I mark "sent" AFTER I send and rate as soon as I receive a swap. If you don't get a swap I've marked as "sent" please let me know ASAP and I will be happy to check the delivery confirmation and/or re-send!
Note: I just had a sudden, unexpected appendectomy. I am out of the hospital but staying at my parents' place so they can keep an eye on me. I haven't been home or to my PO box since, but will catch up with ratings as soon as possible.
I'm battling some health problems and my tummy is not happy right now. Please do not send me food, as I cannot eat it and would not want it to be wasted. Thanks!

All About Me:
I live in Northern VA. I'm a writer, a BookCrosser, a Markeroni historic marker hunter, a postcard collector & Postcrosser, an Eeyore collector, an adult fan of LEGO, a nature lover, a vegetarian since 1999, a nerdfighter, a proud Hufflepuff, a Hokie, a webmistress, a serious fangirl (Harry Potter, Supernatural, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Highlander, you name it!).
I lead a local Writers' Roundtable group (I write primarily young adult post-apocalyptic or urban fantasy fiction, contemporary LGBT short stories, and fanfiction). I volunteer at two local libraries every week. I co-organize the local Harry Potter Alliance chapter (Carpe Futurum: Seize the Future!). I am the assistant organizer of my local Harry Potter meetup group (DADA). And occasionally I have time to sleep.
I don't cook. I am working on a 101 Things in 1001 Days project. And I'm not allowed to buy any more geeky T-shirts because I have too many (but if I WERE to get one, my size is Men's Large or Women's cut X-Large).
Current obsession: TV show Supernatural!
When asked what my favorite book is, I usually say it's Ishmael by Daniel Quinn... but it's closely followed by Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Types of Books I Love: young adult, graphic novels, LGBTQ, time travel, urban fantasy, dystopian, tv/movie tie-ins (of my favorite fandoms)
Some Favorite YA Books: Harry Potter series (Rowling), Looking for Alaska (Green), Paper Towns (Green), An Abundance of Katherines(Green), Will Grayson Will Grayson (Green-are you sensing a pattern?), A Separate Peace (Knowles), The Outsiders (S.E. Hinton), Inkworld series (Funke), Hunger Games series (Collins), The Giver (Lowry), Uglies series (Scott Westerfeld), The Wind Blows Backward (Downing Hahn), Lord of the Flies (Golding)
Other YA Authors I like: Neil Gaiman, Edward Bloor, Robert Cormier, Maureen Johnson, David Levithan, Sherman Alexie, Laurie Halse Anderson, Holly Black, Philip Pullman, Kate Dicamillo, John Boyne
I'll read just about anything if it interests me. I don't read many biographies or much nonfiction. I don't read many mysteries or hard-core sci-fi, but I like the genres. I don't read romances (unless it's LGBTQ or there's hockey involved)

Lately, I write a variety of things:
I do mostly paper crafts and some stuffies (basic sewing).
I'm not going to tell you what to send/what not to send. I honestly appreciate everything I get because I'm a Hufflepuff and it's the effort & thought that counts most in my book (plus I eventually find a use for everything). Create & send whatever you wish. However...
Again, thank you for thinking of me and reading this. Send what you want and if it falls into a category on this list, just know I'll regift it to someone else.
My sweet Maxwell kitty passed away on 8/26/13. Two new kitties have joined my family as of November 2015. They're sisters named Cassie & Charlie. Cassie has a funny tummy (just like her mommy) and can't eat treats. But they both love toys like jingle balls and mousies. Items with catnip in them where the catnip doesn't come out (like catnip pouches) would be well-loved.
It feels awful to be flaked on when I put so much heart into every swap I do!
