A little info about KT Lowe from her website:
“I like to know how stuff works, how objects came to be, how we learn and why we’re sure of what we know (or, rather, how much of it I could know personally). I also like to live my life with an engaging soundtrack, a feline fellow traveler, a good stack o’books and magnificent chocolate. A decent pair of black sneakers always helps.”
