Now three following bloggers that I don't know enough about:


NOW, today's guinea pig - er, I mean subject - eh, well, you know what I'm trying to say, right? Anyhow, today I decided to feature

Lindsey is a tough nut to crack. Her bio is short and sweet and to the point. She says she is a "Teacher by day, Mommy by night, and Writer whenever I can squeeze it in. My own cast of characters: Me, Handsome Hubby, Tootsie Roll (7), and Curly Jones (3)" I had an idea spark in the back of my mind when I saw this statement. I mean, how in the world does she manage to "squeeze in writing?" Not to mention blogging.

Then I looked to the left. There was the answer. If you go to her blog you will see it too. See the striped socks? Remind you of anything? That's right. Wizard of Oz. Didn't the WITCH where those? Well, you know, different color and all. But still...

So I got to thinking. Couldn't one use witchcraft to squeeze in some more time in the day? Plus, not all witches are evil and ugly. I mean Hermione certainly wasn't. So, I think I might have figured this out.

So tell us, Lindsey - If your blog is called "Dangerous with a Pen," is the pen really wand?

Remember to stop by on Thursday to see the results of the contest I ran last week. I'll be interviewing a Nymph and a Satyr! Again - if you have a question you would like me to pose throw it in the comments section and I might just use it and link to your blog!


  1. Ooo, Ooo, You're going to SCBWI LA? Me too! Me too! (Hehe, can you tell I'm excited?) Yay, another person to keep an eye out for when I'm there. :)

    Happy Monday!

  2. Lyndsey, a witch, I could see it if it were the good kind from Wizard of Oz, not the green socks & cackling kind though! LOL! Ahhh Hawaii... We'll just end on that ;)

  3. Carolina - Yes. Going Bovine is in my opinion brilliant.

    Shannon - Yay! Definitely be sure to say hello! I can't wait to meet so many of the people I talk to online.

    Heather - Oh yes! The GOOD kind for sure. And of course, ending with Hawaii is always the way to go!

    And so good to learn more about you. I can't believe I haven't read Going bovine yet. I MUST pick up a copy for myself. And maybe I should take a trip to Hawaii too. Definitely on the to do list.

    P.S. I'll be at SCBWI LA, too!!

  10. Carolina - Yay! I can't wait for the conference. It's almost as good as going to Hawaii. :)
