Hiya!! My name is Becca, and I’m also a proud member of The Book Bunnies. I was told to make a 10 about me list and I do as I’m told, so here’s 10 things you should know about me…
#1- I have my own blog, BookNerdBecca, which I started almost a year ago.
#2- First and foremost , I am a beta. It has been a love of mine since I was an English teacher helping my students learn to write, but it became my favorite thing to do when Michelle Hodkin asked me to read her now titled September 2011 release The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. Seeing her success and now the success of my other writers (3 now with book deals), it makes me SO happy!
#3- I also became a Book Bunny during NaNoWriMo last year. This was my second attempt. In 2009, I stopped working on my NaNo to help Michelle, last year I ignored every human save my writing people and did nothing other than eat, go to work, sleep occasionally, and write my ass off (Yes, feel bad for my husband). These guys were a HUGE influence on my writing.
#4- I love to write historical fiction and romances and I enjoy writing snarky, fun characters. I live and breathe sarcasm. I will however, read just about any kind of romance. I really love well though out, complex stories that make your heart thump and your stomach drop and causes you to yell at your book. It doesn’t really matter what genre it is. I just want that gut reaction.
#5- Right now, I’m working on my NaNo from last year for Camp NaNo in August. It is a historical romance set in Germany during WWII. I also have several side projects and several beta clients that I work with all the time.
#6- I’m an animal lover and you’ll notice they pop up in pretty much all of my writing. I feel like it’s not a normal home if there isn’t a creature in it. All homes, even treehouses and castles and boats, they all need animals. I personally have three fur-kids.
#7- My daily life is busy as I’m a sugarmomma taking care of the furry people and my husband who live with me in Arizona. My husband just graduated from school, so I’m hoping he’ll find a good job and then I can have a sugardaddy who lets me write and read all day!
#8- I have a bit of an obsession. I can relate any episode of FRIENDS to any life situation, no matter what. I can also quote episodes of FRIENDS ad nauseum, you can ask my husband. Show me the first minute of an episode and I will tell you exactly what happens. It’s a disease I tell you!
#9- Fun lil’ tidbits- I am obsessed with my phone and feel naked if it isn’t on me or in sight, I knit but not well, I love smut but I’m a sap, I’m lactose intolerant and allergic to chocolate, but I’ll eat chocolate ice cream like it’s running out, and I’ll slam on my brakes for animals whether it’s a dog or a lizard in the road.
#10- If you wanna chat me up, please do! You can find me on Twitter @booknerdbecca. <3
