Ah, the first full week of blogging here at The Lark Journals is coming to a close. I hope we have many, many more weeks of sharing...with each other and with you, our readers. I've had fun peeking in each day to see what Debbie, Kathleen and Margaret had to say. I know I'll learn so much about and from them by sharing this experience.
Early last week I chose a topic for today's blog. I mulled it over, smiled, decided it was certainly the perfect topic for my first Lark post. Absolutely the best choice. Yep, it was the one. No doubt. The first thing I had to share with all of you. Uh huh.
By this past Wednesday I'd begun to wonder if I'd made the right decision. After all, there will be many weeks when I can talk about that, but only one first week post. Right? I knew you'd agree. So I took out my mental pencil and scratched this morning's scene. Didn't erase it, merely filed it for future use. Then I decided on this morning's topic. And what, you ask, would that be?
Me. You see, this is my chance to introduce myself to you.
I won't bore you with the dull stuff. Let's just say I was born, I grew up and here I am. I've been married to the same wonderful man for years. I can honestly say he is the inspiration for every hero I write, the happily ever after to each tale I tell. Without him I'd be lost. With him I can't stop smiling. :) We live in a rural part of New York, surrounded by hills and trees. Among other things, I like to garden, paint, sew and take photographs. In the summer we hike, row and watch the stars above our hills. During the long, snowy winter months we snowshoe, cross-country ski and watch those same stars twinkle above us. And in between, I write.
Some of my earliest memories involve reading and writing. It's no surprise that I'd write mystery and romance. I was a curious kid. I liked puzzles, solving riddles and my idol was Harriet the Spy. So mystery writing? No shock, that one. And romance...well, who doesn't adore love? I know I do. I love everything about love! Writing about it is a pleasure, and a passion.
So there you have it, a little about me. Thanks for stopping by and visiting with us!
Pardon? Oh, the topic that I've filed for future sharing? What was it, you ask?
Hmm...I suppose you'll have to stop by again if you want the answer to that one! A lady's got to have some secrets, doesn't she?!
