Georgia Housworth

Biography

Hey Y’all
I’m a Southern belle, if you couldn’t tell from my greeting. That doesn’t mean I’m walking around in a hoop skirt and quoting Scarlet O’Hara. I think it just means I have a healthy amount of eccentric in my gene pool, sweet tea is customary, and dessert is expected. That may also explain the size of my derriere, but I may be oversharing.
I am married to a wonderful man that understands that pajamas are a legitimate work uniform as long as you claim to be a writer. We have two rotten teenagers who seem to need me less and less every day; that is until they need a ride to the mall or hockey practice. At that time I become a witty and wonderful mom whose beauty has no equal…as long as I don’t ask them to do the dishes.
At the ripe old age of 32, I decided to go back to school and get my degree. When I was younger I dreamed of becoming a photo journalist. When I realized I had a tendency to cut most of the heads off my pictures, I dropped the photo part and decided to major in journalism and mass communications instead. Fast forward a few years and I’m not any better at taking pictures, but I have a degree along with countless hours of volunteering logged at the communications department of my local courthouse that I can never get back. And guess what? I don’t actually like the news. Too many wackos, murderers, and child predators out there. I have zero desire to tell their stories. I want to tell my own.
I eventually stopped volunteering at that depressing courthouse when I came to terms with my dream career being more of a nightmare. I wasted a few tissues on feeling pathetic and then I began to look on the bright side: Let’s face it, pajamas on the couch with a laptop is way better than an ugly pantsuit in a beige office any day of the week. I got serious about putting together my own book, mostly because poor is not a good look on me and my daughter likes clothes…A lot. This is my first attempt and I’m hoping is doesn’t completely stink. Let me know what you think.
Happy Reading!
XOXO,
Georgia
