I write poetry and books for children, have two children, two cats, and two dogs (but only one spouse), and I've been a nerdfighter since birth. My current works in progress include a chapter book about garden gnomes and a Verse Portrait of Jane Austen (telling the story of her life through period poetry).
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
There is not enough space or time to list them all. They include: the 6 completed Austen novels; A Tale of Two Cities and A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens; the Harry Potter series; the published novels of John Green; RULES by Cynthia Lord; A Crooked Kind of Perfect by Linda Urban; and The Lord of the Rings.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
A scarf, which looks very immigrant-circa-1920, but there it is.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Hi Kelly :) thanks so much for posting that link :) Very helpful, especially for people who are unable to find a copy of the book! Thank you! Will we see you on the discussion thread for the book this month?
Hi, Kelly! I visited your website and read about your dabbling with being a lawyer when you grow up. I've been there with my originally chosen profession, too, but wish I'd figured out a little earlier what all of the tradeoffs would be. I could have saved myself some time. Nice when you finally figure it out though, isn't it?
Congratulations on your success in writing/publishing so far and I hope you continue to receive good feedback and positive (read "acceptance") comments about your work.
