(Now updated!) We’re very happy to announce our newest guest blogger: Rosalynde Welch. Rosalynde grew up in Southern California, the eldest of eleven children. She graduated from BYU in 1998 with a BA in English; and she served a mission in Porto, Portugal from 1996-7. In June 2004, she was awarded a PhD in Early Modern Literature from the University of California at San Diego, where she studied under Louis Montrose and dissertated under the title â€œPlacing Private Conscience in Early Modern England.â€? (Wow, sounds cool!). She has published in Dialogue and BYU Studies, and currently works at home in St. Louis, MO, with her husband, John, and her children, Elena (3) and Jack (1).
Of course, that is not all. As our regular readers know, Rosalynde is a top-notch T & S commenter. She was also, by her own admission, once involved in a “notorious love tetrahedron”* which included sometime T & S guest-blogger (and some-time T & S nemesis?) Steve Evans. (She reputedly won him over with “sensuous prose,  curvaceous syntax, [and] exciting prepositions.” We can only hope for an occasional soupcon of the same.) Rosalynde is known to keep company with Fowl types, and is reputed to be a Farmer’s daughter (or -in-law, or something like that). As for any other information about her, you’ll have to get that from the woman herself.
Welcome to our cozy little asylum, Rosalynde! I’m sure you’ll fit right in.
*For the geometrically challenged, let me offer this link: The Tetrahedron. Yikes! Look at all of those connecting lines — three connections per point! If love tetrahedra aren’t already banned by constitutional amendment, they should be! (Amendment four, anyone?)
