Who is Paige Nolley?

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:


Paige is absolutely terrified by animatronics. This monkey moves. And talks.

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. Β 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.

    My mother is a blonde; I have blonde moments and blame her for them.
    I love this. Not that it’s hard when I’m sleep-deprived and sugared up, but this made me actually laugh out loud (not just lol). πŸ™‚

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog, always glad to connect with a fellow Texan πŸ™‚

    Hi Paige, thanks for visiting my blog and for following. I wish you good luck with your novel progress. Your living environment and the view sounds very inspiring.

    • Paige Nolley says:

      Thanks! The view is inspiring. Especially when clouds descend to cover the mountains and my fiancΓ© and I can shout about aliens having stolen the mountains. πŸ™‚

  5. I, too, loathe crickets and love teal. You’re fascinating and your writing delights me. I’m so glad we connected via Twitter! Keep on stringing those sentences together, and you’ll have a whole novel hot off the press in no time. Can’t wait to watch your progress. πŸ™‚ Cheers!

      Thanks for stopping by and for the kind words! Teal was my favorite color long before I learned about PCOS. Serendipitous, that.

      I’m glad we met up on twitter too. Book is slow going. I fear it’ll be a year before the first draft is done. I don’t like to read short books or novellas, so I refuse to write them. πŸ™‚
