Hop In and Follow Me friday #7


Blogger hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy-for-Books.

This week's question:

"What book are you looking forward to being published in 2011? What are you anticipating about it being published?


The only book that I have been waiting for is Michelle Moran's Lady Tussaud.

I know it will be a great book. I've read her other books, and they are always more than fascinating.

Read an excerpt from Lady Tussaud here, and read more about Michelle Moran and her other books here.

This week's question:

What was/is your favorite subject in school?

Being a writer, it would be fabulous if I said my English class was my favorite. As it was, I failed in English...miserably. But not nearly as much as I failed in Math. Truth be told, I wasn't the best student. I was terribly shy, I never spoke up when I had a question, I never told the teacher that I didn't understand something, and I clammed up for tests. How sad.

That aside, I excelled in one thing...art. Want a portrait of your dead great grandmother? I was your girl...still am. I could draw, sketch, chalk, charcoal like no bodies business. But I hated it. I positively hated it. At the time, is seemed like art was the only thing I could do well. And how the heck was I going to use that when I grew up? ;)

History was my fav. Except for when my 9th grade history teacher yelled at me. Punk.

  1. I am so jealous. I am an extremely creative person, but it so hard for me to focus my energy. Free-hand art is so hard for me.

  8. I can really relate, I was terribly shy and still am to a point. So I really wasn't one to hold my hand up they had to call on me in class.
