On a Pale Star is one woman’s musings on reading and writing. I am an instructional designer by trade and a writer and reader in my “spare” time. I volunteer with non-profits and repeatedly find myself mentoring teens (be afraid, be very afraid!).

My avatar (gravitar?) is from a picture I took in Hamburg’s Ohlsdorf cemetery. The angel statue/memorial was just beautiful and I felt compelled to take a picture of her.
