Happy 7th birthday, rgz! Here are 7 Things You Might Not Know About Me:

3. I love dressing retro, including wearing crinolines.
4. I once created 100 paintings for Cherry Coke's internet game, Time Tremors.
5. I usually write board books in the car.
6. Due to lupus, I love dark, rainy days.
7. I heart matcha green tea!

Oh, and here's my quote:

Enjoy the celebration this month and share your favorite, handwritten book quotes on the rgz facebook page! xox

Cool! I was a fine art major before turning to writing too. In my case I was a painting major, and I showed in galleries for a while. In fact, I just write a novella based on some of my crazy experiences! It's called Model Position (using my pen name, Kitsy Clare). Artist-writers are often quite visual in their descriptions. Power on.
