If you really want to hear about it, I go by B.C. Spines, because my initials are B.C., because my name’s Brittany C. Nice to meet you! I’ve been telling stories for a while now—-since before I could really write, and I’d draw these scribbles on a page and read it out loud. But I can write now, and apparently well enough to be a graduate student in a master’s program for library and information science!

In addition to having chronic homework obligations, I also work full time in the youth services department at my library. I literally get paid to do arts and crafts and encourage literacy in children–how cool is that?!

As for my hobbies, I like to write, read books and comics, make YouTube videos, draw, paint, photograph, journal, drink tea, listen to music, hike, practice yoga, and meditate. I’m a serial hobby collector, so I’m also teaching myself how to crochet and play the piano. I have two cats, who I like to make fun of even though I love them, and I have a very incredible significant other, who inspires me to be a better person every day, and who has helped me find the truest happiness I’ve ever known. And also I have a family, who you can blame for the way I turned out. (Love you guys!)
