Margaret can't blog today so I thought it would be fun to blog about her. Yesterday I mentioned she was an athlete. She belongs to a hiking group that spends weekends walking in England's scenic Lake District. Once she sent me a postcard from Haworth which is "Jane Eyre" country and breathtakingly beautiful in a brooding way. Another time the postcard was of the Coniston Water and the beautiful valley that surrounds it.
I have a collection of post cards that I treasure so imagine how excited I was to find even more pictures of Margaret's hikes at http://www.romancejunkies.com/spotlightsmargaretblake.html
A few months back there was an author spotlight done of her at Romance Junkies and it included photos of Margaret in her leather boots and some of the places where she hikes. There's also a photo of the town where she lives and of her Cat, Eddie. And if you read the interview his name is explained. You'll also find out about some of her other hobbies.
William Wordsworth was another Lake District rambler. So I suspect that beautiful terrain inspires and I bet parts of Margaret's novels are composed on those long walks.
