One Lovely Blog!

I’ve been tagged in the One Lovely Blog Award, by the one lovely Cassandra Page  This is an award that writers give to each other, so I am honored to have received it!

The Rules
·        You must share seven things about yourself
·        You must pass the award to seven other bloggers

So here are seven things about me you may not know
1. I started reading romance novels (Julia Garwood & Johanna Lindsey), at the ripe-old age of eleven. Yeah, it was widely inappropriate and I learnt much more about sex from them than I ever did from sex ed. Perhaps I can blame them for my warped quixotic mind? However, I have those books to thank for my love of reading, my desire to write, and my obsession for romance.
2. I started writing when I was in a drug-induced stupor. Not as bad as it sounds people. Legal, and medically required drugs. I have always wanted to write I just never believed I could. I always had a writer's brain but it wasn't until a year ago when I was ill and had way too much cough syrup, that I actually had the nerve to write something down.
3. I am a wearer of many hats. Mother of a baby and a toddler, a graphic/web designer, business owner, housewife, writer, blogger, reviewer, and I am still technically employed in my government job.
4. I am terrified of public speaking. I can deal with nearly any emergency situation with grace and ease, but stand me up on front of a crowd and I shake like a leaf. Not so good if you want to pitch your MS to agents and conferences! I will work on that.
5. As a child I suffered from learning difficulties. Ironic since I grew to excel at learning as an adult. I attribute it to the bulling I encountered in my early years. To me it is tangible proof of how a child's environment can affect all aspects of their life and development.  
6. I am a chronic Yo-Yo dieter! Enough said.
7. If I couldn't be a writer my dream would be to run a fabulous online matchmaking service. I love online dating. Yes, I am married so I can't use it myself, but I love interfering in the love-life of others helping my single friends browse profiles. See, quixotic mind and romance obsession.
The seven people I tag are:


  1. Thanks for the follow!

    Lisa from I Feel So Unnecessary

  2. Omg, I started reading romance novels in Grade 7! And Julie Garwood was SO a favourite (I still have Honor's Splendour, sigh, Duncan...). Also, I would take a bullet in the leg before getting up in front of a crowd to speak (it's why I got married in a foreign country). Thanks for including me, Amber, it's fascinating to see how we all tick, eh?

    1. I still have all my Julie Garwoods :) Smart choice with the wedding, I nearly passed out walking down the isle. My sister (maid of honor) thought she would have to catch me during the vows. lol
