Julie Particka aka Selestial aka a pretty great author friend of mine and fellow OWG member has awarded me a Versital Blogger award. Now I have to tell you seven interesting facts about myself.
And nominate a few bloggers myself.
First the nominations: Mardel of Rabid Reader fame
And Tammy Crosby aka CNDWMN
You two have to post 7 interesting facts now too 🙂 bwahahaha. Tammy is a fellow OWG member, great beta reader and awesome banner artist. Mardel is a wonderful book reviewer, friend and proof reader 🙂
1. Like Selestial, Halloween is my favorite Holiday, followed closely by Thanksgiving. I love holidays that are all about parities and food and dressing up. Talk like a Pirate day is pretty cool too. lol.
2. I’m a sailor. 🙂 No, really, I race one design dingies.
3. I have a horde. three cats, one dog and a horse and a boyfriend. Quite the horde.
4. this one might not come as a surprise, but I have a vampire jedi living in my head. Recently my friend also told me that I had a vampire shoulder angel and a Jedi shoulder angel.
5. I’ve been writing vampire fiction since before it was popular. Kat, aka Ekatarine, is one of my favorite characters and she will see publication some day 🙂 (she’s the vampire Jedi living in my head. Long story that.)
6. I’m convinced that shaving your legs (if you’re a girl) is completely overrated.
7. I’m crazy. Oh, wait… that’s common knowledge. I waited ten years to get a dog, even though I’ve wanted one ever since I left home. I wanted to make sure I had as close to a good lifestyle for a dog as I could. Especially since I knew I wanted an active, intelligent dog. Yeah, I got a Border Collie, doesn’t get more active or intelligent than that 🙂
