Every once in a while you read about a criminal that slides behind the wheel to steal a vehicle, only to get out and move onto another when he realizes the car has a manual transmission.

If I was a car thief, I’d be able to drive that vehicle.  My first car, that I purchased with my own hard-earned money when I was 17, was an MG Midget.

MG

I didn’t know how to drive a stick shift when I bought that car, but I quickly learned.  I also learned to steer clear of hills…especially those hills with a stop sign or a stop lights at the top of that hill.  I would cringe when a car would pull right up to my bumper when I was stopped.

As anyone who has ever driven a car with a manual transmission knows…you have to let out the clutch just right or the car will move slightly backward.  It’s also hard to eat and drink while driving because of the shifting.  Still, I loved that car so much that I didn’t mind.  

The boy who would eventually become my brother-in-law also had an MG Midget and we used to go to the abandoned airbase outside of town and race.  I know. Not smart.

In order to become better acquainted I thought it might be fun to confess to  one or two crazy things that fall into the bucket of I-can’t-believe-I-did-that-when-I-was-young.

A lot of mine seem to involve speed.  First the racing (which was only two or three times).  The worse is when the boy (who would eventually become my husband) and I took his mother’s Lincoln Continental out on the Interstate and got it up to 110.  Seriously, it felt like we were going…70.

It’s important to note this is the same man who now drives so slowly on the Interstate, his elderly mother tells him to speed up!! lol 

Anyone who shares even one crazy thing they did when they were young will be entered into a drawing to win a free book, their choice of anything I’ve written.

Don’t forget to check back on Sunday to see if you’re a winner!

Whenever I meet someone for the first time it  seems I find myself searching for common ground.  This can be writing related (if they’re another author or simply interested in writing), previous work history (where I’ve worked in the past, where they’ve worked in the past or where they work now), education related (grade school, middle school, high school, college) or family (which can encompass a whole slew of things).  It can be favorite books, movies, televisions shows, places traveled to…and sometimes…pets.

Here’s a little bit about me that I might tell you if we were searching for common ground:

Married to my high school sweetheart.  One grown daughter. A fabulous son-in-law and two adorable granddaughters (who will be turning 2 & 4 in the next two weeks) I’ve lived in Lincoln, Nebraska my whole life, attending grade school, junior high, high school and college here.  

I love romance in all forms–books, movies and television.  I love, love, love JD Robb’s In Death series because of the characters, especially the interplay between Eve and Roarke.  My favorite television shows are Downton Abbey, Castle, The Blacklist (okay, it’s not a romance) and Forever (which I hope gets renewed)

I love to travel. I’ve swam in the Blue Lagoon in Iceland and rode a bicycle down a volcano in Maui but plan to stick closer to home in the next few years (as in the continental USA) because there are still so many places in the US I want to see.

In terms of pets, I currently have two dogs. I have a blue heeler (who is a great guard dog) named Shug, who provides me with tons of stories because of his anti-social behavior.

I have a dorkie (dachshund/yorkie mix) named Chico (no, I didn’t give him that ridiculous name–it came with him) who is a total love-bug.

Since we’re trying to get acquainted and I don’t want to do all the talking…please, tell me two things about YOU.

This week there will be THREE winners.  Each one will be get a book of mine (your choice) with the names of those winners drawn from those who comment.  Check back on Sunday to see if you’re one of the lucky three!

North American winners will get a print copy, international winners will get an e-version!
