Penny Valentine is not my real name. I chose the pseudonym Penny Valentine for multiple reasons. One of the reasons is not because of the journalist Penny Valentine (whom I didn’t realize existed until after I chose the name) who’s birthday happens to be my birthday (just 40 some-odd years before my year)! No, that just happened coincidentally! I actually chose the name because even though my actual name and personality go hand in hand, it just doesn’t suit me in the artistic world.


Depending on when you read this, I am a 20 something year old adult living in Ohio. It is now November, and we have witnessed sun, rain, cold, frost and more sun… no snow though! I live with my husband, Ryan, and our 3 kiddens (cats that act like toddlers) Lucy, Prudence, and Eleanor – all after Beatles songs.

I started blogging in November 2016. After reading so many books, I decided I wanted to tell the world about them; it’s my evil way of trying to control the world and what they’re reading (hehe)!

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
