Meet Us At The Crossroads Blog Tour - Day 13



What were the last 5 books you read?

Hi Catie, thank you so much for hosting the Crossroads Tour! We are thrilled to be with you.
Karma Bites, Crescendo, The Ghost and the Goth, Girl Vs. Boy, and Jekle love Hyde (do you see a theme in those?)

Your motto is “Life is about the journey, not the destination.” Have you always lived life this way or did something make you realize it?

No, I wish I could say that had always been my motto, however, it hasn’t been. And I’ve never been asked this question! So, I’m going out on a limb here because I’ve been (surprisingly) caught off guard. Yes, something happened in my life. I lost my closest sibling to a long battle with a serious illness. It was a very emotional, painful and heartbreaking experience- one that I was unprepared for and left my whole life upside down. After he was gone, I realized I couldn’t wallow in the misery and pretty much started to chase every dream I’ve ever had. The experience made me realize that everything molds us into the people we become. I know my brother is looking down on me, proud of the things I’ve accomplished since he’s been gone.

So, not bring everyone down, I assure you there have been a lot of positives that have come out of this experience and there are many characters that share my brother’s charm, wit and sarcasm. He lives on through my writing and I’m glad I get the chance to share him with the world.

Jordan I'm so sorry for your loss, but it seems that you've turned it into a positive thing. I've always liked the idea of life being about the journey and not the destination. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

Sorry for being random, but this is really weird.
The last books you've read? Are all sitting in a pile next to me.
Really. Weird.
