About

I should hire someone to write this page because outside-looking-in is sometimes a better perspective than the other way around, and I’m quite sure that most of the time I completely misunderstand myself. About me? I like pizza and brownies, I dislike spinach and squash – this, I think, is central to understanding what it is to be Anjeanette. I’m a Star Wars geek and my favorite band of all time is REM (although my current musique du jour is a group called Fishtank Ensemble). I have a great love affair with books. If you can’t find me, follow the books and there I’ll be.

In summary: My husband, our son and daughter and I live smack dab in the middle of Mormon country, Salt Lake City, Utah – home of very large families, the greatest snow on earth, and strange foods like green Jell-o and funeral potatoes. I can’t believe I am raising children (that I swore I’d never have but then my friend had a baby and my biological clock went into hyperdrive) here because when I moved away I swore I’d never be back but… here I am, and here we all are. My husband likes to play guitar and is in the midst of figuring out what to do for a living. When not chasing the children I work from home as a medical transcriptionist. The kids do nothing aside from refuse to eat food or sleep for any reasonable amount of time. Life is good.

  1. I’m an enemy of squash and often Ist Division Bunker with a platoon of books.

    You used to write..you still do —I read your post. I’m damn near double your age and have been with the same broad for over twenty years. Happy and very much in love and lust still. Much to the surprise of most who took an over/under of 18 months.

    Our cat died three years ago. Our puppy two months ago. And the database on my main web site days ago.

    So my suggestion: have a pizza, a brownie and three fingers of bourbon, then write a short story. Because with E-Publishing starting to kick ass, the short story is about to do a “Lazarus.” Think about it. You’ve got that “writer’s” voice for it.

    Regards,

    same Doug from a different site…the one I need to rebuild, cause I got pissed when our puppy died and took it out on a database.

    • I’m convinced that squash is of the devil. The smell is enough to put me off food for a few days. Thank you so much for your kind words. I’ve been tinkering with words and I’m sure eventually I’ll have what amounts to a short story. And I sometimes write romance novels in my spare time. What about you? Surely you’re in the middle of penning a great novel? Sorry about your puppy. I would have taken it out on something too.

  2. I just read bits and pieces of your blog — enough to know that you’re an amazing writer who’s way too hard on herself, AND your daughter is beautiful. Congratulations and welcome to motherhood. I recognize so much of myself in your stories. My children are now 4 and 3, and it has gradually become easier, though I still struggle with that beast perfectionism. Be kind to yourself. You’re doing amazing work. I look forward to reading more.
