Upcoming Blogfest And Tagging

Next month I'm going to be one of the hosts (over on my author blog) of a fantastic blogfest that I hope you'll all enjoy and take part in. It's called I Love Dark YA blogfest in honor of dark young adult novels and of course in the spirit of October! One of my wonderful co-hosts, Christa Desir of Christa Writes And Rambles, has tagged me to tell you all 10 non-writerly things about myself. I'm going to cheat a bit and just do five since I couldn't come up with 10.

#1. I love snowboarding. I'm no Shawn White but I can hold my own going down the hill and stay upright for the most part. ;)
Yeah, that's Shawn in the picture, not me. He looks SO much cooler on a board than I do and you won't find me within 10 feet of the edge of a half-pipe! I'd love to, I'm just not that coordinated.

#2. Though I've had many accidents, some of them pretty terrible, I love horseback riding and still do it every day that I can. That's me on my big paint, the one who caused a few of the accidents. He's as clumsy as I am, a bad combination I must admit. And why yes, since you mentioned it, my hair is red in that picture. ;) I loved the color but since I'm a natural blond it was WAY too hard to maintain.

#3. My favorite angsty vampire was and always will be Louie. I'm sorry but Edward just can't hold a candle to that. ->
By the way, if you don't know who Louie is, for the love of literature click on this link.
#4. Though I love all kinds of music from Loreena McKennit to Heavy Metal, my favorite group will always be the Dropkick Murphy's out of Boston. It's a bucket list item of mine to someday see them in Boston on St. Patrick's day.

#5. I'm not a fanatic by any means but I care deeply about conservation and protection of endangered species. It breaks my heart to know that we're using up our planets resources and devastating it's forests and jungles to the point of no longer having enough places to live and driving animals into extinction. I give whenever I can and do my best to make a difference.

Now I get to pass it on to three of my blogging friends. I'm going to pick a few of our new Write Campaign buddies. Tag, you're it!

  1. What a fun post, Heather. I love the pictures and the scoop on your passions. Go WWF! (btw, I had no idea Brad Pitt played Louie. Anne Rice and her vampires scare me so much that I can't stand to read about them or watch them-or any other vampires, etiher . . . because I think they're REAL.)

  2. Linda, thank you! You've never seen Interview With A Vampire?! You're missing out. ;)

  3. Love that pic of you on your horse, and all that snow! Looks lovely (and cold, brr)

  4. Tagged twice in one week! Sheesh. I hope that doesn't mean I have to make 20 true writerly confessions! I guess I know what Friday's blogpost is gonna be about. . .me. Ugh.

    Your big paint is beautiful and so is your heart ^_^

  5. Heather I love this! It's so much fun to learn more. The new one on my list is snowboarding. I'll have to tell you about my first snowboarding experience. Kind of funny...but fun. And I survived. Great photos. And a great blogfest is coming soon. I can hardly wait! Thanks for a great post and a wonderful way to end my day.

  6. So nice to learn more about you! I feel the same way about the earth. Treehuggers unite!
