The Liebster Award

on January 30, 2014

Thank you to My Librarians for nominating me for this award.

Here’s a link to their site:


1. Why did you start your blog?
I was finishing my first novel and someone advised me to begin blogging so that people would know who I was.

2. Who is your favorite book character?
That’s tough, there are characters I love in every book I read. But I have reread the Hobbit recently and I did play Bilbo at a murder mystery party, so I’ll go with Bilbo Baggins.

3. What is one of your favorite quotes? “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”

4. If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?
The child I sponsor in Haiti

5. What would you name the autobiography of your life?
“A Texas Girl”

6. What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
I love playing board games or making puzzles inside. But outside, I love swimming, or star gazing.

7. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I’ve always wanted to learn how to do the spins and jumps in ice skating.

8. 15 hours of a train journey through a scenic route or a 1 hour plane journey?
Depends on where I’m going and who I’m with, but I’d probably lean towards the long scenic route.

9. If you were to get an opportunity to live anywhere in the world, which place would you choose?
I love where I live now, and though I’d love to visit other places and maybe even live there for a limited time, Texas will always be home to me.

10. Would you ever go skydiving/bungee jumping/deep sea diving/paragliding?
I think all of these activities would be fun, though the deep sea diving might be a bit much for me, and it would be hard for me to go through with the bungee jumping.
