Meet an Author Monday!
In honor of school starting this week, here are five fun school-related facts about me:
1) Beginning with kindergarten and going all the way through the end of graduate school, I attended 24 year of full-time schooling. Wow. God, that's how I got so old lol!
2) My first love was always history. I grew up in western Maryland, just a few miles from Antietam, and so the history of the Civil War always fascinated me.
3) My second love was biology. I won a lot of science fairs with my biology field research in high school. Some days I wish I would've gone that route, particularly marine biology. Oh, to work on the water!
4) Yes, it's true, I was a band geek. Drum major, even. Geeky as it might've been, those are still some of my most fond high school memories.
5) I won a writing contest in high school with one of the few pieces of fiction I wrote before a few years ago. The writing prompt was to write a story that made significant use of technology. I wrote a piece called "Peter Saves the Czar"--it was a science fiction/time travel story about a high school boy who invented a time machine and went back to Russia to save the Romanovs from assassination. I wonder what ever happened to that...
Okay, your turn--share a fun school-related fact!
Thanks for reading,
