Hello, Everyone! Welcome to the about section of the page that explains both myself and this wonderful world of Tudor.
I was born on June 1, and I didn't think anything about me would me lead me right towards the tudors. But the birthday alone was warning enough for my parents. Those who know Anne Boleyn know the day she was crowned Queen of England: June 1, 1533.
Normally in the about section I would put up some boring bio of myself, this time is different.
I grew up in Indiana, a hoosier right to the very bones of my being. (Hoosier- Someone born and raised in Indiana). I was a quiet child, I never said much, but growing up as someone who never spoke meant that I heard everything. I wanted to grow up so fast, thus not leaving myself a childhood since I was eight.
I am addicted to the written word, and by the age of eight I had read every book in my school library and the childrens section at the local public library. It was a big deal after I had read everybook within reach, and I wanted more. By the age of thirteen, I was writing my own books. One thing i notice about book writing, is that the ending is always a surprise, even if you're the one writing it.
Thursting myself into the writing world, I was still reading books. My dad is very big on history, which is where I get it from. But then I was only reading Horror and history had nothing to do with my world of writing and reading..... at least, not yet.
In 2006 my grandfather died. But before he had died, I went to his first chemotherapy appointment with him, my mother, and grandmother. Because I was still "a kid" I wasn't allowed in the actual room where my grandfather got his chemo. So I stayed in the very large office. I was there for at least a couple of hours and believe it or not, I wasn't bored. In the waiting rooms, where I sat, was a table piled with books. It had a sign which said, "Take One, Please". So I started going through the books.
As I picked each book up, read the backs and placed them down, I came across a book which looked rather special. ''The Other Boleyn Girl," by Phillipa Gregory. The cover was a woman in a Tudor gown looking out a window and as I picked up this book and the cover caught the light in the room, I knew there was something special.
As I began to read I found i wasn't as into it as I had origionally thought. I placed the book back on the table and grabbed another one. When my family came out from the back, I showed my mom a pile of books. As she began to shift through them I placed the book I was reading down, grabbed 'the Other Boleyn girl" and went home. I was pulled into the world of Tudor
