Questions from Constance

  1. What was the subject of your first blog? It was entitled “Show Some Love” and was encouraging readers to like, tag, and review the works of their favorite authors.
  2. What was your favourite subject in school? Algebra
  3. Have you ever done anything in your life you’re truly ashamed of? Absolutely. (What? You thought I would tell you what it was? Ummmmm….no!)
  4. What’s your proudest moment in life so far? I don’t know how I would pick just one. The births of my kids, the realization that they have grown into the kind of people any parent would be proud of, the minute the love of my life placed a ring on my finger…there are far too many to pick one.
  5. What did you type into the search box when you surfed the internet for the first time? Are you kidding? Do you know how many years ago that was? I barely remember what I ate yesterday and you want me to remember that? I have no earthly idea.
  6. What’s the worst thing you ever got in trouble for when you were at school? I was setting up my exhibit for a Science Fair and instead of going right back to class I stayed to wander through the other exhibits to see what was there. I missed the rest of the class and that teacher was not known for her sense of humor or patience. She was not pleased. She basically considered it as skipping class and reported it as such.
  7. What’s your favourite holiday? Christmas
  8. What is your favourite genre of book to read? Westerns (both contemporary and historical)
  9. Favourite TV show? How It’s Made on the Science Channel
  10. Favourite season of the year? Fall. The beautiful palette of God’s paintbrush makes everything seem just right in my world.
  11. What was the last book you read and who wrote it? The Rancher Takes A Bride (The Burnett Brides Book 1) by Sylvia McDaniel
