Bridget A. B. Halfaker

Biography

Felt pen tattoos, unicorn cat costumes, fog hearts on the shower door, and a 'c' button on the keyboard that doesn't like to be pushed. These are a few things in Bridget Halfaker's life. Mother to an almost 8 year old boy, she spends much of her time throwing wiffle balls onto the roof and watching them roll back down. A special education teacher by day, she is kept constantly on her toes. As of today she has completed 5% of her goal to visit every country in the world. The one thing Halfaker would love to do before she dies is be a foley artist for an indie film.

Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I am currently working on a Christmas story inspired by true events that happened to me. The story follows Christine Frost, a joyful, carefree photographer, who is struck down by a car on Christmas Eve. She is thrust into a world of anger, fear, and loneliness; memory loss and a body that won't work as well anymore don't help the situation any. While she searches for love and acceptance from others, she ends up opening her heart to a teenage boy who is suffering his own losses. They help each other become better, happier people, and Christine discovers the power of community.
Who are your favorite authors?
Lois Lowry's "The Giver" (I'm disappointed that they made it into a movie, although my office mate loves the movie), Sir Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials", but mainly just the first two and 2/3 of the series (VERY happy with the movie of the first book- "The Golden Compass"), Lemony Snicket's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" (I could give or take the movie on this one, though I love Jim Carrey), Steven Moffat's "Blink" [Doctor Who: Season 3, Episode 10], Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice". I also really really love Teri Sloat's "Farmer Brown Shears His Sheep: A Yarn About Wool". Adorable sheep butts and a great rhythmic cadence.
