10 Things About Me
1. I like beer. Really... I like it a lot! All brands and flavors. My favorite is a combo, the Black & Tan.
2. I have five kids. Two of them are my step kids, but I have helped raise them since they were 2 & 4, and they are now 14 & 16. My step daughter lives with us, so we have four kids on a daily basis. They are 16, 14, 14, 9, and 4 years old.
3. I have been in the Air Force for a combined total of 14 years (in Aug). I got out of the Air Force for 2 1/2 years and came back in.
4. While I was out of the Air Force, I managed restaurants in Las Vegas. I worked in two restaurants in The Mirage and at The Buffet at Wynn Las Vegas. Being a restaurant manager in Las Vegas is no bueno.
5. I am an only child. When I was a kid I used to pretend that I had a twin sister named Stephanie, and I was Stephanie.
6. I made up stories when I was in third grade that scared my friend so much, that I was no longer allowed to spend the night at their house.
7. I am getting really compulsive about checking Twitter and ReTweeting people. It's a problem.
8. I was in love with River Phoenix and his death still devastates me.
9. Traffic on the 405 makes me angry every day, but I write some of my best scenes while I'm stuck in it.
10. I love this community of writers, bloggers, and readers, more than I ever imagined I would.

you Go Stephanie...I mean Bethany!ReplyDelete
Stephanie was so much cooler than I was.Delete
Thanks, Bethany! I used to pretend I had a twin too!! I blame it on the Parent Trap movie with Hailey Mills- I figured she'd find me someday!ReplyDelete
I loved the Parent Trap!
Thanks for your serviceReplyDelete
You're very welcome, Joe.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the lovely nomination, gal! It's so nice to get to know more about you. :) I sure don't miss my commute most days, but I do miss the solitary writing time!ReplyDelete
Ohmygawd, your 10 facts are a crack up! You were Stephanie. I think I might be laughing about that for a long, long time. Thanks for the nomination! Now I have to remember it... I'm terrible about forgetting to follow-through on awards.ReplyDelete
I'm so glad I know you (in real life, no less!). I hope to see you (in real life!) super soon.
Me too! I am going to go to the RWA Conf - not as a conferee, but to stalk Nora Roberts, so maybe I'll see you there! :)
