Seven Facts About Me:

1. I hate shoes! I am one of the very few ladies I know who owns very few pair of shoes (only the necessary ones). The thing is that I always prefer my feet to be as bare as possible (especially during the warmer months). So I will be sporting flip flops all summer if i have to wear shoes anywhere.

2. I’m from Oswego, NY. It’s a little college town on Lake Ontario with beautiful sunsets. I have lived here nearly my whole life (minus about 6 months that I lived in Potsdam). It has beautiful springs, summers, and autumns, however winters are brutal. I look forward to the day when I can move away from here and the umpteen feet of snow we get each winter.

3. I’ve been trying to walk 3 miles a day at least 5 days a week. Since I’ve been doing this I feel so much better about everything. It’s so relaxing and great me time to think about my novel and daydream, plus it’s great exercise!!! I have walked 65 miles in the past 3 weeks 🙂

4. Other than reading and writing, one of my favorite hobbies is crochet. Its such a relaxing hobby, but I need a break from it. I just did a craft show where I had a bunch of crochet stuffed animal critters.

5. I’m a total “city” girl and grew up in the city of Oswego (even though it is a very small city). Now I’m living in the country outside Oswego and it’s actually growing on me. I like how quiet it is and how much space we have, but I miss being able to walk everywhere I go.

6. I try to read and/or write every day. It’s one of those routines that I got myself into and really enjoy. Like my daily walks, I look forward to that time, even if it is only 15 minutes.

7. I worked in an ice cream shop for 8 years (seasonal summer work) all though high school and my undergraduate years of college. It was definitely a fun experience and I hope to draw some of those experiences into a YA book that I started writing and then set to the side a couple of years ago.
