Why, Thank You!

The fabulous Miss Cole gave me another award today! In case I didn’t fully impart to you her awesome, trust me: SHE. IS. AWESOME. She was my first commenter ever and I owe a lot of my readership to her! I can’t wait till she’s published so I can read her books. She’s tantalized us on her blog and I can’t wait to get the whole story.

So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to the stellar MISS COLE for reading my blog, awarding me gifts, and being awesome. ^_^

The 7×7 award has categories! So I don’t have to come up with random facts about myself. I get to share some of my past posts in a yearbook superlatives style.

Most Beautiful: Probably RTW: Wide Open Spaces for the gorgeous images of wind generators in Wyoming I stole borrowed from my talented cousin, Michelle.

Most Helpful: I don’t know if it was especially helpful to y’all, but Wear Your Heart on Your Page was inspired by some of the most helpful advice I’ve ever been given.

Most Popular: By Most Hits: Why I Chose to Get a Low-Res MFA. I posted it on my program’s Facebook page, so it’s received a lot of hits. By Most Comments: my most recent RTW post, RTW: MY Road Trip, Holla!

Most Controversial: That’s Why They Call Them Business … Cards didn’t stir up a lot of argument, but the gif could be controversial (if you’re not familiar with Flight of the Conchords).

Most Successful: Probably my first post, aka Post the First (oh yeah, I’m original), because I was finally starting my author blog. Also, I got my very first comment ever from Miss Cole!

Most Underrated: I had so much fun writing this post and it got very few hits or comments: Health Warning.

Most Prideworthy: Well, I have many posts that I love, but I think the one I’m most proud of is Why Writers Should Be Like (the perhaps mythical version of) Christopher Walken. Why this one? I likened writing to Christopher Walken!

That was a fun award to do. Now it’s my turn to pass on the love:

I write speculative fiction inspired by mythos from around the world, complex family dynamics, and my own experiences living with mental illness. After earning my BA in Linguistics from Brigham Young University in 2008, I received my MFA in Creative Writing from Converse College in 2012. I live in Denver, where my husband and I spend countless hours chasing our three young sons (and sometimes catching them!). I collect tarot decks, dye my hair mermaid colors, and procrastinate by decorating my home. My debut novel, Feathers Sharp as Knives, releases on May 2, 2023.
