Interview with a Creative Liar

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by SarahAnn at Musings about writing stories for Children's magazines.  If you've been curious about that market--check it out here.  Thanks SarahAnn!

And apparently I'm a creative liar. :)  Thanks Bethany and Roxy for this award.  You guys are pretty great liars *ahem* I mean, writers yourself.

I have to post six lies and one truth about myself. Can you uncover the truth? Here goes:

(Answers have been added)

1.  I've seen a real live pegasus. Nope.
2.  My first job was walking the tight-rope in the circus. As cool as that sounds...no.
3.  I love repelling.  Did it once.  Not a fan of heights.
4.  I made the Olympic gymnastics team at the age of twelve but broke my leg and couldn't go. No, but I know someone who did.
5.  I sang backup in a Legends concert. Believe it or not, I did.
6.  I don't know how to drive a stick-shift.  Learned at the age of 33.
7.  I'm a distant cousin to J.K. Rowling. I wish!

Guess away people.  (I'll post answers on the weekend.)

Okay, now to award some AWESOME liars writers who help me enjoy life with their words:

Where Ladybugs Roar
Robin's Nest
Where Sky Meets Ground
Leiff Musings


  1. Those are some pretty great lies, lady. I think I'm going to go with #6, although #3 is tempting. :-)

  2. Congrats on the award. I think I'm going to go with you love repelling as the truth. Maybe?

  3. Now these will be some hard lies to uncover! I'm guessing that 1,3,5 are farses.

    Congratulations Catherine!

  4. I'm going with four (spirit of Olympics and all that). ;)

  5. Congrats and thanks! I'm going to pick #7 because that would be way cool if true.

  6. Catherine,
    I didn't know that you were published twice in Highlights! Congratulations!

  7. That's awesome Catherine. Not many people can sing backup! Did you dance too?

  8. Thanks everyone, it was fun to read your guesses.
    Jema, thanks.
    Natalie, NO! Dancing is not my forte.

  9. Have you ever heard about the mating habits of the Madagascan newt? No? Well then I could tell you just about anything and you would believe me, not so? That's lieing. To me they could all be true, and why not? You are a great story teller, and thats the truth.

  10. Very cool. Those are funny too. Although a certain pegasus question seemed pretty obviously false LOL :P


Thank you so much for your visit. I love hearing from you and dearly appreciate your comment!
