To the right is a picture of me at five years old and basically, nothing has changed since then. If you were to beam yourself down next to me at any given moment (and please, if you’ve figured out how to teleport, DO IT, because how cool would that be?!), chances are you’d find me curled up somewhere, reading. Of course, I have two little boys now, so I read far fewer books than I used to. But let’s be honest, I still read a lot.
I have to read. It’s like breathing to me.
Writing is a fairly new thing. A few years ago, after I’d become a full-time Mommy, I realized I needed something to do, to get my mind away from diapers and naptimes. So I started a blog about my favorite subjects, books and science geekery. And then I decided to write a book about my amazing Grandma.
And here we are.
I’m an introvert by nature, which, fortunately, is now in vogue (Introverts Unite! But separately.) I’ve been a runner for 35 years, but I just started to enjoy it a year ago. I got married at 18 (not recommended), but I picked a great guy (highly recommended), and we’re about to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We had babies really late in the game, which means we’re perpetually tired. But our two boys are just the best little humans in the whole world. Seriously. We checked.
I am fascinated by nearly everything in the whole wide world – and that surely includes you. So we’ll get along just fine.
Take a look around! I’m not blogging regularly, at the moment (thanks to book-related busyness), but all my posts are archived here. Please connect with me on any of my social media sites…introversion aside, I love meeting people.
And check out the book if you get a chance.
My Grandma’s pretty cool, and so is her story.
