Furry Coauthors

I owe my sanity and the names in many of my paper examples to the animals in my life.


Cheyenne keeps me active and reminds me that bedtime is strictly at 9:30pm. 


Hemi is always the first to tell me when I have been working too long by laying on my laptop and refusing to let me go on. 


Luna makes me appreciate the relatively low stress of graduate school by finding creative ways to injure herself at inopportune moments.


Izzie reminds me there is pure goodness in the world and proves that one does not need to be smart to be lovable. Does anyone have a brain cell they could spare?


Scarlett connects me to my South Carolina roots, giving me a very good reason to come home when I've been away too long.
