I hate being cold, very strange for living in Eastern Washington. During the cold winter months, I prefer to wrapped up in a warm quilt with a good book and an endless supply of hot chocolate and marshmallows. Never one for coordination and balance, skiing and ice skating have never really been my forte. Give me a warm coat, a thick pair of pants, a well greased sled and a decent hill and I am all over it.
In the summer, I like picnics in the park or outdoor concerts and festivals. I am not big on camping unless it includes a camper/trailer/motorhome/cabin with running water. If not you will find me sleeping in the backseat of my car with the heater running! I like hiking and hanging out at the lake. I burn easily so I tend to limit my outdoor activities or make sure to have the highest protection sunblock available.
I am a self-proclaimed geek. I love Marvel comics, the Dark Knight, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and even Star Trek. I play video games, albeit not well and I will so kick your ass at Monopoly.
I love movies, especially Disney. There are very few Disney feature animation films that I haven't seen. I love superhero movies as well. Saw The Avengers at least five times in theatres and had it pre-ordered. I know I'll have to work the next morning but I will be at the midnight showings of Iron Man 3 and Star Trek: Into Darkness.

My iPod and are are joined at the hip. I have 3,223 songs that range from soundtracks to rap. I have a not so hidden obession with Josh Groban. I have all of his albums and listen to them all the time.
2. The Huffington Post/BBC News App.
3. My USB flash drive. Has all the drafts of my books on it.
4. Cable/Internet. Netflix is a blessing and a curse.
5. My family and friends.
6. The New Orleans Saints. You can move me to Washington State but you can't make me root for the Seahawks.
