I’m a small-town girl, who has done her time in the cities (Houston, Tulsa, L.A.) but really prefers things local and friendly. That being said, I get a real kick out of movies that make fun of little towns, rural communities, or city slickers who just can’t cut it in a tight-knit village (My Cousin Vinny, Runaway Bride). I’m also a firm believer that, next to church, the beauty shop is the best place in town learn what’s going on.
Likes: An Irish accent is romantic and sexy as hell. The Dove products ads with “real women” models. I sincerely hope every beer-belly-sporting dude who makes a snide comment about them gets a big, nasty, ingrown hair. In his nose. Cowboys. Especially with a southern accent. Yeah, Texan cowboys really do it for me. Stand-up comedians, particularly the ones who can make fun of themselves.
Writing? It’s a craft. A talent developed by practice and hard work. Nobody is born able to do it. Imagination helps, but without language skills, the stories would remain stuck in somebody’s head.
