By day I am the branch manager of our local credit union, by night I am either: reading, writing, parenting, cooking or cleaning. Usually in that order, thankfully my kids are old enough to make PB&J, Ramen noodles and eggs. And my husband likes to clean.....likes might be too strong of a word, but he cleans (more than I do).
In 2012 my husband had a pretty nasty accident, while trying to clean the gutters out he slid off the roof from the second story. Long sad story made short, our lives changed that day in so many ways. We have made the best of our situation and will always be thankful that he came through alive. It hasn't always been easy, which is when and why I turned to books. I have a million different quotes about reading....and they are all true.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy books and that's kind of the same thing
"One more chapter..." I whispered two hours ago.
If I had a dollar for every time I felt more emotion for a fictional character than people in real life, I could pay for the psychiatric help I obviously need.
My boyfriend is battery operated. (By a Kindle. You perv.)
I have a sleeping disorder...it's called reading
You get my point, right???
My books read total for 2014, 2015 and year to date 2016: 1,400I will deny, deny, deny that I have spent that much money on books. Kindle Unlimited, right!
June 14, 2016 after approximately 23 (minus a couple pregnancies) years as a smoker I quit! Woo hoo. Hardest damn thing I've ever done. After the initial shock to my system I quickly discovered, my brain couldn't sit still long enough to keep up with reading like I was use to. Instead, it wandered and created plot twists that never took place.
Fast forward to today....I am still reading. I still stop what I am doing to read the new releases from all my FAVORITES! I have just added writing my own to the mix. I've joined a few groups on goodreads and beta read for others that are in the same boat as me. My debut novel is currently in the hands of the editor. I'm excited, I'm nervous and I'm anxious to share it with the world.
