Readership Award Nomination

Thanks, Alison at The Life and Writings of Sleepy Joe, for the nomination! Alison had some fun questions for me, so read on...

Why do you blog?

I love to meet fellow authors and readers, and my blog has helped me meet so many!

If you were trapped on a desert island, what book, DVD, food, cartoon character, and childhood game would you bring?

Book? Let's start with anything by Bear Grylls because I'd need the survival help. Although I imagine a good escape book like one of the Harry Potters or even a good cry like one of Kristin Hannah's would be comforting on a desert island.

DVD: Cast Away (Tom Hanks could empathize!)

Food? Easy. Yogurt. I can't live without it.

Cartoon character is a bit of a challenge for me. Let's go with Elmer Fudd because I imagine his gun would come in handy.

And I'd bring the old-fashioned Guess Who game to keep me and Elmer busy.

What is your favorite thing about yourself?

I'm optimistic

What one word best describes you?


If you could have a lifetime supply of any candy/candy bar, what would it be?

Peanut M&Ms because they are my husband's absolute favorite, and I'd love to watch the look on his face when he sees that lifetime supply!

What fictional character do you relate to most?

Okay, I'll go with the first one that popped into my mind. Although I haven't read the Little House on the Prairie books for year--years!--I do remember as a little girl imagining myself as the courageous Laura Ingalls Wilder (perhaps it was the name), growing up in those wide-open spaces. (Oh wait, she isn't fictional!) Woops.

If you were to write the story of your life, what would you call it?

"She Tried" lol


  1. I love how practical you answers to the desert island questions are! And as for your life story, would the back cover be "She suceeded!"

    Thanks for joining in!

    1. What a fun idea, Alison! Thanks again for the nomination. And, oh boy, I like your idea for the back cover. I hope it's accurate! :)

  2. Ha Ha, I loved this interview. All of the answers were so witty and fun. I too would like to see someone's face when they get a lifetime supply of m&ms!
    Does bear grills really have books? If he does i would love to read them. He is a favorite around our house. My husband dressed up as him for halloween at work and carried a water bottle filled with 'pee' to drink all day (lemonade:)
