One Lovely Blog Award!!


lovelyblogjpg


My author pal, Tess Grant, gifted me with this award, the One Lovely Blog Award. Pretty picture isn't it? Tess has a fantastic YA series, the Kitty Irish Trilogy. Lots of suspense, witty, and entertaining read. .The first in the series is Trajectories.

Trajectories -Kitty Irish has heard all the rumors swirling around Daniel Phinney. Most of them involve a gun, a flask, and a temper. One chance encounter with the WWII veteran over a grisly find in the woods pulls the cover off the dark secrets of their small town, and Kitty is drawn into an unlikely partnership.

Armed with an antique rifle and a handful of homemade silver bullets, the two form an efficient team. Unfortunately, their game is werewolf hunting, and disaster is only a bite away.




To accept the award I have to tell you seven quick facts about me. (Try not to fall asleep through this, okay?)
1. I can't swim. Nope, I grew up in the corn fields of Central Illinois--no water playgrounds there. 
2. But I made sure my daughters could swim. One in fact was on the high school swim team and taught swim lessons!
3. I like potato chips dipped in ketchup. Especially good with a cold glass of chocolate milk.
4. I taught third grade. It is in my genes. My grandmother and mother were school teachers.
5. My dad was a funeral director. 
6. I swore I would have nothing to do with the funeral business, but I didn't keep that oath. My husband and I went into the flower business. I made tons of floral arrangements for...funerals.
7. I am a snowbird spending summers up north and winters in Florida. I still believe we should be known as sunbirds because we follow the sun.

To pay it forward, I’m tagging  a few fabulous bloggers for you to get to know better. Check them out!

Loved hearing more about you, Janet. The only thing I was aware of was you were Canadian. Knew that!

Thanks for choosing me. What an awesome honour.

LOL, Joylene. No Canadian in me, but I DO love Canada and have many Canadian friends here in our Florida park.

You are welcome. You deserve the award with your beautiful pictures and sharp writing skills.

Thank you for the honor mention JQ, that was lovely. I'm sorry, at the moment, I have no time to pass it forward. I'm in editing stage for my pub. Edit, edit, edit. You know how that is. Lot's of fun.

Lorrie, I do understand how that is. If you have a week this summer that is slow, drag this out to fill in the space..Kind of a reserve...!! I remember a short time ago how you were so hesitant about building a blog. You've come a long way, baby!

Haha, I knew that from when you traveled to Alaska. Okay, I'm making you honorary Canuck instead.
