-Napping is Encouraged
-Eating is Mandatory

[conversation with my father]
me: Do you want my eggnog?
me: It makes my tongue feel fuzzy.
me: Maybe I put too much whiskey in. I've never had eggnog with whiskey in it.
father: What are you talking about? We don't have any whiskey.
me: It's in the cupboard over your stove.
father: That's tequila.
As you can tell, I'm not the biggest drinker.
But a Merry Christmas was had by all!
Christmas At My Parents: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly
My name's Karen Akins. And my debut YA sci-fi novel LOOP is coming out October 21, 2014 with St. Martin's Press. It's all sorts of time travelly goodness. I'm a self-professed geek--also a wife to Hubbykins, a mom to the Pea and Boo, and a follower of Jesus. And, occasionally, I find time to vacuum. I'm repped by the marvelous Victoria Marini at Gelfman Schneider Literary Agency.
