Meet the author...
What would I like for you to know about me, hmm? Let’s see,
Prince has the biggest musical influence on my life by far.
Purple Rain in 1984, Darling Nikki, forever changed my life, setting me
on a musical path of deep appreciation. My musical taste are wide…..
I LOVE MUSIC!
It really depends on what I’m in the mood for.
I have a real disdain for people that are cruel to animals.
I love dogs but I am allergic to cats however,
I would still love to own one.
I ride or die with my Minnesota Vikings,
although they frustrate the hell out of me.
My all-time favorite show is Breaking Bad, which ruined every other
TV show for me. Although The Sopranos, Sons of Anarchy, and Dexter
are pretty damn dope and high on my list!
You can’t argue with me. The toilet paper roll should go over, not under.
I am stubborn, REALLY STUBBORN! My Chinese Zodiac sign is The Tiger, along with Taurus the Bull… STUBBORN!
I am a homebody and like super hero movies; I tend to favor Marvel more than DC but I enjoy both.
I miss both of my grandmothers a lot; I have so many questions for them now that I’m older.
I hate being cold, I would much rather be hot.
My friendship is not unconditional, I require honesty and respect.
I get scared for my daughters, thinking about this crazy world we live in. My worst fear is my daughters truly not knowing how much they mean to me.
