You often hear about courageous humans who climb Everest without oxygen, or who circle the world on a rickety bicycle, or who swim the Bering Straight with nothing but a bathing suit, goggles, and extremely shrunken genitals. Conquerors. Pioneers. Fearless super heroes.

She lives in Melbourne, Australia, with a mini fox terrier cursed by small-dog syndrome.
