A Greek and Scotch-Irish heritage means myth is in the DNA, so through a fabled life that included a flute scholarship to Northern Arizona University, a decade in the Fortune 50 world of marketing, a creator of jewelry sold in galleries around the country, and a galactic hostess under brilliant New Mexico night skies, Rae Ann’s passion for myth culminated in a Ph.D. and two Masters’ in Myth and Literature. Now, as a college professor in her home state of California, she has fun teaching, what else? Myth. Studying for all those graduate degrees, she focused on her other passion, animals, and found the best myths are about her furred, feathered and finned friends; their timeless stories are shared on Voice of the Animal, a radio show broadcast on XM Satellite Radio. Her ancestors would be pleased. Rae Ann’s beloved cats, dogs, birds, a desert tortoise and all the wildlife around her home certainly are.
