Hi! Welcome to Scribble Chicks!

Good morning!

I'm so excited to have you here! :) Let me tell you a little about this place you're hanging out in and then I'll tell you a little about me.

Scribble Chicks is a blog for writers, for readers, and for girls like us - just trying to figure out God's plan as we try to navigate the publishing field. So, if you're here, welcome! I hope you find us to be a bunch of friends who would love to grab a cup of coffee or a Coke and hang out with you.

So, in the spirit of coffee, I'll introduce myself. :)

I'm Erynn Mangum. I'm the baby of this crazy group of girls at twenty-four years old. I've been married to my best friend and the love of my life, Jon, for a year and a half. No kids yet, but our Husky puppy, Kody, believes he's our baby.

I love to watch the Food Network, hang out with friends and family, cuddle up for movie nights and try new recipes. I've had a love affair with chocolate for years and coffee is a passion of mine. Oh, and I love to write. I've been writing since I was a little kid. My first story? "The Puppy" written and illustrated by yours truly when I was about five.

When I was seventeen, I started taking classes through the Christian Writers Guild. Awesome people, awesome classes!! I ended up getting my first book, Miss Match, published by NavPress, thanks to the writing conference hosted by CWG. I've got two more novels in that series out, ReMatch and Match Point. And I have two coming out in a new series this coming year: Cool Beans and Latte Daze.

I can't wait for you to meet the rest of the Scribble Chicks! BJ, Betsy and Christa are some of the sweetest girls around!

Hope you all are having a fabulous day!

Erynn :)
