Siridean McLachlan, and learnt so much more about Lochac and the SCA in the process.
