Hey there.
My name is Beth and I've been reading McCaffrey since 1985 when we moved back to the States from Europe. I spent a lot of time hiding out in the library that year and the librarian gave me a huge box of books among them "Dragonriders of Pern" and the Harper Hall trilogy.

As a college student, I started playing online Pern in the form of various MUSHes, a hobby that continues today.

I have two kids, a husband and very many cats in a little house near Philadelphia.

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."

Nice to see you around again Chris. I haven't heard from Shani in ages either, but I often wonder how she's doing. She might be active over on Pernese Friends still.
