About Me

I'm a 27 year old who writes young adult books. I've always thought swaps were really fun, but I never ended up getting good results with any that I was a part of.

My biggest hobby is knitting! I love anything to do with yarn, though, especially wool and other natural fibers. I crochet too, and recently learned to cross stitch. I also love painting, working on altered books, cooking, and baking. I spend a lot of time daydreaming.

I used to work at a craft store, so I can think of basically ten things to do with just about anything in your typical craft store!

Favorite Music

Bob Dylan is my all-time favorite. I've been a fan since I was in the womb, apparently. Spencer Krug (Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown, etc) is my second favorite musician. I like indie-rock, indie-pop, synth-pop (Friendly Fires, Cut Copy, etc), and I have a huge soft spot for bands with British singers (Pulp especially).

My Last.FM username is Hyz, so check that out if you want more information.

Favorite Books

I love just about any YA realistic fiction. Courtney Summers, C.K. Kelly Martin, Amy Reed, Jennifer Brown. Love them all!

I'm mostly interested in memoirs (Wasted, Madness, Hurry Down Sunshine, etc), especially those about recovery or addiction or psychiatric conditions. I'm also interested in some more literary fiction, but it comes and goes.

And of course, I do love Harry Potter. Watership Down was my childhood favorite.

Favorite Movies

Remember the Titans, Wristcutters, Jeux d'enfants, Sunshine, Goodbye Lenin!, 2:37, and any cheesy ABC family Christmas Movie!

Things I like...

cats, birds (especially owls and cockatiels), yarn, socks, nail polish, coffee, loose tea (not green though), dark chocolate, gummy bears, recipes, chapstick, sunflowers, winter, cold, ice, snow, bare trees, black and white polka dots, pearls, brass, argyle, green, mustard yellow, brown, teal, rusty orange, communist and socialist propaganda, charms and pendants, craft supplies in general.

I can always, always use more yarn, more knitting notions, ribbon, buttons, embroidery thread, scraps of cardstock paper, embellishments, paints, etc

Please don't send me...

religious paraphernalia, anything disney-related, anything geared to little kids (cartoons, lisa frank, hello kitty, etc), pink or pale colored things, cutesy stuff, cheap-o acrylic yarn, milk chocolate, stamps, foreign currency.

also, nothing involving cranberries or pumpkin, please, i am allergic to them.
