Since I am a new Twinsie, I thought I should probably introduce myself. I’m a little giddy, I always wondered what it would be like to have a twin!!
My name is Brenda Wright, I live in Sioux City, Iowa (west coast of Iowa). I have been married to my best friend, Darin for 16 years, in May. We’ve been together for 23 years. WOW, that makes me feel old! We have three beautiful daughters; Taelyr, 19; Kaelyn, 13; and Jaemee, 6. They keep us busy.
I am relatively new to this “reading” thing. If you would have asked me a year ago to “read” a book, I would have laughed in your face and told you “I don’t READ!” I could read about 2-3 pages at a time, because it always put me to sleep. Well, in May of 2012, I heard people talking on the radio about some 50 Shades of some color book. A few days later, I saw it in the store. It was a THICK book, I read the back cover and saw that it was one of three books. I said OH HELL NO! I can’t read THREE books this thick!! I DON’T read!! A few days later, a friend at work told me that she was reading a book that I HAD to read! Of course, it was the same book. So reluctantly, I did. I downloaded an app and I bought the whole trilogy! That was a big commitment to me to get ALL THREE at the same time. Boy, I was glad that I did. I read all three of the of the books in 5 days. I was so sad (now I know it as a “book hangover”) that after 2 days, I read them all again. It only took 4 days the second time. I loved it even more!!
And that’s how it all started….I have been reading ever since. I’ve read well over 120 books since then. I just can’t stop. My kids keep threatening to take all electronic devices away from me! It hasn’t happened yet! They love their iPhones too much!
Back in December, I was approached by a new author, Andrea Smith, about possibly editing her third book that she was just beginning. I was thrilled! It was a new experience for me. I did her third book, then went back and edited her first and second books. Since then, she’s written two more! I love her stories!
A few months ago, I was invited to a special Facebook page with the best girls you could ever “talk” to! We share everything together. And when I say “everything”, I MEAN “EVERYTHING!” We have all become fast friends! One of those great ladies approached me last night about joining this wonderful blog page. I have been following it for months, so I was familiar with their work. Of course, I had to say YES! So here I am….
I am excited to start “officially” reading for you all! I hope I can write reviews that will help you want to read great books. I am pretty much a “tell it like it is” kind of girl. I have learned after years of being a “people pleaser” that “Ain’t nobody got time for that” (I quote a famous lady from the internet!).
So, that’s pretty much everything about me. I hope to start my first book soon! Thanks again for the warm welcome!
