So... since we're passing the coffee around while we introduce ourselves, you can keep passing it -- right past me!
I'm B.J., and I've never met a cup of coffee I liked. Of course, I've only tried one. (Did I just admit that with Erynn sitting across the table?)
I'm pretty narrow-minded about beverages, but that's about where it ends. For instance, I used to believe that all men were inherently evil. Then I met this one:
He opened my mind (and my heart) up really quickly to the concept of marriage. The girl who used to make math equations like, "Singleness = Happiness" and "Marriage = Bondage" suddenly found herself saying "I DO!" That was 2 years ago, and we are so happy.
Speaking of happy -- writing also gives me that feeling. Like Erynn, I wrote as a kid, but my first story involved a "poky-dotted pony". Sometime in the next 20 years I learned to spell, and Books & Such Literary Agency agreed to shop some of my non-fiction humor proposals to publishers. In the meantime, I've harassed and manipulated magazine, compilation-book, and newspaper editors into publishing my work almost 150 times.
So now I'm handing you the coffee. Regular or decaf? And while you're at it, why don't you tell us a little about yourself?
