Siggi: Mom, pushing 40. Former public school science and enrichment teacher, current homeschooler. Lifelong artist, scientist, writer, chronic illness manager and bad housekeeper. Likes: medieval history, textures (esp textiles), science fiction, daydreaming, thoughtful discourse, being friends with her kids. Favorite color: Brown.
Daddyman: Dad, also pushing 40, albeit more slowly. Former military and martial arts instructor, current RN, blogger, and science fiction/urban fantasy writer. Lifelong scientist, writer, and procrastinator. Likes: medieval combat, computer games, staying up until all hours to get some quiet time. Favorite color: Blue.
Beara: Daughter, feeling very big now that she’s five. Fraternal twin sister of Big D. Lifelong diva, dancer, singer, healer and Little Lady Love. Likes the rights of being five tons, but not the responsibilities. Would happily live on skim milk and poptarts if I let her, which I won’t.
Likes: being the boss, imaginary play, dressing like a princess, knowing more Chinese and Spanish than either of her parents. Her art is all dynamic walls of color and lush representation.
Favorite color: Yellow, aka ‘lellow’.
