I thought it might be fun to re-write my profile like a wanted ad on a dating website:
MUST HATE CATS...
I like long walks in a steady rain, chai lattes and driving fast. I'd rather wear boxing gloves five days a week than pantyhose, and I love to travel (especially if I don't have to pay for it!) I have a peculiar talent for ruining oatmeal and I repel all manner of plantlife and technology. My four children finally are taller and bigger than me though I like to think I'm still smarter. I am currently repressing the visual artist inside of me so I have time to write. Paranormal romance is my preferred genre at the moment, but I used to say that about historical fiction which now makes me want to vomit (excepting Jane Austen, of course). I am unpublished, overaged, under-paid and overworked. I am rarely PC, always OCD and have a love/hate relationship with Autocorrect. The South is my home and I've never understood people who don't drink sweet iced tea.
Looking for an agent or publisher, but will settle for a date with the enigmatic Editor's Desk.
Anything by Austen, Rand, Poe, Meyers, Doyle, Maberry, Clare, Sparks, Pearson, Barry, Collins or Lewis (as in C.S.), occasionally Jodi Piccoult.
I have some NEW favorites: Cinder & the Lunar Chronicles, Beautiful Creatures & books following, Open Minds & the Mindjack Trilogy, Under the Never Sky, City of Bones & the whole series, Exceptional by Jess Petosa, Blemished Series, Divergence Saga.
For my kids, we loved Peter and the Starcatchers, Series of Unfortunate Events, Percy Jackson, Etiquette & Espionage and books following, as well as The Sisters Grimm volumes.
