That isn't to say my first love as being a mom to two handsome boys isn't my priority. I love being a mom. Between watching the latest Disney cartoon that hits the theaters and saying goo goo ga ga every couple of minutes, being a writer helps me keep my sanity. I prefer adult conversation like most women and I adore my children. Trust me, it's no easy feet trying to write a manuscript, scout for agents, and talk Power Rangers. I don't blame my son for being a little curious about what his mother does for a living. When I was growing up my mom worked all the time and took us shopping on the weekends. I didn't ask many questions...because I was quite happy. As my kids get older I've made a conscious decision to be at home more and be a more on hands mom with my children. It never hurts that my particular passion happens to be writing. In my book that's the win/win.
So, in short...no I am not an alien!! I'm a mom trying to write a book and earn a living just like everyone else. And it just so happens that I have the cutest and smartest eight year old in the world. Lucky me!!
