So, I’ll tell you what I know ‘About’ me so far. I’m left-handed – a few nuns said this wasn’t a good sign. I’m 5’9 & 3/4″ and wanted to be Kolchak, The Night Stalker but look and sing like Bobbie Gentry. I married a giant man whose thighs are bigger than mine. I
own have two teens I still enjoy having around and have own two dogs: one German Shepherd, one Dachshund who are lucky they’re handsome…
I was an Art Director for Prentice Hall, Educational Publishing. At present, among other things, I’m a substitute teacher. Textbooks I worked on 27 years ago stalk me today – I think they laugh sometimes. I occasionally sell my art and continually strive to sell my art for more than it costs to create. I write a monthly column for the local paper. I’ve written over nine manuscripts in ten years for the YA/MR fantasy market. Oh, and I give children’s art lessons because I love their untainted self-expression.
So to summarize: I’m still left-handed. I think I’m shrinking. The husband is still giant, the kids want to be. At 5 AM, I don’t like my dogs. I enjoy creating art and giving children’s art lessons. I hope to sell more personal art. Never got to be Kolchak, but love drawing creatures today. I dream of getting published. Textbooks stalk me. I can’t sing like Bobby Gentry, and I have a banjo I can’t play. I enjoy reading great books and still love swinging a baseball bat. I don’t enjoy cooking but wish I did. And as far as the rest goes, I’m willing to figure it out (please be patient-the giant husband and children are).
Thank you ever so much for visiting my little blog cabin and for making the trip all the way over here. That nasty traffic light in the center of town is a killer.
