About the Author
Hi there! I'm Anita, an author, artist, and mommy with not enough time to do any of those things. I'm sure you understand. Here are 10 semi-interesting facts about myself:
1. I was born in Philadelphia, PA. Honk if you know what 'hoagies' are.
2. I was home-schooled.
3. I started drawing when I was two years old. My dad would draw a big bus for me and I'd draw a happy face in each window.
4. I'm a chocoholic who's allergic to chocolate!!! Yes, I'm living the nightmare. Chocolate makes me bad-tempered, hysterical, or both. I sure miss ice cream sandwiches. And M&Ms. And brownies. And chocolate milkshakes. And Oreo cookies....
5. I LOVE literary novels, any book that exemplifies the beauty of language. "In vain have I struggled, it will not do! You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." (sigh)
6. I was once a donor for a bone marrow transplant. The recipient was my little sister. I was eleven years old at the time.
7. I collect piggy banks and paint them too! My favorite so far is the leopard-print piggy.
8. I can't. watch. horror movies
.9. I now live in upstate New York. After Philadelphia, I can't get used to all this grass.
10. I will never outgrow the Super Mario Brothers! Hopefully that makes me a cool mom.
Please e-mail me if you have any questions or comments about my work. I'd be delighted to hear from you! God bless you.
