Welcome to my blog! Please join me as I journey towards finding an agent for my first young adult novel. Between writing, endless snapping of photos, sleep deprivation, taking care of two adorable little girls, and oh yes, the laundry, I'm sure it's going to be a bit crazy on the way to the awaited publication.

I'm open to any tips, critique, or random musings about the things I write or the photos I take, so feel free to email me or comment below.

Tag: You're it!

Ok, time for a break from writing and have a little fun.

I've been tagged by Avery Marsh, a fellow Campaigner. The rules are that I have to tell you 10 random facts about myself and then tag four other bloggers.  Muhuhahaha (my attempt at an evil laugh).

Ok, if you're still reading, here goes:

1.  Every time I see a tree I have to scope out the best way to climb it. (Don't worry, I don't actually climb trees... mostly)

2.  My dream place to visit is Ireland...or Greece.

3.  I'd rather scrub toilets (or anything else) than do laundry.

4.  I HATE the sound of a fork being scraped against a plate...or skillet. Sounds like nails on a chalkboard to me.

5.  I've never broken a bone in my body (surprisingly with all the times I fell out of a tree as a kid)

6.  I love everything to do with quantum physics. (I'm a closet nerd, shhh don't tell anyone)

7.  I don't trust flying in a tin can, strapped to a chair, while being thousands of feet in the air. (see #6)

8.  I like to go grocery shopping after 11pm, otherwise I tend to get shopping cart road rage.

9.  Eating peas make me gag.

10. I'm a descendant of the Salem Witches. I LOVE genealogy and have a huge stockpile of research on different royal lines in my family.

Alright, so there you go. Now, the next four tagged (if they choose to participate) are:

     Kate Swenson
     Jennifer Groepl
     Crystal Cheverie
     Lauren Orbison

Tag! You're it!

If anyone else would like to participate, tell me one or two random facts about yourself below. :)


  1. Awesome! Another nerd...though I'm not closet...just a nerd. lol.

  2. I obsessed for about five years on my family tree! Salem witches? What fun! I discovered a great-great grandfather who murdered his neighbor - not so fun. But I learned so much about my ancestors! Wow! I hope to write some historical novels one of these days and incorporate some of it. :)

    P.S. Peas make me gag too.

  3. Love your layout! It's beautiful. :) I don't blame you at all on peas. I don't care for them, myself. How do you tag on a blog? I'm so new to all of this sort of stuff, lol. I don't even have the pic for the write campaign on mine yet.

  4. Hi Lauren. I'm not sure how to link in Wordpress, but in Blogger, I insert a link (the other blogger's web address) and rename it with the person's name. Does that make sense?

  5. Oh, I love peas!

    I also loved climbing trees, and wish I still could :-)

  6. Me to Sarah! My little girls LOVE climbing trees...Hmm I wonder who they get that from. :) Although it's funny because I'm so hesitant to let them do it. I'm so afraid they'll break an arm or leg.

  7. Oooh, count me in with visiting Ireland and Greece! I actually love doing laundry - I like the way clean clothes smell! I hope you swing by my blog tomorrow to check out my 10 facts because... I have a couple of interesting distant relations, too! (hint: One was a gangster, the other was a native peacemaker)

  8. Welcome from a fellow campaigner. Thanks for stopping by my website and leaving an award. Maybe that will get me to post more regularly. Gald you liked the castle.

    BTW, as a chemist, I enjoy quantum physics too, although I suspect you know more about it than I do.

    "...have a huge stockpile of research on different royal lines in ..." You have more than one? I'm jealous.
