On to the real business for today.

I'm good with all but part 2 there. Things about me...

1. I LOVE CHEESE. That's an easy one. 

2. I have about fifteen nicknames, but the most common are Chicken and Crystal the Pistol. 

3. Unlike my hubby, I vividly remember about 60% of my childhood. (Thus the YA/MG writing angle.) 

4. I learned how to sing by mimicking Sarah Brightman, aided by 4 yrs of voice lessons, and hindered by one of my brothers. (I have 5.) I couldn't open my mouth without him storming, stomping, screaming, threatening. He's probably the reason I persisted--the whole "underdog will conquer" mentality. Incidentally, he's fine with it now.

5. I never had a "clique" or group. My collection of best friends come from very different backgrounds, ethnicities and even countries. (Russia, China, Columbia, and Haiti to name a few.) 

6. My favorite and least favorite place to live was New York City. 

7. Home schooling my 3 kids is the greatest challenge I have yet faced. I waiver on a daily basis, but it's what they need--especially in light of our propensity to move.

8. I quit piano lessons because I was sick of playing other people's music. Six months later (at 13) I wrote down my first composition. Who knew that quitting lessons would one day lead to a FULL BLOWN MUSICAL!!!

Enough about me. Now on to the deserving subjects of today's post!


  1. Congrats! And I never fit in with just one group of friends either - it was a mish-mash.

  2. Thanks for the award! And how tremendously cool that you wrote a musical!! :)

  3. Love the stuff bout you :) And WOW on writing music!!! Thanks for the award *grin*

    The Arrival, Book 1 of the BirthRight trilogy available now

  4. Thanks so very much for the award. Stephanie & I are glad that our book reviews are helpful. WAHOO!

  5. Thank you for thinking of me! I never get things like this. :)

  6. Ah. . . cheese. :) I imagine home schooling three kids would be hard! I'm from a family of three kids. If we had school together, shopping at Staple's for supplies would become weapon shopping.

  7. Congrats on your awards, and to the awardees. Cool about your voice lessons and mimicking Sarah B. :) My daughter listened to her too.


Hit me with your cheese!
