A break from your regularly scheduled program

Whew, is it Friday already? Sorry finals are next week, so I am just going to duck in real quick and chime in my 2cents. Which is about all I can contribute to this week's topic.

I've thought about it, and mulled it over, and really ... I have nothing to say.

I haven't reached the stage of "professional" in any field yet.

I've worked in retail, some some temp work for the post office, and done odds and ends here and there. I am one semester (crossing fingers) away from graduation with my very own degree though, so I am close. I am almost a grown-up. LOL

I have seen some influence in my writings, but it isn't so much my field (since I don't yet have one) as it is my passion -- biology.

Yep, I have tossed in tidbits of biology every where I can, from pondering if monogomous gay werewolves would really be natural giving the animal instinct to mate and procreate (Taming the Wolf), to using studying for a biology exam and the whole taxonomy of organisms as a device to get my characters naked in an as yet unpublished piece.

Then there is my naughty spanking story that involves the scientific method and a inventive way to test it out. (Arianna's Passion For Learning in Naughty Spanking Stories From A To Z volume 2).

Oh, and who can forget the whole string theory and parallel universes that I am played with (Parallel Attraction). Or the virus I gave to the vampire race (Blood Slave).

I also had an evil, mad scientist try to uncover the secret to the vampire and shifter phenomenon. (Fangs and Fur) Things didn't go so well for him I'm afraid.

I'm sure there are others, but right now coherent thought is competing with scietific names in my brain as I am trying this post during a break from studying. I do need to get back to it, so I guess I shoudl wrap up.

I will leave you all with this last tidbit however. Should you ever need to know the answer to the Jeopardy question of the order of classification of organisms, just remember ...

King Phillip Came Over For Good Sex

Got that?

Now it should be easy to also remember that the correct order is: Kingdom, Phyllum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species

Sorry, I couldn't resist. My major isn't just biology, it is also education. : ) Hopefully, you learned something. Other than that I am a smart ass I mean.

Back to hitting the books I go!


  1. Hi Michelle,

    It's amazing how much of our 'real life' creeps into our fiction.

    I remember reading Arianna's Passion for Learning. Great story.



  2. Hi, Michelle,

    Thanks for the Jeopardy tip...;^)

    Seriously, I think it's clear that your life/work/study experiences have significantly affected your writing. Don't be so modest about not being "professional".

    And good luck with your exams!


  3. Thanks Ash -- I hope to rework that one a little bit this summer and get it a wider audience. : )

    Lisbaet -- Thanks hon. I have my fingers crossed for favorable outcomes.

  4. I love it when I can trust a writer to have the science right.

  5. "using studying for a biology exam and the whole taxonomy of organisms as a device to get my characters naked in an as yet unpublished piece"

    Lol! I found the wording of that rather amusing. :)

    I agree with Lisabet, it seems pretty clear that your non-writing interest in biology has influenced your writing—and in quite interesting ways it seems!

    Thank you for sharing, and very best with your finals!

  6. Kathleen -- Indeed it is always nice. : ) I hate when I get jerked out of a story because the author got the details wrong. I would rathe rit be vague and let me fill it in myself.

    Emerald -- Thanks hon. : )
