Staff About the Author

I live in southeastern Massachusetts where I work as a bookkeeper/administrative assistant at a small civil engineering and land surveying firm.

My biggest hobby, which takes up a large amount of my spare time, is participating in the Society for Creative Anachronism. In the context of SCA geography, I reside in the East Kingdom. Technically I live in the Barony of Smoking Rocks, but I tend to play with the Barony of the Bridge, as I'm closer to their population center.

I'm also a member of two households. First, I'm a Peer of Haus Von Drachenklaue. Although VDK is a fighting household, I don't fight myself. Instead I'm active in the arts and sciences, and the organizational side of the Society. I'm also the head of my own household within VDK, Château leNoir.

One of my goals in the Society is to develop my persona story. I'm slowly finding the time to do the research necessary for this, but it is still very much in the preliminary stages. Until I can gather together a few more necessary facts, my persona story remains fairly simple.

Irène leNoir lives in the small village of Opio, in the south of what is modernly known as France, sometime during latter portion of the 15th century.

I've been in the Society for over seventeen years now. In that time I've acquired a small assortment of awards and titles. While I don't let them swell my head, I am still proud of them. I figure this is as good a place as any to list them, along with some other achievements.
