Lies lies lies!

It's no secret I've had a bad couple of weeks. I've been vocal enough about it and I'm really tired of my whining (I'm sure you are too).

So to turn the beat around, I'm going to thank Laurel of Laurel's Leaves for giving me the "Creative Writer" award, which celebrates our ability to pass off the made-up as reality.

The requirement of the award is that I tell five lies and one truth. So here goes: 
  1. When I was in college, one of my good friends was a vampire. 
  2. When I lived in Toronto, I decided to get a tattoo. As I was sitting in the tattoo parlor leafing through the book of options, the Chinese restaurant next door caught fire and we had to evacuate. I took it as a sign from the universe that I shouldn’t get inked. I still don’t have a tattoo.
  3. When we got married, my husband and I both wore dresses.
  4. My favorite thing to do is go camping. I love hiking to a place where no one has been and just chilling out by the campfire.
  5. Shortly after I graduated, I was approached by a recruiter from the Department of Defense to work for them on an artificial intelligence computer project I started while in college.
  6. I don’t believe in love at first sight.
So I ask you, which one do you think is true? Go on... guess!

Please leave your pick in the comments section. I'll post the answers in a day or so.


  1. I'm hoping for #2. That sounds cool.

  2. The vampire one is definitely true. ;)

    Just read your query and excerpt. Sounds like a great story. I'd def read more. Good luck with the fulls. Can't wait to see you post your agent announcement.
