Upon reviewing my live journal profile, I realized that I have more schools than friends. That is too pathetic so I guess Anne Marie is right, I should actually start journaling! (AM, I bet you would’ve used a “pathetic” mood icon rather than “apathetic” if there were one!)
Well, hello, everyone! I’m going to post my bio I just sent to the Penguin website which is a little silly but says a lot in not too many words:
Kathryn Erskine spent many years as a lawyer before realizing that she’d rather write things that people might actually enjoy reading. She grew up mostly overseas and attended eight different schools, her favorite being the Hogwarts-type castle in Scotland. The faculty, of course, did not consist of wizards, although . . . how did the headmistress know that it was “the wee redhead” who led the campaign to free the mice from the biology lab? Erskine draws on her childhood—and her second childhood through her children—for her stories. She still loves to travel but nowadays most trips tend to be local, such as basketball and tennis courts, occasional emergency room visits, and the natural food store for very healthy organic chocolate with “life saving” flavonoids.
I’m getting to know some of you from reading your posts and occasionally even responding to them. I look forward to being more a part of the on-line world this year!
