I was visiting my friend Jane Porter's website and clicked on her blog because I was curious what form it would take. As many of you know, blogging is a new thing for me and while I love some blogs, I can't abide others. Supposedly clever snarkiness leaves me cold. But Jane's blog was highly entertaining and I wasn't surprised. She's a deep person and that is reflected in how much of herself she reveals on the blog. Also in the way she does it. Jane is a complex woman with a beautiful heart. That shows in her blog.
Reading it made me wish mine was more like that, but what if it was? You might learn things about me...stuff like I think the feminist movement has a lot to answer for - both good and bad, that my favorite color is yellow because it makes me think of sunlight, but I wear more pink than Pinky Tuskadero from "Happy Days". You might figure out that I love my kids, but I'm far from a perfect parent, that my best friends are my sisters, that my mom is demanding and wonderful and whole bunch of stuff in between, that my husband is sexier than The Rock and that I read more romance than nonfiction, even though I love both. You might learn that I'm an activist at heart, too honest for my own good sometimes and blindingly intolerant of negativity. I am fiercely loyal to my friends and will defend those that I love to the last breath.
I'm not sure if I'm ready for you to learn all that stuff about me, but on the other hand...if you read my books, you've got some inklings already. So, I'm committed to sharing not just books I think you ought to give a try, but myself as well.
We'll see how it goes...
