It all started in 3rd grade when my teacher read us Harry Potter in class. As soon as she finished I immediately begged my mom to buy me the next one and I've had a book in my hand ever since.
I'm a glutton for all things paranormal, but I never restrict myself to one genre. I usually read several books at a time and I have to keep notes so I don't mix story-lines up. I've always been a bit put off by contemporaries because they are just to real for me. I like to live in the fantastic.
I started this blog back in March of 2011 as a way to keep up with my writing while I wasn't in school. I've found that not only has blogging helped me open up more as a person, but my writing skills have drastically improved. I fall more in love with the community every day and I spend more time on Twitter than should be considered healthy.
I'm a motherfucking college graduate with a B.A. in English! BOO YA!
I work at Books Inc., a local independent bookstore that also hosts many Not Your Mother's Book Club events. I'm a children's specialist most of the time, but I also coordinate the Not Your Mother's ACTUAL Book Club, a YA book club. I'm also in charge of organizing our monthly story time, where I read books to kiddies and then we do crafty things. I spend most of my time hiding in the kid's section, handing out recommendations left and right and encouraging readers of all ages. When I have the time, I sometimes like to rearrange the tables or sit on the floor and do arts and crafts.
I'm really nice, I swear, and I love making new friends so let's chat!
