I’m a social-scientist-turned-lawyer by profession and a writer by compulsion. I live in Virginia by way of Washington, New York, Ohio, and Florida. I love books, running, pianos, bourbon, scarves, pasta, and all shades of pink. Online, I go by “Ms. Who,” after the character in Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time.
Evening Docket is my online home base. I write about legal and political issues, food, music, and sometimes parenting. I post photos and recipes. Until May 2019, Evening Docket also tracked Virginia state and federal case law daily. Case links and summaries from that period can be found using the Opinions tab, the tag cloud, and/or the search bar.
