Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love to laugh--at myself as much as at others. I believe in
social justice and radical tolerance, so I do take some things
seriously, but I tend to dwell on the brighter side of life.
Happiness is a choice after all.
My passion is writing. I'm currently working on a young adult
novel, and I am lucky enough to have a great job where I am
surrounded by creative people while I work on it. When I am not
working (or writing) I'm always trying to learn something new,
whether it's how to knit a blanket, make the perfect bolognese or
use an SLR camera.
I am sort of a foodie, but I can also enjoy a good beer and a
burger. I love to bike and swim and just in general move, but I
always make time to read and catch a favorite show. I love to
explore our beautiful city, but I would also love to stay in with
that special person.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in administration and I write in my free time. Ideally at a
certain point I will be able to support myself solely through
writing and teaching.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
cooking and fixing things. I'm the youngest of seven and I think
the only way my parents could handle so many kids was to teach us
all to be useful and self-sufficient.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my hair. It's nonstop awesome.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-A book (whichever one I'm reading)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sometimes I think about irreverent things like Zombies. I'm 99.9%
certain that a zombie apocalypse is an impossibility, but that .1%
keeps me up nights. Mostly, I think about more practical things
like how I can get the characters of my story to do what I want or
how I can have a positive impact on the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at the movies or at a bar with friends.
