Hello, my name is Mae Nickson, Monster Hunter. I'm blogging for Ranee` today because she realized last Saturday that taking four days off in the middle of NanoWrimo and leaving herself only 3 days to write about 12,000 words was a bad idea. So she has no time for blogging right now as she is feverishly typing in an effort to finish a challenge she insisted earlier this month wasn't that hard. She assures me that she definitely intends to succeed and get 50,000 words before Tuesday night and that thanks to a colorful email conversation--and she means colorful quite literally, not that it contained cussing or inappropriate content--with Kristin P. she knows exactly where she's taking me to happily every after, at least I hope she does. I'd hate for her to kill me off right around 47k because she gave up hope! So rest assured that Ranee` will be back on December 1st and blogging as infrequently as usual. She just didn't want you to worry!

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
