Re-Introduce Myself Blogfest

Today is the "Re-Introduce Myself Blogfest" put on by Mark Koopmans, Elise Fallson, and C.M. Brown, and Stephen Tremp

2012 was an amazing year as so many new authors, writers, poets, musicians, and people with something to share such as recipes and movie reviews joined the blogging community. We visit other blogger’s sites and they visit us. But many new bloggers and the more established ones often don't really know much about each other. 

So, today I am going to be sharing a small snippet about me in exactly 100 words!

I’m a writer who really loves “Star Trek”.  I’m a geek.  I love fantasy and I write epic fantasy and urban fantasy.  I’m terrified of cotton balls. I love jelly beans (my blog used to be called “The Jelly Beans of Writing”).  I’m secretly in love with Viggo Mortensen and I absolutely loved him as Aragorn!  I would love to have a beagle someday and name him Porthos.  My best friend tells me my autobiography (when I get an interesting life) will be called “Man or Beagle?” Because I can’t decide between the two if I could only have one.   

Whew!  100 words about me!  So, in a nutshell - that's me, Krista!  

Feel free to introduce yourself in the comments so I can get to know you! :)

  1. Star Trek is easily one of the best things in the world. Of course you'd name your beagle Porthos. What other name could there be? Just don't let Scotty transport him anywhere!

    And Viggo Mortensen is pretty amazing!

  2. That's a wonderful name for a beagle. And of course Star Trek is one of the best things in the world! Nice meeting you... again :)

  5. My husband is NUTSO for beagles. One of these days I'm sure we're going to have a herd but in the meantime we have a teeny tiny Pom-mix who isn't anything like a Snoopy-dawg. Some day, though, Krista, some day...

  6. I've always wanted a beagle. My neighbor has a few and they are really great dogs. 52.

  7. Hi Krista, I would definitely go for the "man" vs. the "beagle". Most are potty-trained.
    Nice to meet you and feel free to stop by my little nut-tree and hang out under its shady branches for a spell.

  8. Love the "Man or Beagle?" bio title, hahaha! Can't wait to read it when you're rich and famous some day! :)

    My dad always liked the original Star Trek and the spinoffs, and so I grew up watching Picard's serene awesomeness. My favorite ST series was Voyager, though!

  10. Hey Kirsta! I've always wanted to name a pet Oolon Colluphid, after the Hicthhiker's Guide to the Galaxy's beloved minor character. :)

  11. Hey Krista, choose the beagle. They're much more loving and loyal. :-)

  12. Viggo!!!! Yeah!!! Hey, Krista! It's great to meet you! I'm a YA author gearing up for the release of my first novel. And beagles, who doesn't love beagles. If I had one, I'd name him Snoopy. I know that's not original, but he was the greatest beagle of all time. I'm glad I stopped by. I look forward to more of your posts! :)

  13. Nice to meet you Krista! I'm Rachel. My roommate is OBSESSED with beagles...too funny. I also am a hardcore Star Wars fan but I did enjoy the recent JJ Abrams Star Trek movie. Mmm Chris Pine's blue eyes! Hehehee. Looking forward to more of your posts!

  14. Star Trek is awesome. As are Beagles!! Great post!

  15. Beagles are really cute. Tough choice.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Go for Viggo! Beagles have really annoying barks, which they practice quite a lot. Besides, Viggo is hotter and he probably doesn't have a cold wet nose!

  17. Beagles are great dogs! (And jelly beans are pretty awesome, too.)

    I say go for both... why choose one over the other? The new title will be man+beagle=meagle or manbeagle or beagleman... LOL.

  25. Hi Krista! What a fun post. As a Beagle lover, I hope you do get your Porthos! Great name. :)

  26. Great introduction! I share your fondness for Viggo Mortenson, he made Aragorn my favourite character in the LOTR movies :)

  28. I still think your blog's called "The Jelly Beans of Writing"! It's a great name.

    I grew up with TNG and I still wallow in nostalgia whenever it's on. :)

  30. Hi, Krista,

    A pleasure to meet you. AMAZING that you said it all in 100 words. I failed and missed that part of the entry. LOL.

    I had a beagle growing up and she was a real honey, but always ran away... they love to hunt and are very mischievous, but sweet. And their howl is hysterical.

    I hope to read some of your writing soon.
    I write fantasy as well ... m/g and y/a fantasy and contemporary.

  31. I've always wanted a beagle, except I would probably name mine Daryl or something :D

    Good for you for keeping it under 100 words. I missed that memo.

    Nice meeting you!
