10 Things You Never Knew About: Christy Barritt

10 Things You Never Knew About ME: Christy Barritt

1. I have a houseplant named Martha.

2. I’ve visited five foreign countries and look forward to visiting more.

3. I used to want to be a spy for the CIA.
4. I’ve only ever won one contest in my life and the prize was kissing a pig. No more contests for me.

5. I’m addicted to salt and vinegar potato chips with Coca-Cola.

6. I can be neurotically insecure at times. Perhaps that’s why my books have the voice of someone who writes chick-lit. I’m so there.

7. I like to play with my toes. I know—gross!

8. I was in a band after college and we put out a CD. My friend found one at the thrift store the other day. Crazy!

9. My mom looks just like former first lady Barbara Bush.

10. I sing all the time. Just ask my husband.

Now, tell Christy one or two things about YOU, and win a $5.00 Starbucks gift card. Winner will be drawn in ONE WEEK!

Happy Reading!

Enjoyed learning more about Christy! Thanks girls.

Ok, here's me:~

I've never seen You've Got Mail - according to my friends that is unacceptable!

I love Lego and adore their Creator sets. Most of the constructions around our house are mine!

Don't include me in the draw, Deena :)

The very first time I ever won anything it was a cemetary plot. I thought that was VERY creepy. I still enter contests though. ;)

I love salt and vinegar chips too, but not with Coke.

I have killed every house plant I ever received. Good thing I am better with pets.

I MUST make my bed before I leave the house.

Wow, I'm the first to play! I love learning about authors this way. Here are my two:

1. I got married in the Bahamas because I won it all on a radio contest.

2. My husband nicknamed me "Gwendolyn" when we were dating.

I have three names besides my maiden last name and my married last name. So that means I have five names. Yikes! Depends on the day I'm having which one I go by. Just kidding. I use my third name for most things and my first name for middle. I'm just one confused person.

My kitchen is apple theme. I dream apples.

I'd love to win a starbucks coupon. Thanks for the contest.

I had a plant named Sally when I was younger.

I am also addicted to Salt & Vinegar chips, but not with Coke. I love Diet Dr. Pepper instead.

Thanks for the chance at a Starbucks gift card.

I'm a contest-aholic! I won countless books, a TV, and a few other things that I can't remember right now. :)

Please enter me in the drawing!



I am addicted to diet soda with caffeine and neeed to go into rehab along with my husband- we have 2- 2 liter bottles a day habit sometimes--thats our addiction.

I carry at least 3 books with me at all times- in purse and totebag- ok just realized there are three in the totebag and 2 in my purse- bad..bad bad, and also carry a camera with me everywhere I go.

I am a cancer survivor twice over and did not go the normal route- was a guinea pig testing for experimental procedures. Someday you may see me in a movie- ok someone acting as me haha!

I sing loud and proud with the stereo on in the car while driving- most of the time alone haha again

If I'm going away, I have at least three books with me.

I love planning vacations and trips...I even do it for others...I live vicariously through them :)

I can never get enough chocolate
It seems like I'm always trying to lose weight...maybe because of the prior comment? :)
