#BlogtemberChallenge Day 1

Throughout this month I’ll be participating in Brave Love Blog’s #BlogtemberChallenge, and I am so excited to be a part of it. There will be a daily linkup over at Bailey Jean’s blog, so head over there and meet some new bloggers – I will be! Welcome to anyone who found me through the challenge!

Today’s prompt is: Imagine the front sleeve of a hard cover novel. Give us your “About the Author” so we can get to know one another, and for fun tell us what your imaginary novel would be about.

Such fun! Here goes nothing…

Leigh Anne Zinsmeister was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and has lived all over the United States, from the Midwest to the Southwest to the Northeast. When she’s not moderating Internet comments for a living, she can usually be found spending her paycheck at Trader Joe’s and getting lost on the subway around NYC. That being said, she also spends a lot of time serving at Liberty Church, drinking on rooftops and reading in sunny parks. It’s definitely more good than bad!

Leigh Anne spends her 15 vacation days a year split between visiting friends and family, and exploring new cities and countries. She wants to see and do everything! She also loves food and is a sucker for quality tacos, cheesecake and craft beer – though she’ll eat (and drink!) anything at least once.

Leigh Anne lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her friend Becca and a mouse they call Ratatouille (though he mostly stays in the walls these days).

Now as for what my novel would be about, well, that’s an easy one. I started a novel about three years ago now, for a college history class my final semester, and always intended to finish it. Someday!

My novel is a historical fiction work about a character named Katya who is a young woman during the 1917 Russian revolutions. The book chronicles her life throughout the 20th century, exploring Soviet history. Is that the nerdiest thing you’ve ever heard? Possibly, but I am nothing if not a history nerd!

What fun it’s been completing the first day of this challenge! As this post goes live I’m on my way home to NYC from a long weekend in Toronto (a new city in a new country for me AND I got to reunite with friends!), but I’m so excited to link up and get to know all of you!
