Hmm. About Me…
I’m a 30′s-something author who is 5’10″ and likes girly things like hot pink nail-polish, flowers and high heels.
Random fun facts about me:
- I collect dashboard hula-girls.
- I like to have my car stereo volume set at an even number.
- I can barely remember my natural hair color.
- I am terrified of buoys and birds.
- I love cemetery angels. Is that weird?
My favorite books as a kid were…. “A Little Princess” by Francis Hodgson Burnett and “Charlotte’s Web” by E.B. White. And then I got into the Trixie Belden series, even though they were already pretty dated even then. But so what? A good book is timeless.
I grew up in rural Kansas, so yes, I am a corn-fed Kansas girl. My husband calls me his “Sunflower” because that sounds so much better. (You can see references of that in Dante’s Girl– Dante calls Reece his Sunflower. Awww!) I live in Indiana now- the actual land of corn, I think- near Lake Michigan and Chicago. I have two sons and a daughter; and two dogs and two cats. I only like one of my cats, but I do like all of my kids. Haha.
