Six Sentence Sunday!

Ok, so I received this link from a Savvy Author's classmate and what a cool idea. Every Sunday I will post 6 sentences from my debut novel Fire and Ice. A tasty teaser meant to wet the appetite and leave you craving more! Well, at least that is the plan.

If you're like me your must-read list will have grown exponentially by the end of the day!

I'm a winner of The Versatile Blogger Award!

Many thanks to the multi-gifted Lyn Davies, who chose me as one of her five bloggers to grace with this wonderful award. Her spectacular blog merging a perfect variety of passions can be found here:

As a part of the rules for accepting this award, I have to share seven things about myself, so let's see;

1. I'm a Libra and as unbalanced as they come at the best of times, and at the worst of times...well....

2. I spend (almost) much time in bed with laptop as with my husband....don't snicker, I said almost!

3. I'm stubborn but stubbornly refuse to admit it and I appreciate the fine art of disorganized organization.

4. I LOVE chocolate, and cherry cheesecake and pizza and lemon pie and, oh did I mention chocolate??

5. I still play with dolls...okay, well technically I sculpt the masters professionally for various collectible and toy manufacturing companies, but there is still a little girl inside who loves playing with the clay, and getting to the part of designing a wardrobe and accessories for them.

6. I taught preschool for more than 15 years and learned more about the importance of play from children than I could have taught in any one lifetime.

7. I believe in magic and miracles and dreams coming true and following your bliss and reaching for the stars and never giving up and the power of play and in happily ever after....seriously, I do.
