I got the Sunshine Award!

WOW! Good news...I got the Sunshine Award from Michelle at http://indiewritersreview.wordpress.com/! THANKS!

Thanks Michelle! I will display it proudly. :)

Now the award does comes with some rules…

1.Include the award logo in the post.
2.Link back and thank those that nominated me.
3.Answer 10 random questions.
4.Nominate 5 other bloggers and link them to the award in their comments.



My 10 Questions I pulled from various interviews I've given over the past year:



1. Who are your favorite authors and what is it that strikes you about their work?
I really have to recommend Andre Norton. She began publishing back in the 1950s and the genre is sci-fi and fantasy and good for all ages. She makes you feel as if you are a part of the story-it's my hope to emulate that feeling for my readers.


2. If you were stranded on a deserted island, and were allowed to bring 3 items with you, what would they be?
Let's see, you can't do without the 3 C's: a lifetime supply of Coke, Chocolate, and Charmin.


3. Where do you see yourself in five (5) years?
The most successful writer on the planet! You can never dream too big, right?


4. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Right here in America! We have so many freedoms and have so much that it is a blessing.
 


5. Do you prefer ebooks, paperbacks or hardcover?
I like ‘em all.
 

6. If you could be any character (male or female) from your book who would you pick? And why?
I would be Bathsheba. In Silver Knight, she already has a connection to several of the characters (and if you’ve read it and were paying particular attention, then you may have found all the connections), but readers will learn a lot more about her in book two. She’s an exciting character.
 

7. Where and/or how did you get your inspiration to write "Silver Knight?"
I was used to being very busy and moved to help take care of my dad, which left me with some time on my hands. As a teacher, I was also used to a lot of interaction with my students, so after my move, I missed them. I felt like this book was a way for me to re-connect with them in a new and exciting way. And I always loved the movies Dead Again and On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, which both deal with reincarnation in a fun way and I recommend everyone watch them.
 

8. What were the best parts about writing this book?
The best part for me was getting to spend more time with my kids and my dad.
 

9. Do you manage to write every day? Do you ever suffer from writer’s block?
Yes, in some form or fashion, I write every day and occasionally have a block. I just call my brother and bounce some ideas around and that usually clears it all up. Then I'm off and running again.
 

10. What do you do when you’re not writing? Any hobbies or party tricks? :)
Well, of course, I love to read! But I also cook, crochet, and garden. Sorry, no party tricks (other than chasing the chickens). L


And my nominations for the Sunshine Award are:

1. Kittie @ http://kittiehoward.blogspot.com/ as she seems to have a blog that promotes kindness, helping others (especially fellow bloggers), and personal inspiration and growth.
