yes book cookies

The Grand 1000 Books Party

This is a photo of me holding cookies decorated like books, celebrating the day I logged 1000 entries in the Book of Books.  I’m also wearing book earrings, and by that I mean I sewed and bound tiny 16-page books and made earrings out of them.  I also clearly failed to do the dishes before this photo was taken.  If you want further analysis (and I haven’t hit a thousand words yet, so this photo still has more to say) I’ve got a little sign back there that says “Mia Cucina,” because I’m half-Italian but the only half I know is the eating half.

I live in Southern California with my husband and babies and cats, and also many hundreds of books that will only fit in our house as long as I don’t have to give up my study as a kid’s room.  And technically you’re not a crazy cat lady if you’re married.  Them’s the rules.

I’m a writer with extensive training in library science–that means I’m ORGANIZED. At the moment I’m taking care of babies and writing weird little books in the cracked out wee hours of the morning and night. Most of all, I am striving to live my life samtastically.

Oh, and this is Mr. and Mrs. Cat.  They’ll be appearing on this website with baffling irregularity.


Mr. and Mrs. Cat see the pyramids. Lucky.
