Sharibet is my nom-de-net. I'm the published author of seven historical novels, technical writer, and part-time pastry chef. I live in California with three laptops, rooms filled with books, and a small but noisy parrot. Until recently, I worked at a large software company in the Silicon Valley. After taking a year off from high tech to recover from burnout and to finish writing my portion of the House of the Rose fantasy series, I'm now working as a contractor at a large energy company.
I'm also one of the older fangirls on the Net, and I've been online since the days when you had to type out a complete path of all the computers an email message would be routed through to reach its destination. ::reaches for cane and dentures::
I have excerpts of my published novels up at the Michaela August website. You can find my Inuyasha, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Buffy fanfiction here: http://www.fanfiction.net/~sharibet
