New Blogger On The Block

Hello All!

I’m so happy to have been invited to contribute to this blog. It’s such an exciting honor.

Writing can be a very solitary endeavor, and I love that through the power of technology writers all over can share thoughts on the roller coaster that is putting words down on paper. I look so forward to sharing thoughts with you.

But for today, I guess I'll start by giving you a little 411 on me. So, here goes, in the form of 20 random statements.

1. I was born in Alaska, grew up in California, and currently live in Texas.
2. I am the author of two books, The Icing on the Cake, and Previously Engaged.
3. I love humor. I love reading it, writing it, watching it—sometimes even being the butt of it.
4. I watch American Idol. And I sometimes vote. I’m not ashamed. (Okay, a little ashamed.)
5. I’m thisclose to being finished with my taxes.
6. I have Miley Cyrus music on my iPod.
7. This is my first spring in Texas. For three nights in a row, I’ve had nightmares about tornados.
8. My younger sister is about to make me an aunt. I’m SO going to spoil that little girl.
9. I love It’s a writer’s dream.
10. I’m so excited for the upcoming LDStorymakers Conference.
11. In high school I drove a 1967 Mustang.
12. I now drive a Honda Civic.
13. I play the piano.
14. My husband’s teaching me the guitar.
15. I’m 5 foot 10.
16. But I stink at basketball.
17. If I had to live somewhere other than my own house, I’d choose IKEA.
18. I find doing laundry soothing.
19. I’ve never gotten a traffic ticket.
20. Now that I wrote that, I’ll probably get one tomorrow.

Thanks for reading! I’m looking forward to getting to know YOU!

Welcome to the Writing Fortress. It's exciting to have another DFW author on the blog.

And yes, tornadoes are scary, but this is our 8th spring in Texas, and hail has proven to be a much more likely problem.

I look forward to meeting you at Storymakers.
