I was going to put my bio from the back of the book on here, but then I thought, “What fun is that?” Let’s face it: the author bios in books are pretty dry. “Penelope Pringlewater went to Persephone University, and then she wrote Peter’s Progress, Pounds of Poppies, Puppy Perspective, and Phenomenal Pariahs.” She lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her husband, Pablo, two children: Pamela and Pacey, and three lemurs named Fluffy, Rex, and Fido.”
So, if you’ve clicked on this page, you obviously have some interest in knowing who I am. Why, I’m not sure, but you want to know, and I’m going to tell you.
I have four kids. Yes, FOUR. No, none of them are twins. Yes, I’m very busy. Yes, it is VERY hard to find time to write. Yes, I do know how to use birth control. Yes, I love my large family very much. No, it will not be getting any bigger. (So Mom, you can stop worrying now…)
I was a child bride, and I’ve been married now for over fourteen years.
In addition to a husband and four kids, I also live with a dog named Max, three cats named Polly, Harriet, and Lucky, a hamster named Bugs, and two fish. There were three fish until recently, but I don’t want to talk about it…
I grew up in Peterborough, Ontario. I don’t live there anymore. Since I left for university (I went to York University, in the north part of Toronto) I’ve lived in Toronto, in Innisfil, in Oshawa, in Whitby, and in Scugog Township. All of those are in Ontario, Canada, for anyone who’s geographically-challenged. I also spent a year in the wilds of New Jersey. I’m not kidding, either. There were bears.
I wrote for a website called Reality News Online for quite a while. I might again, if the mood strikes me. I’m also an editor for Confessions of a Pop Culture Addict. I have one other blog, Cyn for Prime Minister. I don’t blog very often, though, so don’t get all excited. I’ll try to be better about it.
I’m opinionated, but also very shy. I try to fake it, though.
I have weird pop culture obsessions, that few other people get, so when I find someone who understands me, I make sure to keep them in my life. If you like The Partridge Family in a sick, I have a crush on David Cassidy circa 1971 kinda way, we’ll be friends for life.
I like chocolate. A lot. And chocolate peanut butter ice cream. And How I Met Your Mother. And YOU. I really like you, because you took the time to read all of this.
