Born in Spokane Washington, she spent most of her formative years dreaming of telling stories in the big city. So much so that she believed that if she followed the Broadway that ran through her town far enough, she would eventually arrive in NYC. She wasnt too bright.

It took her longer than she imagined to wind up in the big cityand then only adjacently. Before that she took her turn as student at the University of Montana were she learned the difference between facts (i.e. the only things that mattered for her degree in journalism) and fiction (i.e. the only things that mattered to her). A few credits short of her degree, she decided she was tired of trees and mountains and moved to Texas. A decision she almost instantly regretted.

First book of 2020 and can't believe it was a non-fiction book--and audio too--like, who even am I? But, I just had to. My BiL asked me what exactly I loved so much about Mayor Pete and I couldn't give him a reason that wasn't just a gut feeling. Now ...more

Nick Hornby
“It's no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently or if your favorite films wouldn't even speak to each other if they met at a party.”
Nick Hornby

Nick Hornby
“How do people, like, not curse? How is it possible? There are these gaps in speech where you just have to put a "fuck." I'll tell you who the most admirable people in the world are: newscasters. If that was me, I'd be like, "And the motherfuckers flew the fucking plane right into the Twin Towers." How could you not, if you're a human being? Maybe they're not so admirable. Maybe they're robot zombies.”
Nick Hornby, A Long Way Down

James Branch Cabell
“The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is true.”
James Branch Cabell, The Silver Stallion

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

Mark Twain
“Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.”
Mark Twain
