Award winning author, LJ Evans, lives in the California Central Valley with her husband, daughter, and the three terrors called cats. She's been writing, almost as a compulsion, since she was a little girl and will often pull the car over to write when a song lyric strikes her. While she currently spends her days teaching 1st grade in a local public school, she spends her free time reading and writing, as well as binge watching original shows like The Crown, Victoria, and Stranger Things.

But Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher because I found this post of hers about their romance and how she would never have thought when they were filming "That's 70 Show" that he would be the love of her life. Plus, he says all kinds of sweet things about her too. It all came together in my head about dreams and missed chances.(less)
