  • Display the award picture in your post.
  • Nominate 12 other bloggers who are funny, inspiring and most important of all ENTERTAINING!

 

WHY DID YOU START A BLOG IN THE FIRST PLACE?

I’m a wanna-be writer!  I also love books and I wanted to be able to incorporate  writing and reading.  Maybe throw a little bit of my art in there!  I’ve met so many great people by blogging, and I love that, too.

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK?

Just one?!  That’s tough, but I think I will go with a Harlan Coben.  Fool Me Once.  I picked this up in Walmart last year, knowing nothing about the author, or even what I wanted to read.  I hadn’t read a book in forever and I needed something to take my mind off things.  This book fit the bill.  It was full of unexpected twists and turns and was just what I needed at the time.   It started me reading the rest of the Harlan Coben books available at the library.

 

WHAT DO YOU DISLIKE THE MOST?

Arrogance.  People who think they are better than others.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD AT THE MALL?

I love this Japanese outlet that makes this chicken, rice, bean sprouts and teriyaki sauce dish.  It’s so good, and healthy, too 🙂  After that I go right for the coffee and a doughnut 😉

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PAST TIME?

Reading, writing, painting, hiking, camping, swimming.
