3. I walk the block every evening. Takes about 23 minutes. :sweatdrop:

4. I have 5 more years teaching before I can write full time. (In case you're wondering, I already have 32 years under my belt, but I'm not eligible yet for full retirement.) :no:

5. I write to instrumental soundtracks. I create "albums" for each of my books, and listen to them while I'm working. :tv1:

Neat idea to get to know an author. It ought to be a regular posting!

Here's 5 random things about me:

1. I love reality shows. I'm hooked on Survivor, Real Housewives, Amazing Race.

2. I wrote my first "novel" in the fifth grade for a class assignment. (I say "novel" because it was 30 handwritten pages).

3. My favorite food is spaghetti.

4. I like dogs, but I prefer cats. I have two cats.

5. I photograph beach stones.

Thanks for the fun meme!

1) I have a huge crush on the hero in my upcoming novel from EC, <em>Sheet Music</em>. I can't get him out of my head to the point it's making it difficult to work on my wip. *head desk*

2) I am studying to be a digital librarian.

3) My favorite movies are <em>Notting Hill</em>, <em>Juno</em>, and <em>Pride and Prejudice</em> (A&E version with Colin Firth).

4) I studied acting in NYC in the late 1980's and early 1990's.

5) I have a B.A. in English with a focus on 19th century women authors (Austen & the Brontes, for instance).

Oooh! I love Notting Hill, too! It's on my list of Romantic Movies with HEAs.

Interesting list you have there, Tibby. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Linda!

I think I've watched <em>Notting Hill</em> a bazillion times! It's so much a part of my subconscious, apparently, that I've had readers comment that <em>Sheet Music</em> reminds them of the movie, although the plot bears little resemblance beyond the fame aspect. lol
