Day Twenty Four - All About Brodi Ashton ( Everneath)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Debutante Profile

Name - Brodi Ashton
Debut - Everneath 
Genre - Paranormal Romance
Blog - HERE
Facebook - HERE
Twitter - HERE

Because of two parents who were Greek myth geeks, I grew up thinking the latest fashion trends were inspired by Aphrodite, and a good conversational opener was, “So, which mythological character do you most resemble?” Despite these social shortcomings, I found a great husband who’s always my first reader. We live in Utah with our two young boys, who still have no idea why I'm at the computer all the time.

I received a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Utah and a Master’s degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics.

Dream Debutante Dress -  I chose this dress because I wore pants to my actual prom, and if I had the chance to do it over again, I'd go all out frill! No subtlety anywhere! 




Notes from a YA Debutante

I’m so excited to be a 2012 Debutante! So I thought I’d make up a list of 10 little known facts about me.

1.     Yes, Brodi is my real name. No, I’m not a boy.
2.     My husband can tell the kind of day I’ve had by the number of empty Diet Coke cans by my computer.
3.     The first book I ever wrote was about an alien who lived in Idaho. EVERNEATH is not that book.
4.     I might be the only person in the world addicted to Good&Plenty.
5.     I have a technique for reading revision letters from my editor that involves several intricate steps, like running around the island in my kitchen and shouting battle cries like “Tally Ho!” and “Vive L’Emerpeur!”
6.     I also have a technique for pouring Diet Coke so it’s perfect, involving several intricate steps like running water over the ice in the cup before I introduce the Diet Coke, thus preserving the integrity of the bubbles.
7.     I have absolutely no technique for cleaning my house or cooking regular dinners.
8.     It’s a good thing my husband didn’t marry me for my technique.
9.     Okay, #8 came out wrong. ( Bookie's NOTE : Bahah)
10.  98% of everything that comes out of my mouth is wrong!
