Name: Kristin Schmidt
Where do you live? Huntington, NY
Favorite cookie & why (from Connecticut Cookie Company) : Quick Fix, duh. Well, first of all the “k” ending “Quick” is for “Kristin” and secondly, but most obviously, it’s the most delicious thing on the planet. Perfect sweet and salty combo and toffee is my 2nd favorite thing to eat after peanut butter.
What you want to be when you grow up? I guess I’d like to be me. I’m pretty happy and pretty grown up. But if I get to continue to grow, I’d like to be an author you’ve actually heard of.
Website (if you have one): I love www.brainpickings.org for the great writing and inspirational viewpoints on diverse subjects tied to literature. And www.satoproject.org to support the indomitable group of rescuers I adopted one of my sweet dogs from.
What do you do for fun? I love to read and always have 2 books going- one fiction, one non-fiction, so that’s my quiet personal fun. For social fun, I love to have people over for game nights and healthy food and made up cocktails using Connecticut Cookie Company’s Double Strength Vanilla!
How do you want to be remembered? I want to be remember for being thoughtful and generous. And as a late-blooming writer who makes everyone laugh.
