From Sailor to Schoolmarm
Thank you so much for having me! I’m Kenzie Cade, klutz and potty mouth aficionado. I’m so excited to be here today, a place I never thought I’d be, never dreamed of being. I’m here on GGR-Review blog as an author! Can you believe it? As of June 1st, I am a published author. My short story, Son of a Fish, is part of Dreamspinner Press’s Daily Dose 2014: Mended. And on July 16th, Never Leave will be published as part of Less than Three Press’s anthology Everybody Deserves a Home.
People ask me about the title a lot and how it came about. So, let me tell you about it.
I’m a bit of a sailor, a potty mouth extraordinaire, and I don’t have much of a filter. I’ve been shamelessly blunt for years. Embarrassing for others, not so much myself. In the past I didn’t have much of a filter. I don’t want you to get the wrong idea, my entire vocabulary does not consist solely of vulgarity, but I swear without even noticing most of the time. Well, I did. Still do sometimes.
My mother, in particular, hates it. Even growing up, I can’t tell you how many times I heard, “Language!” snapped in warning. And then my niece was born, she’s almost three now, and she picks up everything, so I had to start censoring myself or incur the wrath of my sister. Plus, I’m not so callous that I want to hear the cutest kid in the world use my kind of language. So my G-rated swearing began. Son of a fish, fudge, mother clucker are actual words used pretty much in my everyday life. On the bright side the kid isn’t running around saying shit anymore. I’m still a sailor for the most part, but I’m better censored around certain people.
