About My Modeling
Babes with Blades is a wonderful site done by my friend Stuart Jones.
As well, he took many of the photographs you'll see on this
As he once put it, Babes with Blades combines his two
things -- women and weapons -- which he calls a deadly combination.
What I appreciate most about Stuart's site is he doesn't just

ages and all sizes and all sorts of beauty. Truly, beauty is
his eye and he beholds it everywhere.

characters are based on people he knows. Then one day, I received an
e-mail saying he'd put me in his book, that he didn't kill "me" off,
and that my character had an actual character arc. So there "I" am, an
engineer (because I minored in EE, majored in computer science) in one
of John Ringo's novels. Two actually. I received another e-mail
from John, and one from his editor, saying my character is in the
following book as well.
Though the masquerade stage isn't
exactly a runway, I've done quite a bit of "masquerade modeling" and
won a fair number of awards. My favorite award was for "Best Hall
Costume" at a DragonCon several years ago. I didn't even realize there
was a contest. Back then, don't know if it's still true, the staff
wandered the convention, taking pictures and names of people in
costumes. While watching the masquerade, my name was called to
come on stage and receive my certificate and ribbon. Now there was a

extensive collection of gowns, princess clothes, and vampire dresses .
. . not to mention my SCA costumes and, of course, my belly dance
outfits. Because Ravenar (my dance troupe) specializes in theme-shows
for conventions, we have quite an array of outfits from fairies to
vampires. But if you see me on the street, I'll probably be wearing
