I've been on television twice! (the news and a documentary about pickles)

I quit the day job in May 2013 and now make a living as an author and small press owner.

I have seven children. (We're a your's, mine, and ours family).

I expect people to use a bit of common sense.

While I live in Arizona, I want to someday move back to Arkansas.

I pride myself on my sloppy handwriting (A high school civics teacher said those with sloppy handwriting thought faster than their hands could move)

If I were younger, I'd be a storm chaser or forensic investigator.

I knocked "getting a tattoo" off my bucket list recently.

I have more story ideas to write than I probably have years to live.

I LOVE my job.

Sometimes, when I'm writing a funny scene in a book, I laugh out loud then look around to see if anyone caught me. The same thing when writing a sad scene, except I cry.

I LOVE Jesus!

I don't cry easily.

While I found many things humorous, I don't often laugh out loud.

I don't have patience for stupidity.

I don't judge.

I'm harder on myself than anyone else could possibly be.

I think these points very random. :)

  1. Thanks for your openness and honesty. I can relate on some of those points.

  2. I'm curious. I got my first tattoo at age 57 after becoming a breast cancer survivor. I got my second and last tattoo a year after that. Both relating to my cancer (pink ribbon on my ankle, the side I had the cancer on. The other one was a pink ribbon tattoo in the form of a butterfly on the opposite ankle. What kind did you get and where?

    1. I got a fluffy quill with the words "Once Upon a Time" on my left ankle. Congrats on being a survivor
