The TMI Blog Hop is going around again and I decided to play along. Thanks to Debbie the Dog Lady and Yolanda Renee for piquing my interest. This is me, from A to Z
A lady never tells her age and, even if she did, she would tell the age she prefers.
B: Biggest fear
Running out of time. I have so many books to read and things to make I feel like I'll never accomplish all of it.
C: Current time
11:46 a.m. I should be working but here I am.
D: Drink you last had
Iced coffee--it's sitting right beside me now.
E: Every day starts with
Coffee and my Inspiration for Writers post on Facebook and Twitter
F: Favorite Song
I tend to prefer classical music, especially baroque but I've told my family that I want the Rolling Stones' "Hony-Tonk Woman" played at my funeral.
G: Ghosts, are they real?
I think so. I write ghost stories and have often sensed another's presence.
St. Marys, Pennsylvania. The inspiration for my Marienstadt books.
I: In love with
Gloucester. I've been her 20 years and love it more every day.
J: Jealous of?
Authors who are good at book marketing. It is a constant challenge for me.
K: Killed someone?
Only on the page--but I'm a serial killer there.
L: Last time you cried?
I have been weepy a lot lately although mostly happy tears. I watched a video of a very talented young man yesterday that had me in tears.
M: Middle name
N: Number of siblings
Seven--three brothers, four sisters
O: One wish
That people would just calm down and think before reacting
P: Person you last called?
My brother just to see how he was doing. He was recently in the hospital.
Q: Question you're always asked
How did you come to live in Gloucester?
R: Reason to smile
Many of them--many, many, many. Not the least of which is the cardinal outside my window, chirping his little heart out.
S: Sounds that annoy you
Loud television. I'm not a TV person and get crabby when I am reading and can hear someone else's television blasting.
T: Time you woke up
7:00 which is quite early for me.
U: Underwear color
Black--it makes me feel dangerous and mysterious
V: Vacation destination
My back porch. I live in a town that people save all year to come to for a week
W: Worst habit
Procrastination--I don't know why I do that but it annoys me.
X: X-Rays you've had
Not many. Mostly when I had oral surgery.
Y: Your favorite food
Homemade rhubarb pie with strawberry ice cream! Ever since I was a kid. I used to ask for it instead of birthday cake.
Z: Zodiac sign
