Sy Scholfield quotes her on Twitter: "When I was a kid, my mom always woke me up at my birth time (12:02 AM). She still sends me texts even now that I'm an adult" [1], "Hi, North Carolinian here. Born at Fort Bragg" [2], "Google scholar thinks my work was first referenced in 1977. Only if a birth certificate counts as a publication..." [3], "My birthday's on Saturday. JUST SAYING" (posted Thursday 8 March 2018) [4].
