About me

Gender Female
Location United States
Introduction Full-time mom. Full-time wife. Full-time aspiring author. Part-time accounting clerk. I am left-handed. I talk to my computer. I sing at the top of my lungs in the car. I'd get a lot more done if I wasn't always searching for my keys.
Interests Writing, reading, and more writing. I am also addicted to Facebook, Twitter, and Diet Coke.
Favorite Movies A weird mix of comedies and musicals: Napoleon Dynamite, Office Space, Clueless, The Blues Brothers, Hair, Center Stage, Billy Elliot, Fame (the original), The Commitments, Moulin Rouge, Strictly Ballroom. I never tire of '80s Brat Pack movies: Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, St. Elmo's Fire, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Pretty In Pink, About Last Night. Best movie ever: The Princess Bride.

Favorite Books Too many to mention here. Drop me off in the YA section of a book store, and I will be very, very happy. I also love early Stephen King- Carrie, Firestarter, Children of the Corn, and especially The Stand. Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series is phenomenal. Although I tend to like books with a darker edge, my sentimental favorite is Anne of Green Gables. I even named my daughter after Anne.

You've been invited to a fancy ball but the only thing you have to wear is an orange wooly jumper. What shoes do you wear?

Forget the shoes. I'd wear my rainbow-striped toe-socks and WORK IT, baby!
