Who are you?

Writing can be a lonely endeavor.

Some days I'm like a hermit--one bursting to share everything I've penned, but frightened to pull back the curtain and expose the stitching before it's finished. Sometimes I forget there's a big world beyond my dual monitors and stack of reference books. Truth is, I'm feeling a bit...lonely.

So let's be social eh?

Hello. *waving* (Yes, I'm hiding behind my computer.) I like cheese, writing, mountains, and periodically answer to "chicken".

I also occasionally pen a song or two. (You can listen to a few here.)

But today isn't about me. It's about you.

Yes, you.

Who are you? Leave a comment and tell us a little about yourself. I'm excited to get to know you!

1. What are you working on right now?
2. What's your favorite cheese?
3. Where is the neatest place you've lived/would like to live and why?
4. If you could have one wish, what would it be?
5. What are you especially good at?


  1. Okay, let's see...
    1. my WIP is a MG fantasy
    2. mozarella or muenster
    3. I'd love to live in Hawaii. It feels like home to me.
    4. Hmm, one wish? How about ten more wishes
    5. adapting to other cultures


  2. What fun! Great idea.

    1) My current WIP is a YA historical fantasy about the Apache Kid legend.
    2) All of them. Seriously.
    3) I love Kauai. And Paris. It's tough to choose.
    4) I'd wish for three more wishes. And world peace, naturally.
    5) Making my husband laugh.

  3. My current work is for a short story for the Mirror Shards (augmented reality) anthology.
    My favourite cheese is stilton.
    neatest place, well certainly not my house, ooh, that's a tricky one. Yike, as I'm always the one responsible for the neatness, I've got to say nowhere. oooh, I get it. Neatest -- as in coolest. Let's say London.
    one wish= more time.
    I'm good at: working, writing all the time. I don't care if I'm goodat it or not. I just love it.



  4. 1. A traumatic bit of backstory for my hard sci fi universe
    2. Feta!
    3. If I'm living there, it ain't neat (as in tidy) ;)
    4. I think I'd pass on the wish, actually.
    5. I seem to be good at gentling troubled cats and/or feral kittens. I work with a local rescue group.

  5. @Pk Muenster is the best. =)

    @Liz Yay for cheese fanatics! --And what a great talent. Laughter is the key to happiness.

    @Deborah Your project sounds fascinating. I'm with you on the writing thing--writing is just too awesome.

    @L Feta is pretty great.

  6. 1. my current WIP is YA, paranormal. It has natural disasters, witchcraft and teens, and a beach.
    2. I would say smoked Gouda? (sorry if I misspelled)
    3. Living in China or Japan would do the job. I'm seriously fascinated by both cultures.
    4. See my mom.
    5. Illustrating.

  7. Great Idea. Retweeting this. And the name is Jeff BTW
    1. What are you working on right now? Just started on the second draft of mystery novel.
    2. What's your favorite cheese? Pepper Jack any and everything that is spicy
    3. Where is the neatest place you've lived/would like to live and why? A year on Diego Garcia, a small island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, where chickens, cats, and donkeys run free. Where sand crabs are as big as hubcaps. Where the seven most deadliest coral live. Where dolphins play in your boat’s wake. Where you’re not afraid to dance in the rain. Where tuna caught and cooked is the best seafood in the world.
    4. If you could have one wish, what would it be? To know what I don’t know. To don’t know what I know.
    5. What are you especially good at? Teach kids to play sports

  8. 1. What am I not working on? Edits on my 'finished' manuscript, and adding more to my YA paranormal romance.
    2. Gruyere.
    3. I'd like to live closer to the mountains, maybe Denver?
    4. I'm with Akoss on this one, to see my mom again.
    5. Finding resourceful solutions to every day problems.

    BTW - My bff and I use 'chicken' as a term of endearment.


Hit me with your cheese!
