Notes from a YA Debutante


I’m so excited to be one of the 2013 featured debutantes. When I was shopping for this dress they said they’d throw in Mr. Darcy with purchase. I started to ask if they meant the Collin Firth version or the Matthew MacFadyen one then I realized it didn’t matter.

So as evidenced by my dress selection, I’m a fan of Ms. Jane Austen. I was an avid reader long before I tried my hand at writing. Outside of writing I like to wakeboard….well, I try to wakeboard, I’m not very good. Mostly because I’m scared of injuries. This is an unfounded fear, I’ve only broken a bone once and it wasn’t while wakeboarding. It was actually while walking through a parking lot. I tripped over a parking curb while carrying a baby seat. Broke my wrist. So technically I should be scared of parking lots. Or baby seats. But I saved the baby!! Yes, I’m a true hero. My wrist can now tell me when it’s going to rain.

Speaking of baby seats. I’ve had to carry four different baby seats through dozens of different parking lots in the course of my life. There were actual babies in those seats as well. But I don’t have any more babies. My oldest is a Freshman in high school. And my youngest started school this year. I will go cry now.  It was a short cry because I remembered how much writing time that gives me. Yay for writing time!

I actually have lots of writing time because I have the world’s most supportive husband. I met him in college. He played basketball. Yes, a book nerd married a 6’8” jock. Turns out he likes books too and I like to watch sports. We fit well. Plus, he doesn’t mind that I brought Mr. Darcy home from the dress store. He agreed that it was a very good deal with purchase.

Bookie's Note: Kasie, your life is like a YA contemporary novel! The book nerd falls in love with the jock who likes to read too! Perfection! Now I'm inspired to go to college in America! I haven't read any of Jane Austen's books but your enthusiasm over Mr. Darcy makes me want to! (Perhaps next year!) I've never wakeboarded before, it always looked so dangerous and I'm not exactly the most outdoorsy person but I must give it ago sometime!

Make sure to come back tomorrow for the second half of Kasie's feature! We have some juicy secrets lined up and a fantastic giveaway!

  5. I can't wait to read Pivot Point. And I must say, even though I don't wear dresses but I do love this dress in particular. I'm a huge fan of Jane Austen.

  7. I'm with you Badass Bookie, I need to read Jane Austen as well. I keep meaning too but it never seems to happen.

    Maybe that's why I'm don't personally like the dress. It looks like a nightgown to me. Maybe that's the point though and I'm missing the reference since I haven't read Jane Austen.

    Talking about your husband and family was so cute and def. a "D'awww" moment.

  13. Awesome husband that understands when you bring home a classic. Mine would be like "ok babe, sure thing" and then go call his mama and ask who the heck Mr. Darcy is. But I love him anyway. He likes most everything that I like and vice versa. So we work pretty dang well! And I have broken quite a few bones (somewhere in the teens), and trust me, I would be scared of injuries too
