Introduction

I wanted to do a small introduction of myself before I dive into the “hot and heavy”. My goal will be to write a new post every week. I will try to do more.

My name is Tanya. I was born January 19th, 1982. I am currently 37 years old. I work a 40+ hour job as a C.N.A. (Certified Nursing Assistant) in a local Skilled Nursing Facility. I am a mother of four children, some I birthed and some I didn’t.

I’ve always loved reading. My favorite books are horror, fantasy and science fiction. Some of my favorite authors include Clive Barker, Stephen King, Ann McCaffery, J.K. Rowling, Isaac Asimov, J.R.R Tolkien, Ann Rice, Douglas Adams, Stephanie Meyer, Cassandra Clare, Robert Jordan, David Eddings, Terry Brooks and many others I can’t remember.

During my time in the Honey House reading was my way to escape into another world. I didn’t have to think about my life if I was joining Frodo’s fellowship or learning about Asimov’s three laws of robotics. I still love reading. Sometimes it used for an escape and sometimes for pure pleasure.

I spend a lot of time watching movies and TV shows. My favorite genre is horror. I love Doctor Who, The Walking Dead and The Magicians. Most other shows I binge watch on Netflix.

I am an Agnostic. That means I believe that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond. I claim neither faith nor disbelief.

I am a Liberal. To me that means supporting civil rights, democracy, gender equality, racial equality, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of religion. I believe people should be free to do what they want and be who they are if they aren’t harming anyone.

It took me years and years to finally gain a sliver of self confidence in myself. I can proudly say that I am a pretty cool human being.

Author: Tanya Gadd

Tanya lives in Northeast Georgia with her well-loved, ungrateful children, one of whom won't do her homework, even under punishment of death. When not being a full-time mom, the rest of her time is spent working as a Certified Nursing Assistant, but her secret inner-life reveals her to be an avid reader who is always writing stories in her mind. Tanya hopes eventually to live in a world with few people, no phones, an awesome Internet, and more science fiction/fantasy books than she can ever hope to read.

  1. Its like you learn my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the guide
    in it or something. I think that you simply can do with
    a few % to power the message home a bit, however instead of that, that is excellent blog.
    A great read. I will certainly be back.

  2. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and
    tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple
    ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  3. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was
    wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

  4. It is actually a nice and useful piece of information. I’m glad that you shared this helpful information with us.

    Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for
    sharing.

  5. Have you ever thought about including a little
    bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.
    However think of if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos,
    this site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Terrific blog!

  6. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to
    be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or
    something to do with browser compatibility but I
    thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though!
    Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks

  7. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here
    and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Outstanding work!

  8. Hello! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so
    I came to take a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to
    my followers! Superb blog and great design and style.

  9. We absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be just what I’m
    looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content for you?
    I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you
    write with regards to here. Again, awesome web log!

  10. Excellent blog you’ve got here.. It’s difficult to find high quality
    writing like yours nowadays. I seriously appreciate individuals like you!
    Take care!!

  11. I believe everything published was very reasonable.
    But, what about this? what if you were to write a awesome post title?
    I am not saying your content isn’t solid., however what if you added
    something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Introduction – Surviving
    the Sparks is kinda vanilla. You should glance at Yahoo’s front
    page and see how they create post headlines to grab viewers to click.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers interested about what
    you’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

  12. I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs really nice,
    keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back
    in the future. Many thanks

  13. Someone essentially help to make critically articles
    I might state. That is the first time I frequented your web page and
    so far? I amazed with the analysis you made to make
    this particular post extraordinary. Wonderful task!
