Well, I think the title says it all. For someone who writes as much as I do, you would think I'd have no problem writing on a blog, but well, just the word BLOG sounds so blah. If you say it over and over enough, your shoulders will slump so much you'll fold into yourself. So this will be a blog for the non-blogger as I attempt to find a topic blog-worthy. Maybe photography, maybe book and movie reviews (those are actually a lot less maybe and a lot more likely,) and maybe a few short stories here and there. Hell, I may even pick up cross-stitch just to see if it's worth blogging about.
But first, a quick introduction and such. My name is Kelly Riad. I graduated with a BA of Communications from Ouachita Baptist University in 1999 (that should give you an idea of my age without me having to actually write out the number.) I live in the Dallas, Texas, area with my husband in a house overrun by pets. I have no children because as far as I know, society still frowns upon sticking children out in the backyard with a bowl of food and water or in the garage with a litter box. As of quite recently, I am now a published author (self-published) and have even sold a few books through Amazon UK which makes me an international published author; yeah, that sounds way cooler. I love to read and write, I dabble in art when I need to feel like a better person and we won't even get into my day job because you will fall asleep from boredom before I finish explaining what I do.
Here's a not-so recent picture of me, to celebrate the 70's (or maybe 80's) which are apparently making a come-back.
