Six Things About Me:

1.  I am both a writer and the editor in chief for a parenting website.  I work from home, and not only do I love it, but I am a strong advocate of the benefits of both working from home and having a flexible work schedule.

2.  Before the website, I taught English at a couple of our local universities.  It was an amazing career and I am thankful every day that I had a chance to do it.  I am still ABD on my Ph.D. in 20th century American fiction, and I have no regrets about it.  Being a professor was a fantastic experience, but it was just one stop on my journey.

3.  I still read.  A lot.  But the wonderful thing about reading now is that I can read whatever I want: science fiction, YA and MG novels, poetry, literary fiction, classics that I missed, the latest buzz-worthy books.

4.  I probably watch more TV than I should.  I cannot resist a good story.  Also, I really, really wish that I saw more movies in the theater.

5.  Zombies.

6.  As much as the politics of my state make me crazy sometimes, I am truly proud to be a Texan.  The Texas that I know is weird and independent, full of history and strong women, beautiful landscapes and delicious food, and friends and family and love.  I used to want to leave, but now I can’t imagine living anywhere else.  Also?  This.
