Best Moment Award…

October 22, 2013

Virtuous – definition: conforming to good moral and ethical principals; also, chaste

It is my great pleasure to accept and thank Steph at for awarding me this lovely award. It always makes me feel good to share them. As these awards require there are rules. Firstly, I have to disclose seven things about myself, and then pass along nominations.


Seven Random Things About Me:

My first interview as a published author was on West Edmonton Mall’s pirate ship. See link at the bottom of the page.

I found my soul’s home when I honeymooned in Italy.  I yearn to go back for an extended stay and write. (Or if possible to live there).

Writing came late in my creative life – now I am trying to catch up. Thanks to a wonderful group of writers I have found my passion.

I am full of love for my two children. They are special individuals and I am proud to be their mother.

When I emigrated to Canada I had no idea how it would change my life. It has been a delightful and enlightening journey. Long may it continue.

My New Year’s resolution to write a blog post a day has given me a writing discipline I did not envisage.

This November will see me participate in my fourth National Novel Writing Month. My story is a cowboy romance – a new genre for me. Wish me luck.

Now the nominations:

And for those of you who would like to see my interview  with Bill Roberts – Arts Talk Online – 7th December 2011  Go to 8.23 on time bar.
