The Versatile Blogger Award


Thanks so much to onceuponabookshelf for nominating me! I’ve seen this one floating around and am thrilled to have been tagged! So here we go. πŸ™‚

The Rules:

  1. Show the award on your blog
  2. Thank the person that has nominated you.
  3. Share 7 different facts about yourself
  4. Nominate 15Β blogs of your choice
  5. Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination

7 Different Facts About Me:

  1. Despite my actual age, I am often mistaken for a high school student and it really bugs me sometimes. Everyone tells me to take it as a compliment, but it’s hard when old men hit on you THINKING you’re under 18. O.o
  2. I attended the University of Arizona and double majored in English and Creative Writing. (I actually made the Dean’s List.) We always joked that it was the third most worthless major right behind Art and Philosophy… Ironically enough, these were the other two majors I considered.
  3. I have a ginger cat who yowls like you’re trying to drown him even when you’re only patting him on the head. He goes by a multitude of names, including: Jungle Kitty, Tiger Cat, Kitter Cat, Hobie Cat, and sometimes just Cat. He was found wandering the lake and is a chest cuddler.
  4. I am a horror movie addict. B-grade is my specialty, though I’m loving the new horror movies out these days – The Conjuring is one of my favorites. Sinister is the only one that’s truly frightened me though and I will always love (the original) A Nightmare on Elm Street series (one is a classic, two was terrible, three was surprisingly good, four was okay, five was worthless, and six did better than expected).
  5. My last name on here is that of my Significant Other. We have been together for just over four years now and are talking seriously about getting a ring.
  6. I hate, hate, hate driving. It gives me serious anxiety, especially if there is anyone in the car with me. I can do it, but if I never had to again, I would be a happy camper.
  7. I am a freelance ghostwriter who is usually hired to write smut motorcycle romance novels, which I hate. My personal writing is YA and falls into one of fourΒ categories: Paranormal, Horror, Dystopian, or Contemporary. (Sometimes they overlap.) My two main projects are featuring a dying witch girl and a dystopian novel about a girl without fear.

  1. Thank you for nominating me! πŸ™‚
    I know what you mean about age though – funnily enough I was never asked for ID BEFORE I turned 18. But I’m getting asked more and more often the older I get (I’m gonna be 25 next week – here comes the quarte-life crisis) πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ It actually amuses me though, so it’s fine.

      1. Guess what… I already wrote the post – i think I’ll probably post it next week at the latest (I have some other tag posts to post first and I don’t want to post them all at once) – and one of the facts I listed is that I used to smoke and quit earlier this year πŸ˜€

      2. I usually save posts and schedule them for later that way stuff is going up when I don’t have any time to write that day. I will check it out when I get a min! Congrats on quitting! Huge deal. Good for you and crazy because I only quit like two years ago!

  2. I don’t care if I’ve been nominated…it’s just nice that you thought of me!!
    If it makes you feel any better, I have an 18 year old who keeps messaging me: he’s kinda cute so I haven’t stopped it, but he is WAY too young for me. I’m a baby cougar.
    You use his last name but aren’t married? Interesting: you guys must be pretty sure it’s gonna happen!!
    One of these days I hope you mail me one of your ghostwritten stories…I totally want to read it even if it’s smut, because it’s your book!! (In my eyes)
    Love you more all the time! Knowing more about you makes you a-mazing!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
