Nonnie’s 12 Days of “Authors!”

In today’s blog post, Christmas Bells and Rave Reviews Book Club, I talk about the many virtues of the club and why I love being a part of this group of nearly 600 authors and readers.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered I had been chosen as one of Nonnie’s 12 Days of “Authors!” on her blog post Nonnie Writes. This is just another reason I love being a part of this group and garnering the support of Nonnie Jules, author of Daydream’s Daughter/Nightmare’s friend, The Good Mommies’ Guide to Raising (almost) Perfect Daughters, and Sugarcoatin’ Is For Candy & Pacifyin’ Is For Kids!. Please hop on over and read her blog post and follow along to find out who is next on her 12 Days of “Authors!” list.

That Funny Little Voice in Your Head

Out of nowhere I would be driving to work and start crying as I was about to turn onto the street where my office was located.

How many times have you had that feeling deep in the pit of your stomach that tells you that something you are about to do is wrong? To read more of this blog post about that “little voice” in your head, please visit me on J.V. Carr’s blog.

I Am An Author

Today I am excited to be hosted on the blog of D. E. HaggertyIt still feels very strange to say, “I am an author”.  

It still feels strange when those words roll of my tongue! I never set out to be an author. As a child I didn’t dream of writing books like those I loved checking out from the library every week. I was going to be a nurse until I realized that being a nurse meant dealing with needles and blood. To read more of my blog post, visit D. E. Haggerty’s blog and read the rest of my guest post.  Please take a moment to leave a comment and thank her for hosting me.

How I Got Here

Today I am honored to be featured on Notes From Tabor Lane penned by Katherine Logan.  I am so thrilled at the wonderful response I have received from my fellow Rave Reviews Book Club members in supporting my time as “Spotlight” Author. 

My life was full and busy. I was a stay-at-home mother of two teen-aged daughters.  My life was wonderful and hectic.  If it weren’t for my at-a-glance calendar I would have been lost.  I was a board member of the local elementary school, a 4-H leader, president of the PTA, and a member of a local athletic booster club for young ladies at a new high school. When I wasn’t busy with community events I was playing Bunco with a group of women that I had met through PTA..to read more of my guest blog post with Katherine, please click on the link above.  Don’t forget to take a moment to leave a comment and thank her for hosting me.

Today, I have the honor to welcome Kathryn Treat to my blog for a word about her book, Allergic to Life. Kathryn is a Rave Reviews Book Club member and author. So, join the fun with Kathryn and me.

How Do You Celebrate the Holidays?

I am sure that most of your holiday celebrations do not include your family looking like this.

Kathryn Treat Holidays

This was my first Thanksgiving after returning from Dallas and moving into my safe home. This looks more like a group of people at a painter’s convention than a family sitting down to a Thanksgiving meal. My family has done its very best to do whatever it takes to keep me from having reactions. Even if it meant wearing these lovely one-size-fits-all Tyvek suits (that one size being XXXL). These lovely Tyvek suits protected me from anything my family’s clothing might contain. to read the rest of the blog post, please visit Loren’s website at the link above.  Please take a moment to thank her for hosting me.
