I'm a writer who was lucky enough to be signed by my awesome agent, Rachel Vater (http://www.lowensteinyost.com). Rachel sold two of my books (Halfway to the Grave and Romancing the Grave) to Erika Tsang at HarperCollins. Halfway to the Grave was the first novel I completed, but I've written short stories/poetry since I was 12.
Confessions: I swear like it's a cure for all that ails me. Motherf---- is my favorite word. It's a good thing I don't have children, or their first word would probably be a four-letter one. I can't drink because I get drunk immediately. I am an avid animal lover. If I had more willpower, I'd be a vegetarian, but for now that's filed under 'future goals'.
Why I wasn't originally going to blog: Because only insomniacs would like it. They'd send me grateful emails telling me how my blog had succeeded in putting them to sleep where pills, meditation and self-inflicted concussions had failed. Who wants that kind of fan mail?
Why I'm blogging now: Because someone's making me! No names (http://www.melissa-marr.com/) but I have been strongly advised that I should. And since said Mystery Person has a sequel that I am frothing at the mouth to read, blog I will! Insomniacs, stand by...
