Hi! For those of you who aren't familiar with me, I'm B.E. and to kick off my joining The Killer Chicks family, I thought I'd post a little bit of 'get to know ya' stuff. In fact, I think I'll borrow a suggestion from Clarice's post on Friday (Do You Interview?) and answer the questions she suggested we use to get to know our characters better - you know, just to start the ball rolling.
Here goes nuthin'...
What is the worst thing your character has done to someone, and why?
I cheated on a boyfriend in college. Our relationship was already on
the fast track downhill, but I really should've had the courage to break
it off before I spent the night with someone else. Not proud of
myself, but like I always say 'I am not the same gal I was back then.'
What makes your character laugh out loud?
Funny animal videos get me every time. There's this one of a cat
sitting on the arm of a couch watching the fishtank. Out of the blue,
it jumps at the fish, hits the side of the tank and slides down. Yeah, I
have a sick sense of humor sometimes. I blame a childhood spent
devoted to Bugs Bunny cartoons.
If your character could be any animal what would it be?
I'd be a bird. Probably a raptor of some kind - like a Merlin or a
Redtail. Or I might become a Great Horned Owl. They're too cool. (And
in case you haven't guessed, I'm a bird nerd.)
What are you lying to yourself about? That
I'll ever stick to some kind of exercise routine. I'm profoundly lazy
and even though I have the best of intentions, I know myself. Or as my
father always meant to say (because this is too clean a blog to say what
he really said), "Intentions are for doodle." My father - he was a
wise man, but no Yoda.
Okay, now that the fun's out of
the way, here's a little bit about me that isn't in the bio. I've been
at this writing thing for going on 9 years this month, and have cranked
out 13 novel length manuscripts. And yeah, I'm not published yet. Not
for lack of trying, mind you, but they say a big part of getting
published is luck. Luck and I have a sporadic love/hate relationship.
books are in the genres of suspense (naturally, since I'm here at The
Killer Chicks), dystopian/futuristic/post-apocalyptic, and urban
fantasy. Which means I not only kill things in present time, but I also
kill things in the future and in an alternate magical place. ;o)
I hope you'll continue to come back to The Killer Chicks and visit me
from to time. (And if you like what you see, check out my blogs.)
it's your turn. How would you answer the character interview
questions? Or if you're uncomfortable with those, tell us a little
about yourself. Or, to paraphrase a quote from The Muppet Christmas
Carol, "Come in so we can know you better, man!" (Cuz, yeah, I'm the
kind of killer who quotes the Muppets.)
