I suppose the easiest way to do this is to start at the beginning. 

I was born in a tiny town in Michigan, right on the shoreline of Lake Michigan. I always said I'd leave here. But I haven't. Not yet. I have a love/hate relationship with Michigan. I love the spring and summer, and even autumn, but I loathe winters. And I loathe being cold. And I loathe driving like a turtle. 

I now live in a charmingly retro house. Which is the nice way of saying my house is over eighty years old and has hit the crotchety stage.

Some of the basics

I'm 29. A mother of two. A wife to one. I like pens. And books. And photographs. And Peeps (the chicks!).

More exciting details

I have fallen out/off of a moving vehicle twice. Once when I was five and didn't want to go to the babysitters (it was more like I lept from the vehicle). And again when I was fourteen and was dared to do it. No broken bones, but a lot of scrapes and I swear I'll never do it again. Unless I absolutely have to. 

I've never been to a concert. Does that make me lame?

I knew how to drive by the time I was twelve (and often did). 

Despite the fact that I live close to one of the best freshwater beaches, I rarely swim because of an irrational fear of dark water. 

The first book I ever wrote was about vampires.
