This is the part about the author



I'm Liz Alfano: a white woman living in North America.  

I went to school at the University of Montana where I graduated with a degree in English Literature. I hadn't yet seen Steve Martin's reprisal role as the father in "Father of the Bride," so I didn't grasp that my degree was making me "an employable non-ape." But that's what it did, and that's what I am.

I'm doing some freelance writing now for various people who like my voice and can translate the ape noises that come out of my face and fingers. If you're reading this then it's pretty obvious you have the same talent! I love being amongst one of my own.

This blog is my personal venue for expression, and I know you have choices in blog reading...thanks for choosing Dirty Words!

You can see some other writing I've done here, in what I'll call my "Online Portfolio" (because that's what they're called):

AND....at my personal website, because it's all about me.
