The Versatile Blogger Award - I received it!!!

I Received "The Versatile Blogger Award" !!!

Thank you to my friend and awesome writer, Lynette Sofras, author of "The Apple Tree". You should really check out her wonderful blog at
She awarded me with

“The Versatile Blogger Award.”

I feel very honored to receive this award and glow with pride today, especially since my blog is quite new. I'll do my best in the future to write blog entries worthy of those of the very talented bloggers who have been selected before me.

Here are the Versatile Blogger Award rules:
1. Thank the person who gave it to you and link back to them.
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to other, recently discovered blogs and let them know about it.

Ok - now I'll share seven things about me. And I bet that you'd like to know something interesting, not what I had for breakfast. Hmm ... let's dig around in forbidden memories and scandalous secrets ...

  1. The first thing I wrote was a quite awful fantasy comic book inspired by the movie "Willow".
  2. I have watched the BBC production of "Pride and Prejudice" about 43568 times (yes, the Colin Firth version) and felt every time that the only thing really missing was a passionate, mindblowing Mr.&Mrs.Darcy kissing scene at the end (please don't shoot me, dear Jane Austen purists ;-) ).
  3. Often I am forced to write my books while my Siamnese cat, Tinkerbell (well, my 6-year-old daughter named her - I would have preferred "Miss Marple") constantly tries to lie down directly on my right hand, demanding to be cuddled.
  4. Long ago, I won a local Merengue dance contest in the Carribean! But that was before I married a man who never dances. Not even on his own wedding - well, there were a few seconds of forced waltzing because my male relatives threatened to kill him if he wouldn't. ;-)
  5. Inside, I've always stayed about 15 years old so I still go "squeeee" while watching "The Vampire Diaries" or "True Blood". Oh, and I might like to listen to boy band music when I'm alone but of course, I'd never admit it.
  6. Besides my second life as a notorious romance writer, I work as a health professional specializing in homeopathic remedies and have two wonderful children who completely drive me crazy most of the time.
  7. When I have some spare time (wish this could be more often) and I'm online, I love to watch Youtube videos and read blogs or fan fiction. It's amazing how many talented, creative people are out there. The internet gives them a great platform to express themselves.

Here are some bloggers whose articles I particularly enjoy, and I'm awarding each of them the Versatile Blogger Award. Of course, there's no special order:
