About Me

I'm Cheryl and I live in the Tidewater area of Virginia. I have a husband of twenty-five years, three daughters, two grandchildren and a dog.

Favorite Music

I like smooth jazz, R&B, pop, house, techno, classical and country. I'm not sure about steam punk music. It may take me a while to get into it.

Favorite Books

My favorite books are what ever I'm currently reading. I read several different books at the same time. I read romance, SF, mysteries, biographies and history books.

I've been reading SF. I like SF that have several books in the series.

Favorite Television

I love NCIS, DIY, the Cooking Channel and HGTV.

Favorite Movies

I love Sabrina, the remake with Harrison Ford.

Mulan, a great Disney movie. You have a strong female character that saves the day. Great role model for little girls.

An Affair to Remember, Back Street, and Breakfast at Tiffany's for the old ones.

Writing

Every year I sign up for National Write a Book in a Month. Each year my word count improves. The first year I wrote 5000 words. Last year I made 16450 words. This is a record for me. In 2011, I broke my record by by 500 more words. I wrote about 16900. I'm always hoping to hit the 50,000 words. So my goal is always 50000 words. Every year I increase my count and work toward 50k.

Favorite Crafts

I like sewing and paint old furniture to give it new life.

Sport I follow

I enjoy watching Women's Soccer. My two youngest daughters played soccer through high school. My youngest daughter plays college soccer and I travel to watch her games.

Comment: OMG! Thank you so much for my mascot! He already has a name, Archer. I'm totally in love with him! And the chocolates are going to be saved as rewards for some of my self-imposed goals for NaNo. I wish I could give more than one heart for this. <3 <3 <3
Response: I'm glad you like Archer and the chocolates.

Comment: Thanks for sending your swap--many months late but still appreciated and full of thoughtful insight. The author's name rings a bell for me, but I know I haven't read this particular book of hers. I might have to track it down now!

Comment: I am overwhelmed by the size of this package. So many hearts! Thank you for the NaNo stickers--I just got a new laptop to use for NaNo and it desperately needs some decoration. The items all look amazing. I think I'll open the first when I get home from my trip to LA on Saturday. THANK YOU!

Comment: I wish you'd spent more time on the quality or communicated with me ahead of time to tell me it would be late. It was a clever concept and I hope it inspires you to work on this piece of yours.
