Thank you very much to Jennifer M Zeiger for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award! I’m so flattered that my fellow bloggers are finding my ramblings entertaining. It’s also a chance for me to nominate all the people who have helped and encouraged me in this new world.
Okay, so I need to share ten pieces of information about myself. Here goes:
1: I studied Biological Sciences at University. Never used it since, although I do understand Genetics.
2: In spite of my rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle when I was younger, I have never taken any recreational drugs. In fact, I’ve never even smoked a cigarette.
3: I have been swimming with dolphins. I want to do sharks next.
4: I got my first cat when I was six (come on, there had to be something about cats!) She was found as a kitten, by my dad, thrown onto waste ground in a plastic bag with two other kittens. She lived to be 17 years old.
5: As well as being able to drive a car pretty well, I can also ride a motorbike. But only just.
6: My rock music friends will like this one: I once flew to the Shetland Isles, to see a band, with no gig tickets or accommodation booked. (It all worked out fine).
7: I love haggis. I’m not just saying that because I’m Scottish; I really do.
8: However, I HATE bananas. Yes, I know they’re a good source of energy, but the texture and the taste – yuk!
9: Ever since I could read, my fail-safe method for getting away from problems is to get lost in a good book.
10: When we’re on holiday, if there’s a book-related location nearby, I drag long-suffering hubby off to visit it.
When I started this blog back in March, I didn’t know what to expect. I just had the vague idea of trying out my writing on a few unsuspecting people. I had no idea I would get so much support and meet so many fab writers and readers. Thank you!
So now to nominate ten other bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogsphere. Well, I can’t speak for anyone else, but these ten have inspired me no end. They’ve commented, advised and encouraged. Here they are:
1: Joseph A. Pinto’s Horror…Blog He’ll object to being called Sunshine anything, I suspect!
2: Romance That Rocks Your World! Nicky Wells, my fellow rock chick.
3: Rosalind Smith-Nazilli – another writer with a dark side.
5: K Nycole Lee – who allowed herself to be the subject of my first author interview.
7: J E Nice
8: Sotetangyal – Nina D’Arcangela, writer of beautiful dark words.
9: Julie Valerie’s Book Blog – another rock chick AND she introduced me to Nicky Wells, my sister in rock!
10: Elaine Jeremiah
