As a member of the fab group of authors and teens we lovingly call ‘TeamTeenAuthor’ I am required, as the author of an October release, to perform a dare! The dares are mandated by our teen members, The Perfect 10. They gave me a choice of three things:
1) Cover my face in either peanut butter or marshmallow creme and share the picture.
2) Write my most embarrassing teen moment in Shakespearian language.
3) Post pictures and other links all about your celebrity teen heartthrob crush from middle school/high school. Your own Justin Beiber so to speak.
Can you guess which one I chose?
Shaun Cassidy was my HEARTHROB! OMG did I love him. Okay, so I was in elementary school, not middle or high school — but he was my one and only true celebrity crush.
I played his records over and over while singing into my curling iron. I watched every episode of The hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries tv show, in which he was the sexy Joe Hardy (and you wonder why I write mysteries!)Truth? I still watch those episodes 🙂
Look at these photos and tell me YOU wouldn’t have been in love with him. He is irresistable.
Still not convinced he was heartthrob-worthy? Well check him out on stage. If he doesn’t have you at his shirt being thrown off, he’ll get you with that butt-wiggle, just watch!
And here he is singing and acting in my favorite show back then,The Hardy Boys :
I would’ve been his baby . . .
We are also running a Scavenger Hunt with awesome prizes! See Julie’s blog for info and to enter! And have you shared your ‘blind spot’ with me yet? Enter to win here by Octoer 16.

I had a Shaun Cassidy t-shirt! I have a picture of me wearing it at a roller skating birthday party. 🙂
Oh I wanted one of those! And my friend had one of those baby blue Shaun Cassidy jackets. I wanted one so bad, I was jealous her parents bought it for her 🙂
Oh my word Laura! I loved Shaun Cassidy too….had posters of him everywhere in my room, even the ceiling!!! Those videos cracked me up!!
