Now, really, about me: I bring the crazy wherever I go, so I've been told...I make fun of myself more than anyone else ever could. I hate: the awkward silence in elevators, watches with no numbers, picky eaters, Cancer and legalism. I love: coffee, stalking Hugh Jackman, my Spanx, COMMENTS, sarcasm and writing: Middle Grade, NA, YA Paranormal and Urban Fantasy.

This will be my third year participating in the A to Z Challenge so I know full well what I am signing on for. I asked my family if I am completely NUTS. It didn't take very long for the answer to be shouted back at me from four different directions. Because the answer to that question has and always will be a great big, um, yes!!
That leads me to my big reveal. For the past two years, I have gone theme-less, claiming my crazy, ADD brain and I work best in the midst of anarchy. But when I started thinking about this year, I thought, how can going theme-less three years in a row still be considered anarchy? The very fact that I went theme-less twice already made it become routine... I may be nuts and a lot of other things but something I don't ever want to become is predictable, or even worse than that, boring.
So, for the first time in three years I decided to choose a theme. Drum roll please! This year, I'd like to take you all on a special journey and tour of my home state of New Jersey. Recently, New Jersey has been making the news and has gotten a lot of publicity because of some muscled up, loud-mouthed, big haired, and tons of make-up wearing Guidos. But this tour will be different. (Well, okay, maybe some of it will be the same, since I am a loud mouth. And I wear way too much make-up. And I am also a big Guido...) But this will be different!! Because I want to show you New Jersey through the eyes of Jaybird! Be ready to take the road less traveled by. I want to take you to all the best, out of the way places. The state of New Jersey is full of unbelievable beauty and is rich in history that is simply overlooked. So, come follow this nutty Bird on a tour through the Garden State. I promise it will be anything but boring!
Looking forward to visiting you all and seeing the clever themes you came up with again this year!!
* Oh, as an added bonus (and since crazy is clearly inherited) my daughter Faith has decided to come back and do the A-Z Challenge with me again this year.
