Junket – definition: 1) trip; especially a trip made by an official at public expense; 2. a dessert of sweetened flavored milk set in a jelly

I’m on a blog junket with a wonderful award. Jenny at http://itsjennythewren.wordpress.com/  was kind enough to nominate me. I have to reveal 7 things about me and nominate 15 bloggers – that’s going to take some ‘travelling’ around the blog-a-sphere….

1. I have seen a ghost

2. My first book, Rumble’s First Scare began life as a prompt

3. My favorites animals are tigers and red panda‘s

4. As a youth I created abstract art

5. I’m currently the secretary of The Writers Foundation of Strathcona County

6. I would live in Italy given the opportunity

7. My favorite colour is purple

Now the tricky part choosing other bloggers.
