When I’m not procrastinating my life away looking at the internet, watching 80’s movies, reading old Sweet Valley High books, all the YA fiction books, listening to old Bryan Adams & Whitesnake albums or pinning 80’s kitchens to Pinterest or doing my day job, I’m super busy writing a novel. It’s about time travel & the 1980’s. I love time travel, that desire we all have to go back and start again or to be a part of something amazing from history like being an extra in the roller skating scene at the end of Xanadu, because if you had a time machine, where could you possibly go in all of time and space that would be more fun than this?
But time moves forward and we age in the process. I hope I don’t age too much before my novel is finished. I want to be able to rock an 80’s prom dress at my movie première.
I’ve done a bunch of other writing stuff like travel articles for magazines, theatre reviews, a tween fiction book about kids who go to a performing arts school, a Sweet Valley High blog that got one follower and in the early 2000’s I wrote some angsty songs with 3 guitar chords. Hopefully this novel turns out a hell of a lot better than those songs were.
