Author Bio Mad Libs, Going Dark in December (But you can still find me on Operation Awesome)

I'm in the homestretch on the second draft of my current WIP, and will be undertaking some newer writing projects in December, so The Writer Librarian will be going dark until New Year.

I'll still be on Operation Awesome every other Monday (December 15 and December 29) so feel free to find me there. And in the meantime, here's some Author Bio Mad Libs I borrowed from Operation Awesome's newest contributor, Wendy Nickel. 

 Step 1: Jot down a word or phrase for each of the descriptions below:

    Full name:
    Plural noun:
    Gerund (non-finite action verb, usually ending in -ing):
    College major:
    2-3 random letters:
    Famous author:

Step 2: Scroll down and fill in your answers in the author bio below!

(your name) is a (genre) author who has written about everything from (noun) to (adjective) (plural noun) and has won a (award) for his/her nonfiction book, "The (occupation)'s Guide to (gerund)." S/He lives in (state) with his/her family and (number) (adjective) (animal)s. S/He is a (college major) graduate of (2-3 random letters) and has enjoyed (gerund) in (place), (gerund) (beverage), and playing (sport) with his/her close friend and mentor, (famous author). S/He aspires to someday be the first full-time author to (verb) on the moon.

Here's mine (some is true, most is fiction):

Karen McCoy is a YA speculative fiction author who has written about everything from shoes to exciting eyes and has won a Darwin Award for her nonfiction book, "The Librarian's Guide to Playing." She lives in California with her family and five beastly goats. She is a Creative Writing graduate of WER and has enjoyed moving in bookstores, jogging lemonade, and playing golf with her close friend and mentor, Douglas Adams. She aspires to someday be the first full-time author to fly on the moon.

Happy December, everyone!
