So who am I, anyway?
In real life, I go by Bon Tindle and I'm pretty boring by most standards. I'm am awesome cook, I enjoy classical music (mixed in with a little 80s hairball stuff) and I read just about anything I can get my hands on. I study for giggles, and I am a crazy cat lady. I work in the accounting department for a great company, and enjoy wrestling the numbers and tax laws that give me purpose. I live in Springfield, MO and have been here for most of my life. I travel a fair amount, but somehow I keep coming back to tornado country. Go figure.
When I'm not figuring taxes and budgets, I am a writer. Normally, I prefer fiction but I have really enjoyed writing for two different political blogs. I am often amused that my fiction writing is done under my real name, and my nonfiction is published under Bon The Geek. From news, opinion, fiction or blogging, if I have an idea I am not at peace until it's written and out of my head. I can't describe it better than that, it's a mad itch.
Writing is my main passion, but not my only one. I am also a violinist, and have found out why musicians drink so much. I'm in my fifth year now, and I play with a local group and a couple of friends. We are ready to play some shows this year, and will be doing a nursing home goodwill tour where we do a good deed and give our practices purpose.
I have a little thing for chocolate. I don't like outdoors, I prefer my climate controlled (on the cool side). I am married to a really nice guy, a furry gentle giant who makes me smile every day. I can't watch animal movies because I cry every single time. I love Lita Ford with the power of a thousand flaming suns, for being fierce and unafraid to be raw and sexy. I could eat cashew chicken three meals a day (and have done so). I speak enough Spanish to order chicken and start a bar fight, and I am a Scrabble champion and would like to compete someday. I have been known to ask people to pull my finger at inappropriate times.
I think that's enough random factoids. If the above didn't answer your question, feel free to send me an e-mail.
