About the Author (Baihu’s Bio)

I’m a geek, and have been kicking around the interwebs since the days of C:\ prompts and message boards. Naturally, I wanted a cool e-mail and nickname . Inspired by Kung Fu classes, Chinese astrology and a book on my desk, “Baihu” was born. I used “Baihu” for a long time writing poetry and doing Tarot readings online.  I don’t use a nickname these days, but I’m grateful for the time of the white tiger and path that brought me here. Thanks for reading – R.
