I am new to the world of blogging.
Here are the answers to the questions you asked me:
Where did you grow up? I grew up on a farm on the outskirts of Augusta, MO. I am the fourth child out of eight.
Where do you live now? I live in Callao, MO with my husband Alex, our energetic dog, Elle and our calm, easy going cat, Jethro.
What is your favorite meal? I have two favorite meals. My grandpa’s fried chicken with gravy and riced potatoes, corn, green beans, homemade dinner rolls with homemade butter. Change the fried chicken to roast beef–both are my favorite.
What do you do for exercise? I chase the chickens around the yard. Otherwise, I try to walk.
What are you currently reading? I’m not much on reading. Once in awhile, I’ll read the newspaper.
Name a favorite movie? Blindside. Any movie with Sandra Bullock in it is a favorite of mine.
Who influences you as a writer? I want to write children’s stories. So any children’s author such as Richard Scarry, Dr. Suess, Judy Blume. James Patterson is another writer I like.
Name one person you would like to meet. Reba McEntire. She is a down home country woman. She’s honest and I love her songs. Of course, I sing along.
Where would you like to visit? Any place that has mountains.
What do you do to relax? Listen to the radio and write while sitting in my glider chair. Or I listen to the radio and bake.
