Hey there Champions! Typically I don’t like to talk about me because it feels a little, hmmmm, self-centered? (Or maybe a little boring too, hah-hah) However, I’ve recently had the chance to chat a bit more with a few of you Champions, which has given me a much better idea of what my audience is like. In the spirit of sharing, I thought I would tell you guys a bit about myself.
What do I read?
I read just about anything. I’m not into super hardcore Sci Fi–although I have made exceptions–and I tend to stay away from American Prarie themed books as I was obsessed with those as a kid and read waaaaaaaay too many of them. Horror isn’t my thing, but I have a special love for all things fantasy. I read historical and modern fiction, but ironically while my favorite genre is fantasy most of my favorite books are classics. (Like Pride and Prejudice, Count of Monte Cristo, Heidi, King Arthur and His Knights, Little Princess, ect.) I love romance, but I’m a little shy and a tad jaded about it so I don’t go for the melodramatic love stories. (Hah-hah, as we can all tell by my passionate hatred for Lancelot and Guinevere.)
What is my most treasured possession?
My dog, hands down. Perfect Dog, as I have occasionally referred to her, is my 2 year old collie. She’s the sweetest, cutest dog ever–although she is somewhat spoiled. She’s unusually intelligent, but she can also be a wee bit belligerent. (In example, if it is 5 degrees Fahrenheit and I’m outside with her, waiting for her to use the facilities she will take FOREVER so I freeze my butt off.) Perfect Dog is my ideal companion, though. She keeps me from sitting in my office all day like hermit, and when I am working she curls up on her bed near my desk. Ah, I think I have a picture of her sitting around here. One moment please!
What do I do with my spare time?
I read a lot, I spend a lot of time with my dog, I troll the internets for information and research material, and I play video games. (I am a certified geek.) I also like baking, which is kind of a bad thing for my waistline. In the summer I like going around to rummage sales to look for cool furniture and props. When I was but a wee little girl my family got a costume chest which we bust out and use for everything from Halloween costumes to taking themed black and white photos. I love looking for accessories and items to add to our costume chest. I also like scrapbooking, although lately I haven’t had anything to scrapbook. Hm…
I’ve got a major thing for fat penguins and short, stout owls. And chunky ponies. Hahah, I guess I like chubby animals.
Thanks for reading, Champions. Embittered is finished and the test reader gave it her stamp of approval, so this week I shall start editing. Until Wednesday, take care!
