Anne Manning had to have been a Texan in a previous life. This time around, she got to the Lone Star State as fast as she could. When she's not writing, she raises herbs and trolls the Food Network for new and exciting recipes to use them. Her latest passion is learning about website design and adding fresh, interesting content to her website. Her muse, Calliope is contributing her own column to that effort.
Calliope is the muse of epic poetry and once worked with the poet Homer. No, not Simpson. The Greek guy.
Renowned as the wisest of the muses--and the most assertive--Calliope is often seen with an iPad, though she sometimes uses papyrus.
