About Me

My name is Cher Armstrong, also known as Speedy Hobbit. I'm a USATF athlete in racewalking for the Raleigh Walkers club team.

I just graduated from Queens College in Queens borough in New York City. I majored in Library and Information Studies. I was also the secretary of Queens College Circle K (a service-oriented organization) and the vice president of Environmental Club and the Library and Information Studies Student Association (LISSA for short). I was also a member of the Center for Ethnic, Racial and Religious Understanding (CERRU for short), the Volunteer Corps, and GLASA (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Alliance- though I'm asexual so none of those). I gave campus tours as a Student Ambassador, organized the Fall 2012 Midnight Run (a food, clothing and toiletry drive for homeless persons) with over a dozen student clubs. That was especially awesome because the executive boards of clubs that NEVER interacted before that event met one another and a lot of new partnerships formed that day.

I work as a personal trainer, receptionist and salesperson. I also like to write (I know, obvious fact here) and aspire to be a published author. I'm a member of Riverhead Kiwanis. Needless to say, I wear many hats. I could be called a Jill of All Trades. Not really an expert in anything but I know enough to get by about a plethora of things.

2. 11 Most Foolish Battle Strategies of the Past 500 Years (Written by Kiran Mani's history professor in CC (Common Calendar) 3000- a sort of frivolous write I did when bored to develop my world a bit)
2. Sharing is Caring, CC3001- 5-year-old Folco Foxtrot just started school and isn't exactly used to having to share with other kids- he might have siblings but they all have their own things.

Read Requests
I do accept read requests, but be warned that I rarely read and especially rarely review poetry. I'm far more fond of prose. Also, I'm definitely not the love song, love poetry, love story type. I can also be a space cadet about reciprocating reviews. The best thing you can do is send me a read request (for a story or book preferably) after you review one of my stories or chapters to stare at me until I get bothered enough by my RR count to get to it.

I think it's just based on the raw numbers of people clicking on and reading your book.

What does USATF stand for? Is that a part of the military?

I've come a cross some of that. I get confused and wonder if they're attempting an epic poem... then I realize they aren't...
