Hello Booksie community, I am Tanja. This is the inside of my mind, I'm sure you won't enjoy the ride.

I'm really bad at these ''explain yourself'' bio things, because, is there really a way for a person to explain themselves as a WHOLE and compress it into a few simple paragraphs? I find this very complicated...nearly impossible.

I'm a 1950's housewife trapped inside the body of a modern-day young woman. I find Zen in my writing, drawings, a hot cup of tea, taking care of my six cats, caking make up on my face (as well as on others), and taking wacky self-portraits of myself. Born & raised in New York City, I'm sure it's not hard to realize where I get my rough edge. Not to worry, underneath all the rage and sensitivity about my pizza crust, is a very sweet marshmallow. If I could rub my own ego a bit, I'd award myself the 'I make things happen' award, because I really don't let up when I want something to happen for me. Same with my goals, same with my dreams.


Don't stand in my way or try to bring me down, because I WILL eat you alive. 

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." - Marilyn Monroe. “I'd like to wear a rainbow every day, and tell the world that everything is OK. But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back. Until things are brighter, I'm the Man in Black.”- Johnny Cash.
