Author Self-Interview! (Fun Facts About Me)


So the idea and questions for this post come from the Usborne “My First Story Writing Book” which is an awesome resource for helping kids learn creative writing skills! I thought it would be fun to answer some of the questions they ask myself and share!

I live with…
My husband, Steve
My 3 cats (Spyder, Mao Mao, and Icky)

The most unusual thing about me is…
I’m a physical and mental trainwreck (who knows what is actually wrong with me???)

My worst fear is…
My husband dying.
Being alone.
Having to support myself entirely.
Spiders getting into my ears.
Getting sicker or being in even more pain.

I feel happy when…
People appreciate and compliment me.
When I am being creative!

My biggest ambition is…
Make more money as a freelance writer/book reviewer (maybe review books for bigger companies).
Work with kids again. Maybe hold more children’s writing workshops in the future.
Grow my blog/vlogs.
Advocate for those with chronic illness and mental illness.
Sell more art on ebay!

My first memory is…
Riding in a stroller and being frustrated that I couldn’t get out!


A Whole New Look at the Right Brained vs Left Brained Debate!

I found parts of this book truly fascinating. Who knew that you could even have a stroke that completely shut down one half of your brain but left the other half functioning normally? Think you are truly left brained or right brained? Find out for sure here!

Some weird things I found out that I could have happily gone forever without knowing

Sometimes reality really is stranger than fiction.  A few things that you might not know that now I wish I didn’t?  Stick around!

*Did you know that there is a restaurant in Taiwan called the “Modern Toilet” which serves all of its customers from bathroom fixtures?  For instance, the commodes are the seats, the urinals are the bowls that the food is served in and the brown and yellow food is served in the shape of a turd.













*Apparently McDonald’s has now gotten to the jungles too.  Take a look at Shackie, an enormous giraffe living in an animal shelter in Tanzania.  Reportedly, Shackie weighs 5,100 pounds, which is quite a bit considering that the average female giraffe weighs around 2,600 pounds.













*Make sure you get plenty of vitamin A…otherwise you might end up like this Indonesian fisherman.













*The blobfish reminds me a lot of Mr. Magoo.  What do you think?  What a honker!

Things I’ve Learned Today

*There is a penis museum in Iceland that just received their first human donation…hmmm. 

*There are Jews who deny that the holocaust happened…or even attempt to justify it.  What kind of self-hating people are they?

*The Mormons have magical underwear.

*Michael Jackson was apparently very spiritual, because some people believe that black people can become white by being holy. 

*Cats can have seizures. 

*The first official book written by an Australian was entitled A Statistical, Historical, and Political Description of the Colony of New South Wales and Its Dependent Settlements in Van Diemen’s Land, With a Particular Enumeration of the Advantages Which These Colonies Offer for Emigration and Their Superiority in Many Respects Over Those Possessed by the United States of America.  Is that a book in itself or what?

*You can buy Easter greeting cards with actual pine trees in them.
