I'm Jen, you know, just in case you weren't sure. There are quite a few
FACT: I read. Like, a lot. I like to read different categories and genres, except for horror and erotica, and my passion is for YA. It all began back in 2010 with a sparkly vampire. I have no regrets.
FACT: I am a fast reader. So much so, my family teases me about being a Rapid Reader. Thank you, comdeian Brian Reagan for that title. ;)
FACT: I review books but as of now, my TBR pile
FACT: I have two big chunks of pink in my hair. On purpose. I've had it for so long now I often forget it's there. This has not stopped strangers from pulling on it to see if it's real or clip-on. It's real and it hurts when you pull it.
FACT: I am the wife of one husband and the mother of two boys which means I am completely outnumbered in my house. I love it, like 97% of the time. That other 3% though...because boys can be gross.
FACT: I write. I have written three full YA novels (currently unpublished) and have 10 more partially finished ones sitting on my computer. I've been through the agent rejection process for one of the novels and will be going through it again with the others. Soonish. Please send chocolate.
FACT: I like to bake (and sell) cupcakes. The process is
FACT: I have a mild form of Dyslexia that affects my ability to math correctly, sometimes. Basically, my brain likes to switch the last sequence of numbers on me because it's a jerk.
FACT: I suffer from migraines. They are often debilitating and always annoying. Yes, I have tried everything under the sun to treat/ward off/thwart them, and I appreciate all of the helpful advice. Really, I do. But please don't expect me to have the same results as your husband's grandmother's sister's cousin had.
FACT: I love Jesus and I homeschool my boys. This does not mean I wear a denim jumper, drive a bus or dress like the other members of my family. That would be weird considering they're boys and we only have two kids. Nor does it mean I will attempt to thump you over the head with a Bible or try to baptize you in the fire of the Holy Spirit.
It DOES mean I will treat you with love and respect--even if/when we disagree--and I will expect you to do the same with me. You know, Golden Rule and all.
FACT: If we end up at the same bookish event, there is a 110% chance I will have cupcakes with me. Please don't hesitate to ask me for one. But only if you want to no pressure or anything.
