I've been tagged!!!

Robin Owens tagged me, which means I have to now list eight things you may not know about me.

1.) You probably know I do CGI art. You may not know that I started out doing pastel portraiture back in junior high, and continued doing pastel work for years. Walter Koenig, (AKA Chekhov from Star Trek) once gave me first place in an art contest at Heroes Convention for a portrait of Captain Kirk.

2.) My first crush on an actor/character was Captain Kirk. (I was 12 at the time.) Ahhh, that manly chest... LOL!

3.) When I was five or six, I had an imaginary friend -- Little Joe from Bonanza. (Actually, he's probably my first crush.,) Mom had to set a place at the table for him, and God help you if you sat on him.

4.) I worked in television production for four years, including two directing a religious program. I had just started writing erotic romance for Red Sage; if my boss had known what I was doing, she would have fired me. Then again, her receptionist was a drag queen, and she didn't know that either...

5.) When I was a kid, I had a huge thing for horses. I took riding lessons, and my first attempts at fiction revolved around horses.

6.) I'm a huge comic book geek. I still read comics, and of course, my first published fiction was a comic book mini-series.

7.) I wrote a Doc Savage spin-off for Caliber Press -- a comic about Doc's sister, Pat Savage.

8.) When I was in high school and college, my friends and I made a series of super-eight movies, which I wrote, shot and directed: "Landing Party," a Star Trek thing, "The Intergalactic Bar and Grill," another Star Trek thing; "Raiders of the Lost Props," a spoof of Raiders of the Lost Ark (Indy was menaced by a sock puppet instead of a cobra); Enemies and Friends, a Battlestar Galactica thing; and "Smith and Wesson," a detective flick which almost got us arrested for taking a gun to an airport. Good thing it was 1980 instead of today, or I'd still be in jail.

HERE ARE THE RULES FOR MY TAGGEES:

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

My victims are: Rebecca York,

Hi Angela:

I just finished your new book, Master of Dragons, it was fantastic. I think this one was the best of the Mageverse series. I hope there will be many more stories to come.

While sensuous and action packed, your books also make me laugh out loud. "Darth Legolas", was one of the best descriptions of a handsome bad guy, ever!

I thank you, for all of the great entertainment and pure pleasure your books have brought me.

I'm glad you liked that line! I did snicker over that one. :)

And thank you for the compliment on MOD. I really enjoyed writing it, and I'm proud of the book.

No wonder you write such great series...you have one hell of an imagination! Don't Stop! I really enjoyed Master of Dragons. Really glad about what happened to them at the end, they deserved it!

Your crushes sound alot like mine...I had one other, Mickey from the Monkeys!

I also had a huge thing for horses, had 1 pony and 1 horse growing up. I didn't like to chase after them in the pasture so I learned to whistle like one, thats how I got them to come to me. I still love them but from a distance now. If I lived in the country, you can bet I'd have at least two.

I always wanted a horse. But they're so expensive...

LOL on the MONKEYS. :>

And my word verification was vaguely pornographic. Not erotic...

Just dropping by and look what I found? You love horses. You'll have to come meet Thunder next time you're in town!
