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!!!
