Hello dear reader!
Paige is an aspiring author who is nearing the 30-year mark and working on her very first novels. She hopes to be able to call herself an author soon. For now, we’ll go with writer. She’s never written a novel and, prior to starting this blog, had not written a short story of any kind since she was nineteen.
Commence random fact sharing!
Paige is a born and bred Texan now living in a single-wide trailer in Anchorage, Alaska with quite an amazing view of the Chugach mountain range.
She is afraid of crickets (thankfully there are none in Anchorage outside of pet stores where they are sold to feed reptiles), heights, the dark, spiders when they’re indoors and/or attempt physical contact with her, charging moose, and animatronics.
This evil animatronic monkey was the bane of her existence for well over a year:
Her favorite color is teal.
She has quite a lot of tattoos and a few piercings… And plans to get more.
Paige is all kinds of opinionated, but tends to be able to see all sides and any middle ground of most arguments.
She has a marked propensity for sarcasm, dark and low-brow humor, and tirades about people who do stupid or irresponsible things.
She has an above average IQ, which does not prevent her from doing stupid or irresponsible things, but does cause her to occasionally go on a tear about the stupidity she deems other people to have. Her mother is a blonde; she has blonde moments and blames her mother for them.
Paige is a bit of a feminist; not the die hard sort that won’t wear a dress or let a man open a jar for her, but the sort that believes a woman can stand on her own two feet and has the right to choose what she wants to do with her life and body. Paige is currently engaged to marry her best friend and wants to stay home and raise children (both her own and fosters) while her man works outside the home.
She’s a pantheist of sorts and is morally opposed to non-organic and genetically engineered foods.
Paige has a minor addiction to mind-numbing reality television.
She loves thunderstorms.
She may or may not have spent several years of her adult life role-playing within the realm of an MMORPG. She was a theatre/debate/choir/German club nerd in high school.
She did not graduate college because she’s yet to find something she loves enough to major in and has trouble balancing work and school. Paige loves to learn about anything and everything and plans to continue to take random college courses as they peak her interest.
She has a fondness for genealogy and lineage societies (she happens to qualify as or is a member of quite a few).
Paige will probably continue adding random trivia about herself to this page whenever the mood strikes.
