Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a geek girl, who likes comics, scifi, fantasy and other geeks.
I also have a passionate love of college football (SEC all the
way!), baseball and professional cycling. I have random
I spend a huge chunk of time reading middle grade novels and
picture books for work because I'm a children's librarian. I am
super up to date on what's popular with the average 4 year old.
Grown-ups? Well, I have seen adult books in the past year, does
I'm an introvert and yet I've chosen to work in a public sphere,
possibly because I'm a glutton for punishment?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a children's librarian. Which means I spend a good portion of
my day being a rock star to the under 3 set.
I've started running somewhat recently. Ideally I'd like to run a
5K in the fall and a 10K next spring.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My laugh. It's loud and I laugh easily.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

This means my "favorite" thing doesn't change as often as I change
my socks. My favorite book? I have a lot, but ones I can go back to
over and over would be Good Omens by Gaiman and Pratchett and A
Wrinkle in Time by L'Engle.
My favorite super hero is Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers is my
I'm a Marvel girl but I'm reading a lot of Image stuff right now as
well. Sex Criminals and Pretty Deadly are my two new favorites.
Really I feel like I'm building the DeFraction kids' college
I'm not watching a huge amount of tv lately, which is weird for me.
I like kind of typical slightly geeky shows, Sleepy Hollow,
Stargate, Teen Wolf (yes Teen Wolf it's my secret shame).
Justified, Community. A random Canadian sitcom called Corner
If I'm not listening to the radio, I've been listening to a lot of
Athens, GA based bands lately. I used to live there and I've been
missing that sense of place. So a lot of Soul Miner's Daughter, and
Neutral Milk Hotel. Some REM, some B52s.
I love this trend of banjos in everything. There's nothing a banjo
can't make sound better.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Television, books, my friends, my family, the internet and clothes,
I guess. I'm having trouble thinking of a sixth thing, and I don't
really want to be naked all the time. I'd need a lot of sunscreen
and I didn't names sunscreen as one of my six things. Damn it I
should have put "sunscreen" instead of "friends".
Is it bad that I put television before my family? This really isn't
a list in order of importance. It's not like I think tv is more
important than family. I mean certainly not Immediate family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

If you're kind of geeky or don't mind that I am. Or maybe you have
a burning desire to talk about middle grade fiction. I don't know.
I won't judge. Come say hi.
