Hello there, WickedCurveBall74! (your picture scared the hell out of me, thanks!)
Hiya! I'll try to keep this short, but I'm a little on the wordy side, so....
I'll be 38 towards the end of June, but, we don't need to talk about that. *Ahem* I'm a married mom of 2 boys, 14 and 12 - both of whom I love dearly, but they both drive me batty on a daily basis. So, yeah, Mom's in desperate need of a little vacay time! Needless to say, I'm super excited to go to Vegas (again...it's been a little while)! Ironically enough, it was a combination of my youngest son (who was in 3rd grade at the time) begging me to rent the movie Twilight, and some lovely ladies at work (both much older than me) begging me to read the books, that sent me on this obsessive/compulsive swan-dive into the deep waters of the Twilight Saga! And oh lord, did they create a monster in me. I read the books within 2 weeks, fell in love with a certain gorgeous British boy, and the rest is history. I was introduced to this little gem called Fanfiction after hearing about it and my small obsession turned into a full blown lifestyle! I was hooked, and the talent of these unknown authors blew me away. Always loving to write myself and dabbling a little, I decided to take a stab at it. I came up with a few little things, but the first one I started, Forsaken In My Mind's Past, is my WIP baby and one I've been writing for 2 years. Whew, I'll feel truly accomplished once I finish it! I was invited (and talked into going) to Vegas by a fantastic friend, and I'm looking forward to meeting other authors, readers, etc. etc. I'm ready for some fun!
By the way, the pic I've included is of me on my last trip to Vegas (October 2010) getting a little cozy with the dark prince. Well...I am Wicked after all!
See ya there!
Thanks so much, Wendy! We can't wait to meet you in Vegas!! (Don't bring that guy in the picture with you.)
