I write books for tweens and blog about reading and writing (but not arithmetic). If you want a little piece of the action, be sure to subscribe to my blog. I like people who subscribe.

Some of my many talents include making a mean box of Mac & Cheese, drawing stick figures, creating blog designs and finding Waldo.

If I could do anything I wanted, I'd train to be a lion tamer. Totally serious. I'm not sure how one gets on that career path, but it's on my list of to-dos. Also on my list? Travel to London, learn sign language and be the best mom I can be to my little boy. Oh, and get published. Yep, I'm ambitious like that. Read more about me here.

Has it Really Been That Long?

As of today, I've been blogging for five years. FIVE YEARS people. That's like forever in blogging land. Granted, I don't post regularly. But you're probably all grateful for that ;)

I started this blog back in '09 when I'd just begun my first novel and was super duper excited about it (clip from the very best movie of all time). My first post shows just how naive I was about publishing (spoiler alert: I copyrighted a book when I'd only written one chapter. And I thought that was cool. *headdesk*).

Since then, I've written a total of four complete books and am 1/3 through my fifth. I have a dozen agents on my radar who have personally asked me to submit it once it's finished, and I have high hopes that this will be the year. Cuz it has to happen sometime soon, right? RIGHT????

I feel like my writing has improved drastically and I'm in a good place. I can't believe how much has changed in five years (and how much hasn't...). So, to celebrate my five year blogoversary, here, have a cupcake on me.

P.S. The red velvet one is mine. Hands off!
