Today features Devon Youngblood
Tell us about yourself. I currently work two jobs and I am hoping to eliminate the part time one so I can focus more on writing. I have been married to my wonderful husband since 2001. He is my biggest supporter. As much as I love writing and reading I am a TV addict. I love to watch my favorite shows and I can guarantee there is something on every night of the week and my shows have taken a back seat to my writing. I not your average bubbly person, I stick to myself alot and just watch the scene around me unfold, I listen to others and I am always inside my own head. I am a hopeless romantic and I have an old soul. I can usually be easily entertained.Share with us some of your interests My interests aside from writing and reading is music and TV. My husband has been known to call me a TV addict.
What makes you the person you are? The way I grew wasnt the best. Ive had some pretty tough years growing up and it has been far from easy. When I was younger I just made the decision that I would not be the person I statistically would be. My husband has been the greatest thing to happen to me. And he makes me want to be a person in general.
