And the Nominees Are…

I love these unexpected surprises!  I just received the Versatile Blogger Award.  Woohoo!  A very special hank you to the lovely and talented author and poet Jo VonBargen for this wonderful honor!

Here are the rules:

1. In a post on your, blog, nominate 15 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award.

2. In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award photo.

3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.

4. In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.

5. In the same post, include this set of rules.

6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs. (I tweeted everyone)

Now, some random facts about me:

  1. I despise drinking coffee (yuck!), but I love coffee ice cream.
  1. Watching horror movies is a favorite entertainment of mine. I turn off all of the lights in the house and watch a scary slasher movie all alone.
  1. I didn’t like to play with dolls as a child, but preferred the company of my stuffed animals with tea time.
  1. I secretly want to be Nancy Drew.
  1. I’ve been given the casual title of being an “honorary member” of a police department.
  1. I write all my books barefooted.  However, there have been some days I opt for a nice pair of warm socks.
  1. My favorite place to recharge my internal battery and reflect on various things in my life is walking along the beach shoreline.

Now, more importantly, here are my nominees in no particular order:

Richard Hale Thriller & paranormal author and all around fun guy
