But if you have a moment:
Hey, hello! Thanks for visiting my About page. My name is Tina Rowley and I’m a writer. I’ve written for The Stranger, Tue/Night, The Seattle Star and Quiet Revolution. I've also had a blog called The Gallivanting Monkey, which I began in 2005 over on good old Blogger, where it lived for a decade. The blog gallivanted on over here but now it's in a coma but who's to say it won't wake again someday with all its faculties intact? I've assembled some of my favorites from the old blog in the Writing Elsewhere section here.
OH MY GOD I FEEL COMPELLED TO TELL THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH IS THAT I DO NOT ENJOY WRITING AN ABOUT PAGE FOR MYSELF*. AN ABOUT PAGE COMES DANGEROUSLY CLOSE TO THE ESTABLISHING OF A PERSONAL BRAND AND I SWEAR TO YOU I WILL NOT
BUT AT THE SAME TIME PEOPLE LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT PEOPLE SO I GET IT
*I'd be DELIGHTED to write an about page for YOU because that's different
Also, I love to make little pictures in Paintbrush.
Finally, I live in Seattle with my husband and two sons, all of whom (husband, sons, city) I adore.
We made it. We made it through the About page, everybody.
