I've Been Tagged by Suzanne Lieurance, The Working Writer's Coach


Here are 7 facts about me. If you list 7 about yourself and send it on, and back to me, we'll get to know more about each other. You can read more about Suzanne Lieurance at The Working Writer's Coach

SEVEN RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME: 

1. I studied acting with Lee Strasberg and met my husband in an acting class in New York City.

2. I've lived in Ohio, Wisconsin, Alabama, New York City, Los Angeles, and Texas. All in USA

3. My first job, after babysitting, was at the Georgetown Daily Gazette while I was still in high school. I also edited, illustrated and produced our high school year book.

4. I write at the back of my house with a lovely view of the garden, if the shrubs are kept trimmed (they are not now).  So, I'm working on the patio today.

5. I love Upcountry Maui and I'm lucky enough to have family there. I wish I could plan my life to visit on a regular basis. The beaches are nice, too. 

6. My favorite books are Lost Horizon by James Hilton, Portrait of Jenny by Robert Nathan, Russian novels in general, Oblomov by Ivan Goncharov in particular. And a story, The Necklace, by Guy de Maupassant. 

7. I have 5 half siblings, one that I love dearly, the others I don't have any contact with. I have 4 cousins who are as close and dear to me as siblings.

Lisa, I'll get to the meme this weekend. Usually, I'm terrible about following up, but because it's you, I'm promising.
Months ago, hoping to move toward conscientiousness, I started a sister blog especially for reviews and memes. So over the weekend, I'll put up 7 Things and tag a few friends at:

Lisa, I put up the meme. It was fun!
Seven is a significant but also quite manageable number. Let me know if anything there about me surprises you. Sometimes it's surprising the notions we get about writers after reading only a few blog posts.

I'll do my tagged here...

1. I worked hard and fought heard to get into UCLA and I' pround to be an alum.
2. I am in education...I started as a teacher and am not the Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction for both a county office of education and a school districe ... all in one.
3. I write everything from novels to screenplays to poetry...most of which sit under my bed because I hate to query or pitch...I really need to get over that.
4. I love Shakespeare and Maya Angelou and reading everything from non-fiction to historical fiction to poetry to blogs.
5. I love golf and running and the beach and writing and my family and friends.
6. I believe that education should be free and so should resources so I have a website where I post curriculum I make up based on the standards, so I guess I am a true geek.
7. I am obsessed with saving humanity -- and have very logical ideas -- only NO ONE WITH ANY power will LISTEN : ) .

That was fun... Elizabeth.
