Fact # 1 – I’m left-handed.
Fact # 2 – I’m 6 feet tall.
Fact # 3 – Last summer, Marie and I got matching tattoos to commemorate writing the series. Belle Tempête means beautiful storm in French. It is also the name of a plantation home in our books.
Fact # 4 – I wrote the first draft of ‘The Waiting, Book One’ and ‘The Watching, Book Two’ on my iPhone.
Fact # 5 – I wear dresses or skirts 99.9% of the time. Ironically, when I was 13, I wrote a poem entitled ‘I Detest Wearing A Dress.’
Fact # 6 – Marie and I played Barbies until I was at least 14. I credit our EPIC all day and all night Barbie playing sprees with spurring our creativity. Our Barbies weren’t normal…they had serious issues (divorce, death, murder, Amazonian warriors, Sea World trainers, rock stars)
Fact # 7 – One of my most favorite things to do is drive around with Terri and take pictures of beautiful things….sunsets, trees, bridges….whatever…..we just love driving around together.
Fact # 8 – I’ve never loved an animal the way I love my Bowie Bleux. We found her on a back road in Franklin Parish after seeing one of my home health patients. She was 2.2 pounds, and took my heart from the first moment I held her little malnourished butt. By the way, her name is pronounced Boo-e Blue and she is a Blue Leopard Catahoula Cur.
Fact # 9 – Despite having two wolves in the backyard (the largest being over 160#), I am terrified of German Shepherds.
Fact # 10 – I’m a huge believer that everything happens for a reason. Everything. Bad things. Good things. In-between things. God has a plan and purpose for it all.
