How a novelist might introduce you. I mean, me.|

Two years ago I wrote this as my self-introduction for the member page of my book club. The next meeting, suddenly everyone wanted to talk to me! LOL (It's not quite what you were doing here, but it's 'what I got.' )
"I was a regular member of the Polar Bear Club in college. I have talked with prostitutes, had my veins complimented by heroin addicts, and taken teenagers to El Salvador to meet former gang members. I married a geek, and won him over by being willing to replace internal parts of a PC. I invited the homeless folks I worked with to come to my wedding. I hope my children will some day be arrested for peaceful public protest. Recently, I rescued a 15" snapping turtle from a busy road. She didn't appreciate it, but I still have all my fingers."
