Dearest Odyssians,


I have been awarded a wonderful blog award, despite the verbal carnage i continually thrust upon you week after week.  It’s been a long while since I’ve gotten one, so I’m ticked pink. Pink like the Liebster medallion of the award i got.

Thank you Very much SAMTIERNAN for nominating me.

And here goes everything:

** Keeping answers vague as not to trigger any security access questions later. though They know everything about me already, don’t they?


1.Where are you from?

The Midwest of the USA

2. Favorite movie?

Blade Runner (so glad to hear that they are doing a remake with Ridley Scott and Harrison Ford. I’m hoping they bring in Rutger, Daryl, and Sean Young to reprise their roles as well. and i’m hoping Harrison stops flying planes/helicopters/kites and stays on the ground. Also, no remake would be complete without a soundtrack by musical master… Vangelis.

3. Favourite colour?

Green. Decided this a long time ago, and still hold it dear. Though, i like blue and esp. any combo of blue-green = earth’s finest calling card.

4. Do you remember the first piece of make up you got?

No. I’m not big into makeup. But I will say concealer, mascara, eyeliner, lip balm and blush are essentials. I guess I just admitted I’m into make up. Well, that was refreshingly passive aggressive.

5. What did you do today?

-Worked on my debut novel. wrote in some corrections. also did research for a major character’s secret plot line. I won’t reveal more as it’s part of a big reveal twist at the end that  I’m knee deep in crafting. the book’s  a psychological thriller (with bad punctuation) that’s got my mind twisted in loops writing it. if it’s got me like this and i’m in charge it might be just the thing to keep readers on their toes. So I’m embracing the frenzy that runs through my mind as I tie up the plots many many loose ends/ mysteries.

-ate thai for lunch. thai iced tea is my go to. wow. what a drink. nectar of the gods, plus caffeine. anything with condensed milk has me all in, jolt or not. Try one today!

6. Your favourite lollie?

What’s a lollie? :)

7. What are you most excited for?

Debut book being done. Blade Runner sequel being released. The future.

8. Do you like chocolate?


9. Favorite song?

what’s on now. Wave by Beck.

10. How do you pass the time when you’re bored?

There’s no reason to be bored!! so much to do. so little time.

11. Are you friends with the same people you were 5 years ago?

yep. yep. yeppers.

So here are the rules of the Liebster Award.


Nature landscapes: blue beauty

Dearest Odyssians,


HI everyone.
Things are rocking and rolling for o and om in bookville,  the place where novels get written. We are knee deep in a very exciting ending rewrite. And then we will continue to do our best to effectively layer in an underlying plot line concerning hidden treasure – towards the front of the book. How exciting!!! It won’t be easy. But we are up for the challenge. P. S. It has to get done anyway…

Hope all is well with you my creative talented dedicated blogging friends. It’s never easy to get creative work done,  and that includes blogging. I’m proud of all of you for sticking to your missions!!
