Cedar is a recent graduate with a bachelor’s of science in Forensic Science and Investigation, with dual minors in Chemistry and Molecular Biology. She is also an author, and artist, a mother, a wife, an avid amateur photographer, a reader, perennially inquisitive and interested in everything. This has the result of leaving those watching her indefatigable efforts panting in exhaustion.
The First Reader, Sanford Begley, is the curmudgeon of Curmudgeon’s Corner. He was born in Kentucky, raised in Ohio on a dairy farm, and wound up traveling around with world courtesy of the US Army. A decent cook, meticulous technician, and wry humorist, Cedar calls him the drop of acid to balance her sweet. His occasional essays do not qualify him as a writer, he’s often heard to proclaim that he is not a writer; he doesn’t have to write.
There will be occasional mentions on the blog of the rest of the cast of characters, using nom-de-blogs for privacy reasons.
The Eldest – a lovely young lady with a brilliant mind, Cedar’s oldest daughter.
Otaku Princess – quirky, mildly obsessed with DC comics, fanfiction, and anime, her goal in life is to travel to Japan for a year after highschool.
The Junior Mad Scientist – at a very young age decided that she wanted to be like Abby on NCIS, a happy goth. Also as Cedar’s youngest daughter, she is currently being homeschooled and may allow some of her essays to be published on the blog.
The Little Man – he may be the baby in a family with three older sisters, but he’s all boy. We speculate that the sisters will either leave him really good with girls when he grows up, or a lifelong bachelor. So far, his main interests are the dog, mincraft, and legos.
Tricksy – the family dog. What kind of dog? Well, she’s black… She’s also short, built like a brick, and sweet as can be. She’s devoted to the First Reader and he is to her.
