About me

Gender Female
Industry Museums or Libraries
Occupation Writer/Photographer/Librarian
Introduction Me? I'm writing a book, ahem, SEVERAL books, on the subject. I'm a memoirist. And a librarian(got the degree but no job yet), actor, photographer, mommy, crocheter/cross-stitcher, half-marathoner, among myriad other things. I grew up all over the U.S, mostly back and forth between AR and GA. I graduated at 16 and went straight to college in Missouri. I quit, traveled around on Greyhounds, shacking up with one loser boyfriend after another and finally getting pregnant. Gave that one up for adoption (NOT a sad story--VERY HAPPY). Went back to school, eventually went to France, learned French, married a Frenchy, went to grad school, got pregnant again, moved to Texas, had a baby boy 6 weeks early (he's big now though and doing fine), wrote a couple of books (yet to be published), started working in a library, decided I liked it, went back to school to get my second Master's, got pregnant again, started writing for a magazine, had that baby (big fat girl). Moved to Charlotte, NC, had another fat girl. We're all currently living in France for a couple of years, practicing our hippie lifestyle for when we move back to the States and buy our little farm.
Interests See "About Me" and add a few hundred pages of lists (among them...On the side, when I have time, I volunteer at a theatre where I usually do tech stuff because I've temporarily lost my stage presence--I'm not worried, it's around here somewhere). I also donate breastmilk to Mother's Milk Bank at Austin, and my ponytail every two years to Locks of Love.
Favorite Movies Puh-lease! Y'all don't have enough room for all of 'em!
Favorite Music Yikes...The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Don Omar, Daddy Yankee, John Legend, Amos Lee, The Dixie Chicks, Marcy Playground, Kelly Clarkson, Alanis Morrissette (sp?), Shakira, Pink, Christina Aguilera circa Stripped, Missy Elliot, Salt & Pepa, Eminem, Harry Connick Jr., Michael Buble, India Arie, Norah Jones, Jacques Brel, Gorillaz, Pascal Obispo, Alejandro Sanz, Louise Attaque... Oh my god, do you want me to go ON?
Favorite Books Aw, c'mon! I mostly read young adult books right now since I'm studying to become a li-ba-ri-an... Some good ones lately are Looking for Alaska, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, How I Paid For College, Peeps, So B. It, Artemis Fowl, Private Peaceful and The Lightning Thief... I like the juvenile serieseseses Harry Potter and A Series of Unfortunate Events.
