Hey everybody! It’s been awhile. Hope you are all ready for summer. I’m as ready as I’m going to get. In ten days I’m heading for the Big Apple for Romance Writers of America’s annual conference. Good food, a Broadway show, some sightseeing: I’ll make sure to fill you in when I return home to the Burgh.
Okay, so today is Just the Facts Friday and I’m supposed to list a few things nobody knows about me. Wow, that’s pretty hard since my life is somewhat of an open book. A boring open book at that. But here goes:
1. I used to be a picky eater.
Yeah, yeah, sure. I can hear a few snickers out there. If you’ve met me, you’ll agree that I have a few pounds to lose and will eat just about anything placed in front of me. But back in the day, when I wore a size zero pants, I only ate a few food items. Then I turned twenty-one and everything started appealing to me. Weird, but true.
2. I’m addicted to Angry Birds.
I’m not a gamer, but somehow I’ve fallen in love with Angry Birds. Don’t tell my
publisher, but I play this game sometimes instead of writing. Have you tried it? If
you haven’t, don’t start.
3. I want to camp out in the Grand Canyon.
All my friends know that I’m not an outdoors person. In fact, my idea of roughing
It is staying in a hotel without room service. But I really want to camp out for one
night in the Grand Canyon. First, we have to make sure there are no wild animals around or bugs. Or annoying people.
4. My writing music is the soundtrack from “The Phantom of the Opera”.
Don’t ask me why, but I have to listen to that soundtrack when I’m writing. By
the time it’s done, I’ve written at least a thousand words.
5. I’m a softy.
Okay, I’m really giving away all my secrets now. I may display a tough exterior
most of the time, but I really hate confrontation. As a practicing attorney, I’m expected to enjoy arguing, but I don’t. I’d much rather sit down and talk about any disagreements. Don’t tell anyone: it’ll ruin my reputation ;-))
By the way, I have a new story coming out soon. Continuing Legal Education is about two attorneys who find something else to do during a boring legal workshop. Hot, hotter and explosive!
