I am the founder and blogger here at Fantasy is More Fun. I’m a native of upstate New York, but happily left behind the extreme cold for Dallas/Ft. Worth Texas when I was thirteen with my family and consider myself a Texan. I had to leave for 2 1/2 years while I attended Grad school in St. Louis, but I’m now back, happily living in Carrollton, TX. I”m still attending Grad School in St. Louis (Washington University in St. Louis), but I’m at the stage where I can work where I want and you know I FLED for Texas!
I’ve loved reading as long as I can remember knowing how and will always pick a book over watching tv, a movie, or sometimes even spending time with friends/family. I caught the blogging bug when I started this blog in July 2013 and it takes up most of my spare time (that’s not spent reading). When I’m not reading or blogging, I’m usually spending time with my boyfriend of 8 years, his son, or my brother (who happens to be the design genius behind my blog). My dog, Buffy (yes, she’s named for Buffy the Vampire Slayer my all-time favorite show) is always by my side, whether I’m reading, blogging, or just hanging – and she’ll probably show up in a few blog posts.
As a little girl I wanted to be author and even wrote a short story that I sent to a publisher. I did this all on my own, just taking the address out of my favorite Babysitter’s Club book and asking them to make it into a book for other people to read for me. Although my first attempt at publishing wasn’t successful, I cherished that rejection letter for years and maybe someday I’ll fulfill that childhood dream of writing my own books. I recently finished the first draft of my first novel – Sweeter Than Death – and really hope that I’ll be able to make a go of it someday not to far away. But in the meantime, I enjoy sharing my love of books with others and will often showcase indie authors that I admire for doing what it takes to make their dreams to write come true.
I can’t remember a time that I wasn’t reading at least one book and I’ve often longed for people that I could share that joy with. That’s what I love so much about blogging and communities like Goodreads and Shelfari – I finally found people who love to read as much as I do and who enjoy the kind of books I do!
I am an avid reader and writer, but I have NO webdesign/html experience what-so-ever. So I’m hoping that as time passes you’ll get to watch my blog grow up and look better and better all the time. Thanks for taking the adventure with me!
