You can find links at the end of the post to Linn's books. As an inspirational romance writer I have found hers to be ones I go to when I need to fill my inspirational cup.
Okay so now I spill the beans (Linn is waiting for this part) …
First Fond Memory
My first fond memories definitely revolve around my grandparent's house. It's hard to know exactly how many are true memories and how many are memories created by the pictures I looked at in all the albums my grandma
Books and Libraries
I'm making this one heading because they truly go hand-in-hand. My parents were both readers and therefore all three of us kids were. My dad LOVED the library. He was what I like to call an unbiased reader. He read everything nonfiction or fiction. He spent hours at the library looking for obscure books while my brother and sister and I played in the 'kids room', looking at books and listening to books on cassette (I know I'm dating myself). We always had a meeting time and place in the library (it was a big library), but dad was never
This one is a little harder to answer. I'm a Gemini so my passions change from day to day! LOL One passion that never wavers is my passion for writing and books. It is the passion that has always been a constant in my life in one form or the other. I would assume most authors who spend hours toiling over the words they write feel the same way. I'm not all about books though. I have many things I feel passionate about. My family is my number one passion. I love watching my kids grow into responsible, intelligent, caring human beings. I'm passionate about their education and making sure they are well rounded, but I'm also about the things they are passionate about. Music, public speaking and for my youngest son, math. (I never thought I would be passionate about math, just ask my mom!)
Another big passion of mine is organ donation and furthering the education of others about the gift of life. My husband's brother has had two kidney transplants, one when he was 18 from his father, and one when he was 35 from me. Being a living kidney donor has taught me more about life than anything else in my 39 years. I would like to say it was an easy decision, but anyone who has ever been a living donor knows it was laced with strife and filled with the never ending questions of 'what if'. Now, almost six years later, I would do it all over again. I would still have doubts and fears, but watching the amazing
As I mentioned above writing is one of my passions, but I did very little of it from the time I left school until 2011. I was busy working and living life, but those ideas were always floating around in my mind. Eventually I found it helpful to write the ideas down and tuck them away for 'later' when I had more time. When I didn't have 3 kids under the age of 4, when I didn't have a full time job, when I didn't, when I didn't. When I didn't happened in 2011 when I suddenly didn't have a left leg. Becoming an amputee after an accident years earlier had finally left me with the time to sit down and write out that first idea I
I saved the best for last! Linn asked me to be sure I dropped somewhere in here when I first started drinking coffee. I can't say for sure, coffee has been part of my life for so long, but if I had to venture a guess I would say I was probably two the first time I had coffee. I can't say for sure, but my writer's mind can just picture my dad holding his cooled cup of coffee to my lips while he looked about over his shoulder to make sure my mom wasn't there to witness it. I can remember drinking instant Folgers (decaf of course) at my grandma's, made from more milk than coffee (the first latte for sure!), then coffee with my
Thank you so much for stopping by and learning a little bit more about me today. I hope I filled your morning, or afternoon, inspirational cup to the top!
