I’m Sarah Wynde (or at least I call myself that sometimes) and this is my home on the web. One of them, anyway.
On this blog, I write about my life, my travels, my camper van/home, my dogs (often!), my kid (occasionally), the food I cook, and the writing I do. If you were hoping to learn more about the books I’ve written, that Book Info link up in the corner will take you to my business site, which I update with exclusively book info so that casual readers can skip all this other stuff.
What would you like to know?
This is the moment when authors come up with amusing tales of their former identities, world travels, taste in food/beverages, and hobbies, right? Somehow being both humble and interesting, entertaining and inoffensive? Oi, that sounds like a lot of work. And awfully hard when it comes right down to it. But here goes…
Once upon a time, my son (terrific, wonderful, charming, sweet) said to me, “You have become a liberal stereotype, Mom.”
I said, “Is it the yoga?”
He said, “The yoga, the health food, the Jack Russell terrier…”
I said, “But I have 11 maxed-out characters in World of Warcraft and read almost exclusively genre fiction. Don’t my geek credentials save me?”
He said, “Not since you took up knitting.”
I said, “But I’m really bad at knitting and really good at WoW.”
He said, “Point to you.”
That was before I got dog #2 (a long-haired chihuahua) and moved into a camper van so I don’t know whether I am more or less of a stereotype now. If I am, it’s probably more like hippie aunt than soccer mom.
Other random facts: I like to pretend that my chihuahua is part corgi so I don’t have to worry that he’s getting fat — it’s those sturdy corgi bones. My van is named Serenity after the spaceship, although peace of mind is lovely, too. My secret superpower is the ability to protect other people from mosquitoes, which I assume means my blood is particularly delicious. I am therefore grateful that vampires aren’t real.
