Hi there! I’m Britney Gulbrandsen.
I’ve loved books since I was a little girl. And I’m thinking love might be an understatement here. It’s more of an infatuation. Before I could even read, I insisted on bringing stacks of books taller than myself to bed each night. That love of books has never left me. Now I have more books than shelves to stack them on and the list keeps growing.
I’ve got a bit of a type-A personality and I’m obsessed with making lists. So obsessed, in fact, that I’ve got notebooks lying around my house filled with lists. My husband makes fun of me because 95% of the time I’m asked, “What are you doing?” the answer is either making a list or planning my day/week/month/life. I love planning, organization, time management, and goal setting. And I love implementing this love into my writing life.
I write, mostly middle grade and young adult novels, and short stories. When I’m not writing my own stuff, I’m writing with my husband. We spend our romantic dinner dates discussing characterization and plot points, followed by trips to the bookstore to check out first lines and expand our book collection.
On the blog you’ll find updates on my writing journey, productivity tips for writers, insight into my writing process (and tips to fine-tune your own), and all things bookish.
