Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, I’m definitely a Canadian West-coaster. You can occasionally catch me saying, ‘eh’, but that’s probably the extent of my obvious Canadianness. No, I don’t live in an igloo!
The various jobs I hold are: mommy, wife, writer, site administrator/webmaster (I own and run The Official Jeaniene Frost Fansite), graphic artist (cover art/author promo work), chauffeur, maid, tech-nerd, waitress (or as my daughter likes to call out while eating dinner — SERVER!), hopeless romantic, star gazer, storm watcher, sensitive crab.
I didn’t realize I needed to be writing until the summer of 2007. Wow, that was a shocker! And not because it was such a stretch but because I hadn’t thought of it sooner. No wonder secretly my favorite class in highschool was English, despite the typical response of all jocks — GYM! That year I read a book that inspired me to write some embarrassing *mumbles* fanfiction, but let’s not talk about that! Later that same year I was talked into doing NaNoWriMo and I won! 50K words in 26 days. It was a religious experience and I knew that I needed to be writing.
The purpose for this blog is not singular, as I had originally planned. When I registered my domain name I had intended this to be a landing page/resume for any interested agents and/or publishing houses. Well getting published isn’t a short journey and neither is completing your book! A year passed since that original plan, and my ideas morphed. I figured I could use this as a place to flex my writing muscles and talk about all things writing related. Well I didn’t get around to that either! I kept thinking, what do I know about writing really? Who’d want to read my posts? Now I realize that I shouldn’t confine myself so much.
So here I am – blogging about: being a mommy, eating well and my Vitamix, adoption and loss, reading and writing, and my graphic design work. I hope you find something you like! Comments and sharing are totally welcome and absolutely appreciated!
