Are Authors Natural Born Liars?

This fun award was created by Lesa Holstein at Lesa's Book Critiques.

The rules are simple.
1.Thank the person who gave this to you.
2.Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3.Link to the person who nominated you.
4.Tell us up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth.
5.Allow your readers to guess which one or more are true.
5.Nominate seven "Creative Writers" who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies.
6.Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
7.Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.


So here's the fun part. Each of the Cozy Chicks will nominate a blogger for the award and will tell one lie and one truth. It's up to you to figure out which is which. Each of us will reveal the truth in our next post.

I was a runner-up in a Miss Indiana pageant.

During high school, basketball was my life. I was the star scorer, and our team went on to win the Section V Championship. There's a plaque with my name on it in the main lobby of Greece Olympia High School. If only women had the opportunity for a career in basketball, my life would have been profoundly different.

It took four years of concentrated speech therapy for me to lose my lisp. All that work was undone when I went to work for a man with a lisp. The next thing I knew, every time I'd speak to my boss, I'd be lisping up a storm, which he took as reticule. Is it any wonder my job was eliminated not too long after.

I nominate Wordplay for the "Creative Writer" Blogger Award!

I once sent Ellen Degeneres a signed copy of A Hoe Lot of Trouble after her interview with Sex and the City actress Kim Catrall turned to gardening hoes...and well, the other kind of ho, too.

I once met Oprah Winfrey at a rally taking place at the University of Cincinnati for Barack Obama and couldn't work up the courage to tell her about my books.

I nominate Babble and Blog for the "Creative Writer" Blogger Award!
Unpublished and discouraged, I once ran for public office because that was the only job where I could still make up stuff.

I play chess and am ranked with the American Chess Federation.

I nominate Dazed and Confused for the "Creative Writer" Blogger Award!

So take it from here! What's the whole truth, nothing but the truth?
