About The Writer



This picture is more or less me (umm, except the pet deer)

Bienvenue! I'm a mom-in-training, book-loving, very old-fashioned Kansas girl who loves Jesus. My pen name is Awdur, which is Welsh for "writer."

More information than you care to know:

I'm nineteen on the outside, ninety-four on the inside.

Although I'm now going to college, I was homeschooled since first grade and basically I'm still a homeschooler. Yes, I have friends. No, I have never worn pajamas to school. Ironically, I'm majoring in Elementary Education.

 I am a literature connoisseur. Mostly I read classics, biographies, and fairy tales of all sorts.

Janeite. Tolkienist. House elf.

 Although you'd never find me saying I'm really "in to" music, I have played the piano since 2007, and recently endeavoured to learn the violin. Though I have little time for either nowadays, I do love to sit down and play.

I enjoy sewing, embroidering, knitting (mostly baby stuff) and darning socks.

I may not have mentioned that I love tea.
I love to dance in the English Country Style (and select ballroom dancing).

Many of my posts concern healthy eating. I cook a lot and understanding health is important to me, especially as being a homemaker is my ideal career, and I wish to be adequately prepared. My diet has evolved greatly over the past 5 years, from paleo, to pescatarian, to dairy free, etc. Nowadays I eat a modified paleo diet: I eat very little meat (mostly fish) or dairy, avoid sugar and wheat, and generally try to eat whole, organic, natural foods. 

I have two older sisters, an adorable toddler niece, and a newborn nephew. Plus three or four non-blood sisters, a twin and two brothers.

If you haven't figured it out already, I'm an old soul. If these tidbits about me correspond to any of your sentiments, stick around.

  3. I know what you mean. 😉 Are you learning Classical, Fiddle, or something else?

    1. Um... I'm a very ignorant person. :) I assume classical?

  4. That's what I play. It's generally movie scores, Bach, Mozart, Hymns, that sort of thing. :)

  6. We are totally birds of a feather!

    I'm nineteen. I'm an English Country Dancer. I'm a homeschooled Christian. I sew. I'm a history nut. I've played piano since I was nine, and I really like Grieg, Chopin, and Debussy. I have NOT been to the UK and I do not live in the midwest. I'm a historical costumer.

    1. Hi Michaela! Blogger has been difficult for me, and although I tried to respond to your comment directly after you posted it, my own blog wasn't letting me post comments for a while...??
      I'm always thrilled to hear from a kindred spirit! (And particularly homeschooler. That fact alone makes me glad to see your comment. :P ) English country dancing is not so common... That's cool that you know the YAPD and RD authors too!
