Blog Star: Hi, I'm Micah

This is my first time participating in Blog Star
and I'm excited about discovering new bloggers and blogs to follow.

I'm an Iowa girl -- by birth and by choice. 
I'm a thirtysomething -- who feels more like twentysomething most of the time.
I'm a writer -- by nature and by profession.
I'm a hopeless romantic -- despite my best efforts to squash those feelings.

I love 
Texas Rangers baseball, 
live music (especially if it involves a boy on a guitar or at a piano), 
guilty pleasure TV shows, 
and cats.

My brain is totally writing-centered.  I'm always thinking about what I'm writing or what I'll be writing next.  I've published two romance novels, "You'll Never Know" and "A Promise Worth Breaking." My third, "Riffs of Regret" is currently in the editing stages.

I started Unabashedly Me to feed this writing addiction and it's become a great way to meet new people and learn about other viewpoints. As the title suggests, I attempt to be my most authentic self in my posts. I write about what's on my mind, share music I love and chronicle my weight-loss journey (I've lost 30 lbs. in the past year).

Here are some of the most popular posts in Unabashedly Me history:

Unabashedly Me is one of three blogs I author -- one of the others is accessible only to my closest friends and the other public one, Baseball Is My Boyfriend, is where I gush/rant about all things Rangers.
