What did you want to be when you grew up?
I still pretend I'll be a ballerina one day, even though I didn't take my first class until my twenties. (And my last.)
Honestly, I wanted to be a kindergarden teacher.
And be a mom.
Never once did becoming a writer cross my mind, until...
After much pleading from my husband, I finally picked up a fiction book and read. (See, I was more of: I'll wait until it comes out in movie form, kind of girl.) But thankfully, I get reading now. The characters. The worlds. The adventures. Love! Fast forward through two years of non-stop reading, and Ta-da, I wrote some stories, which led to me being represented by Jessica Kirkland, Kirkland Media Management. (Okay, so there was a lot more to it than that, but you get the idea.)
I'm a member of ACFW, a current reviewer at Straight Off The Page, a blogger here. and a past Regular Guest Contributor at Edgy Inspirational Romance and Straight Off The Page. My wide taste of reading can be found on GoodReads! And I like to procrastinate on pinterest. (A lot.)
I'm an award winning lip-syncer
I love-LOVE-love vanilla cokes, my mamaw's mashed tators, and cheese
I have a photography business
I love dating my husband
My kids usually beat me at UNO
Vacations-YES, please (especially: the beach, sigh.)
My life's full of events that just don't happen to normal people. I mean, have you ever had a goat jump into your minivan when you're trying to go to town, watched your husband leave for 3 deployments, or receive a surprise adoption? And that's just the beginning! Wait until I tell you about the cross country trip with my in-laws. One RV made to sleep 6. Yes, we packed in 16. Exactly! See, this is why I think my life is secretively being taped for a reality tv show! Or perhaps God has "blessed" me with these memories to use as starting points for my stories. Hang on tight. I hope you enjoy my randomness.
With Love and Prayers,
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not on your own understanding;
Proverbs 3:5 NIV
