About Me

My bio in quotes

“If you fear nothing, then you are not brave. You are merely too foolish to be afraid.”

― Laurell K. Hamilton, Skin Trade

“I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stunned by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say, "Hi." They may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word.”

― Augusten Burroughs

“I have a theory that selflessness and bravery aren't all that different.”

Veronica Roth, Divergent

“You take I-55 south, and you'll run into I-20. Or you could take..."
I was about to be overloaded with information. "Oh that sounds just perfect. Let me do just that, or I'll lose track."
"Sure, glad I could help."
"Oh, you surely did."
We beamed at each other, just two nice women. I had to fight an impulse to say "I have a tortured vampire in trunk," out of sheer giddiness.”

― Charlaine Harris, Club Dead
"Are you out of your mind?"
It's not polite to lie to your best friend. "It's a possibility.”

― Ilona Andrews, Magic Bleeds

“You must remember, family is often born of blood, but it doesn't depend on blood. Nor is it exclusive of friendship. Family members can be your best friends, you know. And best friends, whether or not they are related to you, can be your family.”

― Trenton Lee Stewart, The Mysterious Benedict Society

“There is no dishonor in losing the race. There is only dishonor in not racing because you are afraid to lose.”

― Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

“If I win, I'm a prodigy. If I lose, then I'm crazy. That's the way history is written.”

― Eoin Colfer, Artemis Fowl

“I've always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unaware of their effect." His eyes searched mine intently, and for a moment we stood there toe to toe. "The ones who throw their beauty around, waste what they have? Their beauty is only passing. It's just a shell hiding nothing but shadows and emptiness.”

― Jennifer L. Armentrout, Obsidian

“Quiet people have the loudest minds.”

― Stephen Hawking
“She was sensible and clever, but eager in everything; her sorrows, her joys, could have no moderation.”

― Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility The Screenplay
