First, I am going to write this “author biography” in the first person, because I (Anne Emerick) am, after all, writing it.
So who am I?
Someone who has always loved books. I love the connections that books make, whether it is reading them aloud with family or silently reading words that I could never say, but now know someone else feels too. The pictures I’ve posted include evidence of my life-long love affair with books.
Other facts you may observe looking at my pictures:
I’ve never been a snappy dresser.
I should probably consider hiring an interior decorator.
I always want to make other people laugh and myself smile.
Do you see my bad hair day photo? I had just been battling with our lawn mower which refused to start. I came inside, hot, sweaty and aggravated. John had just opened a new Polaroid-style camera. “Smile,” he said. I complied, but thought, “Oh this is going to be a great photo.” I actually ended up loving the photo because I think it proves that a good smile trumps a bad hair day (and a lot else).
Facts you can’t tell from my pictures (in no particular order):
I’m a messy person, very organizationally challenged. Living with me a neat freak would…. well, freak!
I love dogs. We have three – two Labrador Retrievers and one Cocker Spaniel.
have mostly earned my living as a computer programmer, a field known for being filled with wild, life-of-the-party personalities.
I have run a 5K in under 20 minutes, but it was a very long time ago.
I am happily married with two kids. Oh, wait, can I count my daughter-in-law? Then we’re at three.
Okay, enough about me. If you like my books enough that you want to tell me about it, you can email me at Anne at AboonBooks dot com. I hope to hear from you. If I’m slow to respond, just remember ‘organizationally challenged.’
