Hi! I'm the newbie on the blog. Just thought I give you more info about me than what's on the author page.
As you can tell by my picture, our son plays baseball. Hubs is the head coach so we are in the beginning of the season. Undefeated at 3-0 but the season is young. Our son is 8 yrs old going on 25 and thinks he knows everything. LOL! Being a 3rd grader sure makes them smarter now a days. I know I wasn't that smart when I was a 3rd grader. *snort*
One thing about baseball season, it means flip flops, shorts and allergies. As I write this, my head has been pounding for the last two days. Stupid trees! Yes, I have tree allergies and I live in East Texas. Doomed, doomed I say. Anywoos...baseball is serious stuff in the small town I live in. Its almost like Friday Night Lights during the fall. I have to remind my husband that the players are only 7 and 8. Cut them some slack. And remember, Jeter was this age once. Not everyone is going to hit, catch the ball but at least they don't play in the dirt anymore. I miss t-ball but not that much.
I'm not one of those moms that eats, sleeps and breathes baseball. I don't go to practice, tell my husband how to manage the team and the parents. I let him do it all but I'm here if he needs my help. Believe it or not, my husband is an introvert. He needs this to come out of his shell. I do keep the book on game days and I'm the official scorekeeper most games and this makes me happy. I consider all the other times Brian and daddy time. My husband works weird and sometimes long hours, so they need that time together without mom hanging around. Plus, Brian is coming to that age where I'm embarrassing. What's wrong with dancing in the aisles at the grocery store? I can't help it if I like the song. He he!
I'm pretty much an open book. You can ask me anything and I'll be honest with you. I have an author page on Facebook but its easier to just friend me. I'm always around and love to talk. Just ask Krista Ames.
On the writing front...I'm currently working on a YA (set in Texas/Oklahoma), a small town contemporary in Oklahoma and a romantic suspense with paranormal elements in Chicago.
