My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Shellie Braeuner
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Semper Gumby (Always Flexible) It's our family motto.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I'm not sure I would recognize perfect happiness. Perfection makes me a little nervous, because I know it can't last. So I would probably be much happier with "Imperfect Happiness." Something along the lines of a string of beach houses with all my friends and family hanging out, playing games and eating chocolate chip cookies, but with the occasional mosquito.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Working as a Nanny, or playing with my nieces and nephews.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Richard III from the Shakespearen play of the same name. He's just evil. How many villains can propose to the widow of a man he killed. That's evil.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. If I could be anything, I would want to be either a fairy or an angel; a creature of magic and power with wings.

We are Nashville.

Let me just start by saying, I am not a blogger.  I just live with the very realistic belief that no one is particularly interested in my life.

But, having said that, in the spirit of Halloween, I will share my one and only Ghost Hunt.

I went to college in the middle of nowhere in Tennessee.  And when I say the middle, I mean Murfreesboro is the exact geographic center of nowhere.  We had the obelisk to prove it!  (We also had some weird cult from California who said that it was the geographic center of the Universe, but that's another story.)

Anyway, one Halloween night a group of about six of us dressed up... see more
