About Me – III

(Re)learning to sail a drop-keel in a windtunnel. Fun!

Half the Clothes’ author grew up being ridiculous on the high plains of Wyoming and frolicking in America’s Rocky Mountains.

She has since crossed 29 45 international borders, spent 5 7+ years traveling, and written nearly 350 450 stories and articles – mostly self-indulgent.

After bookstores and farmers’ markets, learning is her weakness.  She can’t resist a new skill.  As a result, she’s held more than 26 jobs, many simultaneously.  This causes some people to describe her as an over-achieving workaholic, but really it’s an inability to resist the euphoria of new knowledge.  Although she has a goal to never work again, short-term jobs that teach her something are an exception.

She’s never seen a data set that wouldn’t look good in a spreadsheet, she notoriously stays up well past her bedtime, and she’s still waiting to noodle a catfish.

Her father named her after the KOTA Territory News journalist Gemma Lockhart.  The author did not have any say in the matter, but eventually came to terms with having a “weird” name.
