When I'm Not Writing by Rebecca Fjelland Davis (Chasing AllieCat)


Today, as a part of the Teen Book Scene tour- I have the author of Chasing AllieCat telling us about what she does when she isn't writing. Stay tuned at the end of the post for a chance to win some Chasing AllieCat swag.


---------------------------------

If I could spend every day just riding my bike and writing and hanging out with my Newfoundland dog, Freya, I would be happy.

My children are grown, and live half way across the United States, so I don’t get to be with them nearly as often as I’d like. Being a mom is the most important and most joyful responsibility of my life.

Besides that, I am an obsessive cyclist (I ride my LeMond road bike a few thousand miles a year, and I ride a mountain bike, too). I used to race, but I don’t anymore.

I am infatuated with my Newfoundland dog Freya, and we walk a couple miles together every day. She hangs out with me wherever, whenever, I’m writing, too. I take her swimming a lot in hot weather. I have a creek running through my property, so she’s a fan of that, too.

Oh, yeah, I have a full-time job. That takes more time than anything else I do. I teach English and Humanities at South Central College in North Mankato, too. That’s why it takes so long for me to get a book done. I do love to teach, but I’d rather write full-time if I could.
