Before I get to the silly stuff, here are some serious facts about me.
I run a lot, and very slowly. Okay... I speed walk a lot.
I can’t stand losing at Pictionary. Can't. Stand. It.
I could survive off sushi, mint chocolate chip ice cream and avocados. And yeah, sure, give it to me all at once.
I went to an event (inside!) the White House hosted by Michelle Obama to promote her Let's Move! campaign, and I will never stop bragging about it.
I take pictures of my baby sleeping. And I will never stop referring to him as my baby.
When New World Library confirmed my book deal I got so excited I peed a little. I had a vaginal birth...
And now for "the real bio." (I don't usually write in third person, but when I do, I write a comprehensive bio.)
