I was born ... a 3 pound 7 ounce preemie and as I grew up, my hair didn't grow with me (see the top photo?!). I tend to think that's why I became hair obsessed as an adult. I've been many colors, styles, and even textures over the years. People often ask me what my natural color is. Obviously the hair grew. Some say it overgrew. And then the color fetish started. The middle photo is me at my engagement party with my husband Phil. (And no, his name isn't Phil Phillips, but that's another story!)
The wife ... I stepped onto the campus of Brandeis University (Waltham, MA) as a high school junior and swore I wouldn't go anywhere else. There was a reason I knew I belonged only there. My husband and I met when we were in college (yes, I got into Brandeis much to my parents' relief). Phil understands me better than anyone else and always has. He's my best friend, my strongest supporter and the love of my life (the bottom photo was taken this year). Click on each photo to see the full view.
The Mom ... I'm so lucky because I have two daughters who bring me such joy. They are sports addicts (they get their ability from their dad) and they love to read. Hmm. Wonder who they take after there?
The TV addict ... It's not just procrastination, it helps with my writing! I love watching television and I'm certain the TV accounts for how I get many of my writing ideas! Television, magazines, snippets of life. Despite what my neighbors think, I'm not peeking into their windows or using a telescope to check out their private lives. However it's a good idea. Just kidding! In reality, I write from the heart with you, the reader in mind. When you read a Carly Phillips book, you're always getting a part of me as my gift to you.
A Family of Couch Potatoes ... I love relaxing with my family on the weekends. I'll usually let the Soap Net channel run while I can be found at the computer or reading a book. My husband of course, is watching whichever sport is in season. Since Phil is from New England, we cross our fingers each football season that the PATRIOTS win at the Super Bowl. As for baseball (my favorite sport) we're NY METS and Boston RED SOX fans while my mom is a NY Yankees fan. Oh the fun we have at home. Oh and did I mention Buddy is always by my side?
