On July 16th, I turned 34 years old. (Yay for cancers!) I've been married to the man of my dreams since April of 2007. Together, we have 5 boys: Micheal (11), Nigel (12), Matthew (13), Joshua (14), and Austin (17). Not to mention Miss Meow, Simba, and Hunter, the cats and pup. Yes, my life is crazy and I thank the powers above that my hair isn't completely gray yet. LOL
When I was young, I was a total bookworm. I would spend every evening in my room, curled up on my bed with a good book. After I had my boys, my love of reading got lost in the shuffle. Now that they are older and not requiring as much attention, I have gotten back to my first love, reading!
The first book that kept me up all night was "Salem's Lot" by Stephen King. I couldn't put it down until I knew for sure that damn vampire was dead. LOL Some of the other books I loved as a child were "The Secret Garden" by Frances Hodgson Burnett and "The Phantom Tollbooth" by Norton Juster. Basically, any fantasy story that would sweep me up and plant me into another world. As I hit my teenage years, my reading shifted to stories that involved more challenges, but still involved fantasy worlds and creatures. Anything with elves, dwarfs, or mages was a sure win with me.
Now that I'm older, my true love is vampires. There is just something about that dangerous, heart stopping, sexiness that I can't get away from. Of course, I love any good paranormal romance, but vamps will always be my #1.
Up until a few months ago, I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to be when I grow up. (If I decide to. lol) I have been taking online college courses for a couple of years (on and off), but never had any true direction. Finally, I realize that I would love to work in the publishing industry.
Besides reading, I'm a very creative person. I run an Etsy shop called The Happy Soul where I sell my creations and photographs that I take here in northern Michigan.
