I’m Ana Jane. Because of my homeschooling (un-schooling) I learned all the wrong things. Learning the wrong things is where I found my voice. I didn’t take the path less traveled - I bushwhacked without a path and I have the scars to prove it.

Besides having a B.A. from The Evergreen State College and doing a year towards an MFA at Naropa University, I have had a number of mini-careers. Starting out as a dishwasher I worked my way up to bus girl. I learned quickly that food service would never love me and went on to working at Planned Parenthood and then retail in the mall. I have worked at three different holistic pet shops and learned pet nutrition. I had my own clutter clearing business and have cleaned professionally since my teens. I was a graveyard shift security officer in a hospital, and that’s just the tip of my iceberg.

I have traveled when given the opportunity. My favorite foods are sushi and mac & cheese. I love the color blue. My favorite movies are Harold and Maude and Silence of the Lambs. I collect vinyl (records) they remind me of my father. I have two dogs Lulu and Frankie. I collect Miss Scarlet Clue Cards and am extremely scared of spiders. My brother is the 3rd best Nintendo player in the USA (first in my opinion). I once owned a hearse. I enjoy the numbers 3 and 9.
