I am a 30-something vegan, mom, and army wife from New England. After being stationed in NC for almost five years, we're super excited to be in northern NY!
I always loved reading, but after all the reading I was forced to do in high school and college, I forgot what I liked to read. I spent years not really reading books anymore (can you imagine? So sad) but eventually Twilight came out. A friend heard I liked YA (I didn't even know what YA was yet) and sent me a bunch of books, including the first two books in the Cassandra Clare Mortal Instruments series. I found a blogger I love and realized that adults can read YA and I dove in.
I've spent the last few years reading all the all the books I could (I read pretty fast, so there have been a lot), interacting with other bloggers and book lovers, and meeting authors (and bringing them cupcakes).
I eventually realized that since I love books so much, I could try writing them, and with a little help from the motivation of NaNoWriMo, I finally started writing (and won NaNo).
