I’m Mary! I’m 32, I think. I’m starting to lose track. I live in Saint Paul with my tall nerdy husband, our dragon boy, a dog, and three cats. I love fantasy, coffee, and video games.
I work as a therapist serving lots of teens and preteens, lots of queer folks, and a few people who know I’m really weird but think I’m an okay therapist anyway.
I am addicted to my creative outlets of drawing and writing, with a little bit of webdesign thrown in. I put together my own site years ago, and am currently at maryvanalstine.com.
This is my blog. Originally hosted as an internal page on a really old website years ago, I rambled for months – if not years – about my artistic endeavors, just sort of jotting down my thoughts about where I was creatively. I’ve kept up the momentum well into adulthood, and I love it.
Dreaming in Color has been around for eleven years! I started keeping it when I was knee-deep in my first novel project, and I’ve gone through so many phases since then. So much art! So many rambles! So much profanity! I just love it.
