#PitchWars Mentee Bio

#PitchWars Mentee Bio

As something fun, I thought perhaps I would tell you a bit about myself….in memes. This is a first, so bear with me. 

I had a lovely suggestion from Brighton Walsh about the #pitchwars mentee bios (cause I wanted to be cool, but I couldn’t think of anything good) and I’m totally taking her up on it. 

Here’s 10 things you should know about me (as a mentee):

1. I write Young Adult and Middle Grade. The novel I’m submitting is middle grade, and I think its awesome! I’m really excited at the prospect of people reading it! (also, terrified.)

2. I actually enjoy the editing process. Weird, I know, but I do. I will happily work my butt off and beat this manuscript into submission.
3. I will present a calm, cool, and collected face to the world while the mentors are picking their choices.
Really, though, I’ll look like this:
4. Let’s see, what else to tell you… I work pretty fast. Once I’m sent an email with feedback, whether from CPs, friends, or beta readers, I’m all about getting things done. I have to limit my email access to my author account during the day, because otherwise I’m like this:
5. I regularly drink my weight in tea. Its a problem. Especially since I don’t drink caffeine anymore. Have you ever tried finding anything that’s caffeine free in a restaurant? I hate lemon-lime anything, so I always hope they have root beer, otherwise I’m drinking water.

6. Speaking of lemon-lime, lemons are evil. I don’t like limes either, but lemons are BLECK! Seriously. Everyone laughs at me for my hate of the puckery lemon.

7. I am a high school technology education teacher. That’s part of the reason I write scifi, fantasy, horror and etc. I get enough “real life” at school. I don’t really want to write about it too. 

8. ALL of the mentors look like they would be amazing to work with. Choosing was unbelievably hard, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed I’ve chosen well. (Though, seriously, if anyone picks me, I’ll be incredibly lucky) At times, I felt a little like this about the whole process of picking my submission list:
9. But really, if anyone even takes a second look at my manuscript, I’ll probably collapse into a blubbering pile on the couch. And then rush to my computer to check my email a million times. Heck, I’m going to do that from the second I submit until they release the picks in September!

10. Regardless of whether or not I get chosen, #pitchwars is an amazing opportunity, and you meet some really great, awesome, and supportive people out there. It is a fabulous way to talk to authors you never would have otherwise and support each other in the writing world, because it can be a very lonely space. 

There it is – my first attempt at a meme anything, or a gif anything! If you want to know anything else about me, I’ll be happy to answer – just leave me a comment. Otherwise, I’ll see you on Twitter, and I wish all the participants of #pitchwars the best of luck! 

Also, let’s not forget a big thanks to Brenda Drake and all the fabulous people who have made this possible!

  1. Your use of memes was masterful! Never know it was your first time. 😉 Best of luck with PitchWars and the revision process!

  2. Great use of GIF’s! What is your book about? I envy MG writers because I can’t nail the voice, it’s YA for me! Good luck!

    1. Thanks! Its a MG space adventure… sort of! 🙂 I love writing my YAs, but MGs are much more fun sometimes! 🙂

  3. Hola! Good luck with the contest! I’ll be entering for YA Fantasy. The mentors look awesome, don’t they!?!?!

  4. I’d never know this was your first time to use gifs. The Lucy one is very creative. Goof luck in your contest!

  5. Your gifs and such are awesome! I also drink entirely too much tea. It’s nice to meet you, and best of luck!

  6. Ooh, MG SF, how cool! There was never enough of it when I was a kid. Good luck!!

    Love the sound of your Wed muse challenge, btw. If there’s still room on that bandwagon, count me in!

  7. Good luck! Looked around the site–so many projects! But I so don’t understand this lemon/lime aversion. One of my greatest disappointments in life is that a lemon/lime hybrid tree we bought was a weak producer and then stopped altogether after about two years.
