My First Romance...and a quiz!

My NaNoWriMo novel has turned out to be a YA romance, written in verse. My other novel in verse, SHARRA'S WAR, has some romance in it, but the romance is not at the heart of the story. This newest book, tentatively titled HOUSE OF BONES, is my first attempt at writing a true teen romance.

In writing this book, I have taken several mental journeys back in time, back to the days of my own teen crushes, romances, and heartbreaks. And eventually, to finding my true love.

So in honor of teen romances and true loves, I decided to post a little quiz about my own past romances. If you think you might know the answers, or if you want to guess, put your answers in the comments. I'll post the answers in next Monday's post. I'm not offering a prize, but you might have a chance to earn some bragging rights!

So, without further ado, how old was I when...

1. I had my first real boyfriend?
2. I experienced my first kiss?
3. I suffered my first heartbreak?
4. I met my true love?
5. I got engaged?
6. I got married?

If anyone gets all of these questions right, I'll post a picture of me and my hubby when we were first dating.


  1. I think you should post a picture anyway. :)

    Numbers and I don't get along that well, so whereas I should know some of these answers with 100% surety I am, in actuality, guessing. I am just that awful. Sorry in advance!

    I am looking forward very much to Monday's post.

  2. OMG, so hard since I didnt' know you till after you had three kids! But I'll give it a try.

    I do know you got married very young!
