Pens, Books, and Paper …. Oh my!

Cheesy title, yes? Haha!

I’m obsessed with books …. anything book related really. I mean, if anyone mentions the word “book” my ears perk up like an excited dog who was just asked if they want to go for a walk. The world stops and I’m instantly intrigued. That’s good right? It’s a healthy obsession …. Ha Ha! I’m on my way to becoming a book hoarder.

I’m an author. I have three books published on Amazon. You should check them out! Seriously, get on it! 😛 I’ll post the links at the bottom of this post. They’re only 99cents for the eBooks. I’d say that’s reasonably under-priced for an author. A lot of time and work goes into those books …. let’s not mention how much money gets put into it (cries on the inside).

Anyway, I go by the pen names C.A. Jonelle and Piper Thomas, but my real name is Kylie. My last name is none of your business! 😛 I’m married to a police officer (my own man in uniform ladies! *swoon*). We’ve been together since 2001 and married since 2008. That’s a long time! Amazing! We have two beautiful daughters who are as sassy as their mother. My poor hubby. He’s going to have fun when these stinkers are teenagers! They are huge daddy’s girls.

Rock music will always be my poison. Like a Storm, Shaman’s Harvest …. just to name a couple. Like a Storm is my ultimate fave. They’re all hot. Like super gorgeous. Oh, and I guess they sing okay too. Nah, they’re awesome singers. I could seriously listen to them all day.

I’m addicted to my iPad Mini and Bob’s Burgers (I’m 34 and I watch cartoons, yes). Gordon Ramsay is sexy (you heard me!). Hell’s Kitchen is my guilty pleasure show (I seriously hate reality TV, but can’t get enough of Hell’s Kitchen). I love collecting pens and journals. Potatoes are the best thing in the world. Harry Potter is the most amazing freaking thing in the world. Stephen King is a master at his craft. Kylie Scott is my most favorite author (check out her Stage Dive and Dive Bar series! They are the best!).

I’ve written rock band romance and I’m working on a suspense/thriller/horror …. whatever …. I hate labels. I have a super vivid imagination and unfortunately the best things I come up with are while I’m in the shower. Why …. just why? I need a dry erase board to hang up in there.

I have anxiety and I’m mostly an introvert. Writing and reading is a great form of therapy.

I’m a brat.

I worry about time too much.

Spiders scare the absolute crap out of me. Those things need to disappear.

There’s really not much more to say, except this blog will be totally random. Hence the name, Random Raven. I’ll post stories, excerpts from projects I’m working on, stupid crap I find interesting that you probably won’t, and whatever else I come up with. This is mainly for fun and to hopefully get you interested in me and my writing. I’m going to leave you with a quote from Howie Mandel that I have written pretty much on everything I own because it’s the truest thing I’ve ever heard:

“The things that we work the hardest for, the things that cause us the most pain are the things that pay off the most in the end.”

Well, I am off to do Mom stuff! Have a great day everyone!
