All About Me!

I know, the post title is lame, but I'm a preschool teacher, and this is something I do every year at school.  Since I'm being announced as the newest member of the OASIS FOR YA blog (YAYAYAYAYAY), I thought it would be a good time to give an Overview of Larissa for anyone new (or old and forgetful--lol).

Alrighty then.  First, and foremost for this blog, I am a writer.  I write YA Paranormal, and my current favorite books include (an exhaustive list would be ... uh, exhaustive): Rachel Hawkins' HEX HALL series (and I want to be Rachel when I grow up--she is awesomesauce), Rachel Vincent's SOUL SCREAMERS series (are we noticing I am a fan of series?), and JA Souders' ELYSIUM CHRONICLES (Ha!  I've read it and you have to wait until next year! Muahahaha!).

Of course, I have other jobs, too (too many JOBS! OMG.)  I also teach pre-k (that's the four-year-olds if you were wondering).  I have FIFTEEN kids in my class, so I am pretty much always either exhausted or hopped up on massive amounts of caffeine.  If you want to get on my good side, bring me Starbucks.  PLUS, I am the Handbell Choir Director and teach 1st-3rd grade Sunday School at my church.  Whee!

As if that weren't enough, I have THREE children, ages 8, 6, and 4.  So ... yeah.  O.o

Oh, and I haven't had internet at home for ELEVEN MONTHS because my wonderful husband didn't want to add another bill to the pile.  I have been told this will soon be remedied, but I am not holding my breath.  Again: O.o

If you want a taste of my sense of humor, check out this post, or this interview.

That's me!  I'll be doing my first post at the Oasis Thursday, so I hope you'll come visit me there, too!

Ooh, and I almost forgot, you should definitely check out the Oasis today, because there's a GIVEAWAY!!!
