The Versatile Blogger Award!

NB: Some of my earliest blogs no longer have their accompanying images but enjoy the copy!

I was very kindly nominated by Sequins and Cherry Blossom for a Versatile Blogger award! I don’t think I’ve ever been nominated for anything before, so thank you very much!

The rules say that, in order to qualify, I have to:

  • Give 7 facts about myself
  • Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award

So, here we go…

1) I am working on a fantasy trilogy called the ‘Eristalis’ trilogy and hope to eventually publish all three books one day.

2) I have been to Japan twice before and hope to be able to go again next year… and blog about it, naturally.

3) I had surgery for a spinal condition called scoliosis when I was 15. I still have the scar to prove it, as well as some very strange-sounding hiccups as a result of the doctors deflating a lung (the lung and spine are doing wonderfully now).

4) I studied History at university and my dissertation was on Thomas Jefferson and the Declaration of Independence.

5) I rarely drink but when I do it’s nearly always colourful cocktails.

6) I have a tabby cat called Kiki, who I miss like mad when I’m away (as well as my parents!)

7) My job involves lobbying, and I love it!

And now, for my fifteen nominees…
