About Me

Hello everyone!

This is my self-indulgent, let's-talk-about-me page, which I don't do.

My name is djinnia.  Yes, intentionally lower case.  Why be pretentious, right?  No, it's not my real name (I don't give out my real name usually, but I guess I did during the A to Z Challenge . . .  Well, heck.) 

I am an aspiring writer with hopes of one day getting published -- whoa! -- let's go back a second -- I have been published!  SQUEE! **cough cough**  My first story is published in an ebook called Beyond the Binding, which is for charity.

So, I've crossed that hurdle.  THANK YOU, SAM!  My new goal is to have my own book published.  Crossing fingers and toes on that one.

I write in many different genres: fantasy, sci-fi, romance, contemporary, historical, paranormal, ya, and the list goes on. Sometimes I like to toss a couple of random genres together, shake (not stir), and see what oozes out.   I also play with different povs and tenses.  It just depends on what I'm writing.  

I've had this blog for about two years now (first post 5/23/12), and I'm finally getting to this.  Heh heh heh.  So very slow. 

I am a bibliophile.  In simple terms, I'm a book addict.  I always have to have a fix.  I have so many books that they could kill me if they fell on top of me.  Ebooks are okay, but there is nothing like holding a book and getting that yummy whiff of lovely book smell.  I could spend hours in a book store and not realize how much time I've spent in there.

I love words.  I have three word of the day emails that I receive.  Can we say geek much!

My tbr pile (in which the r stands for both read and review) is ginormous, and my mental tbr pile grows every time I go to the library.  There are just too many books and not enough spare time.

I have obsessions with anime, manga, tv, and movies.  I have very eclectic tastes.  One day it will beBenedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock, or Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lector.  Other days it's Ouran High School Host Club, and on special days it's musicals.  Love musicals.

I'm digressing now.  I do that frequently.  Rambling in both mouth and mind, and it's getting worse as I get older.

This blog is mostly for me to spaz out and for other random things, including my furry babies.  (Check out my fluff fluff on my picture.  Isn't he adorkable!)  Besides, my face can crack a thousand mirrors. 

Seriously, I can be serious, but life is too short to be that way all the time.  It takes too much energy.  I'm a go with the flow type of person.

So this is me in a nutshell.
