Shopping for two holidays and two kids … makes for a broke mommy.
Hi guys! I wanted to check with you all and say hi. I'm in my final week of writing draft one of Man Buns, which is coming along nicely ... just like any good pair of buns. I promise my jokes are better in the book.
Anyway, I've had epiphany over the last week and I realized I fill your inboxes when I have releases but I don't stop often to just shoot the shit. I've also noticed a lot of you aren't on Facebook, therefore, you only get my bookish emails, so I apologize for that.
For those of you who are newer to me, I live in MA, just North of Providence, Rhode Island. I have two little boys who are 9 and almost 6. They're wild, and I honestly don't know how I manage the craziness the two of them brew some days, but they are my everything along with my hubs, Josh. Fun fact: he works from home too and we sit about five feet away from each other everyday. We've trained ourselves not to talk much during the day and try pretend like dinner is the time to discuss our days haha. It's weird, but it works for us. He's super supportive of my career and loves helping me come up with new story ideas.
I'm also a graphic designer and run my own company, (shout out to MadHat Books LOL) helping other indie authors. I joke with people and tell them I have a double life. I do sleep somehow, and I'm a hands on mom, so I just go go go. I wouldn't have it any other way, though :).
My favorite food is fried rice and egg rolls. I could eat them every day, morning, noon, and night and never get sick of it.
Ummmm let's see...that's my dog up above. He's actually just a puppy and seven months old. Another boy... All boys here. People ask how I'm able to write from the male point of view and I just giggle. I think I've forgotten how to speak like a female over the last few years, but that's fine. I need to fit in and still maintain control here somehow haha.
So that's me in a nutshell! I'd love to hear about you guys too <3. Or, if you want to know more about me, shoot me and email and ask! I'm friendly and love to talk, and I talk wayyyy too much sometimes, but in a digital world, it's nice to speak to humans and stuff, right?
I hope you're having a fabulous week! I'll be doing my best to check in with funny life stories each week. Maybe I can entertain you while i should be writing. I should probably add procrastinator and squirrel hunter to my job description. Hmm. Yeah. :)
