I am a native Californian, but just moved back after spending some time in New York and Portland. I'm brand new to LA, and super excited to be a part of F.L.O.W. I like cats, reading (obviously), indoor gardening, drawing, painting with watercolors, vegan cooking, and making (and drinking) martinis. For the past couple of years, I've read (almost exclusively) books by women writers, and have definitely made some new favorites. Here are a few of them: Carmen Maria Machado’s Her Body and Other Parties; Eve Babitz's Slow Days and Fast Company; Dorothy B. Hughes’ In a Lonely Place; Simone de Beauvoir's, A Woman Destroyed; Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower; Julia Rothman's Ladies' Drawing Night; and Lucy Lippard's From the Center.
