I was born the day thousands of turkeys sacrificed their lives to fill millions of American bellies on November 22 which also happened to be Thanksgiving Day (My mother says I owe her a turkey). I was born in Texas, but never lived there, so no, I am NOT from Texas. I’m from Georgia and that’s just all there is to it.
I grew up a military brat (I’m bad ass for that alone) and moved around a lot, but no matter where I was, I always had books. Lots and lots of books. My mother kept me in the library, not that she had to force me, and I read constantly growing up. My first series was the Babysitters Club, and I went at it hardcore. I owned most of the series and was even a member of the fan club. Good times. But that was just the beginning. I’ve read hundreds of books since then, and along the way, I found my gift for writing.
Sad to say, I’ve trashed more stories than I’ve shared. I’m one of those writers that won’t let anyone read something I’m not proud of. It’s just not happening. I’m sure my fellow authors/writers out there would agree. But I think it had more to do with not knowing who I was or what I really wanted out of life.
But I do now.
Writing is BOSS. I’ve been writing everyday for the past few years without fail. Even if it’s just a few paragraphs. It’s a PASSION, something I can’t live without. And I have so many ideas crawling around in my head that I just have to do something with them! I’ve chosen to share them with all of you.
Besides writing and reading every book I can get my hands on, I LOVE God, movies and PREMIUM cable television. Yes, PREMIUM. That means HBO, Showtime, Starz, etc. No ABC Family for me (though I do watch “Switched at Birth” religiously). I’m a bit of a karaoke junkie (My dad is too, so I guess you can say, it’s inherited) and I love listening to classical music while I write. Besides high heels and doubleshots, I like french fries (and snack cakes!) and downloading unnecessary apps to my iPhone. I thought I liked the beach, tried it a few times, have decided that I’m not really a fan, and I wear eyeglasses sometimes even though my vision is perfectly fine. I’m scared of heights, I love thunderstorms, and adore Capri Suns. Oh, the Capri Suns (the grocery store by my house has a 10 for $10 deal that I take advantage of regularly).
Above all, I’m blessed. With family and friends who care about me and support me and keep me laughing. Humor RULES. I love all of you and wouldn’t trade any of you for all the gold in the world (Circumstances pending)(wink, wink).
