Sunshine Award


Much to my surprise (and joy) I found out yesterday that I had been nominated for the Sunshine Award by LindsayCummingsWrites. I am both touched and honored to receive such an award and I would encourage anyone who has not already visited her site to do so by clicking on the following link:

As is traditional, I now have to tell you ten things about myself. Forgive me if they err on the side of being a bit boring….

1. I was born, raised and still live in the UK.

2. I have only been writing for just over 12 months.

3. I have two beloved pet dogs, Tig and Tara.

4. I’m quite tall for a woman (I’m 6’0).

5. I would one day love to live in New York.

6. I won my high school long-jump competition three years in a row.

7. I once managed to burn pasta.

8. I have seven tattoos. All tastefully placed, I may add….

9. I’ve been knocked out cold twice.

10. Shhhhhhh…..don’t tell anyone, but I’m a Yankees fan….

It is also traditional that I now nominate ten blogs that I think are deserving of the Sunshine Award, and they are as follows:

Please take the time to check these excellent blogs out if you haven’t already done so.

  1. Congratulations! You have a great blog!

  2. Reblogged this on My Scribbles and commented:
    Well done, Heather!

  3. Aww thank you for your kind words! You are definitely deserving:) I too have burned pasta before 🙂

  4. Thank you, Heather! I am honored you nominated me, and I loved reading your lists of fact. I could never get that long-jump down myself, so I thought that was particularly neat! I am sharing your website on my FB Author Page at 4:30 PM (CDT)

    • Thank you for adding my blog to your FB Author page, it is very much appreciated!
      You are very welcome re the nomination as I think you have a really great blog and I enjoy reading it very much.
      The long jump thing, that probably had a lot to do with my long and willowy legs….I’ll admit that I have not tested my long-jumping abilities for years and probably wouldn’t dare to do so until after at least half a bottle of wine had been consumed! 🙂
