I have been nominated for the Sunshine Award by Kathryn Jenkins. I am always pleased when one of my peers takes an interest in my writing. Kathryn Jenkins is a Fantasy writer.

*Then of course there are questions to be answered. This is for you all to get to know a little more about me, and I look forward to seeing your responses as well.
Favorite color? I have several. As an artist, colors represent more than just a shade. Red (any shade) conjures up feelings of passion and love, teal blue is so relaxing, golden yellow reminds me of the fiery sun as it begins to drop toward the horizon, and green (many shades) is reminiscent of nature.
Favourite animal? I love all animals. My heart does go out to dogs, tigers, polar bears and dolphins though.
Favourite number? I have many favorite numbers. I love the number 5 because it reminds me of Sunday mornings watching cartoons with my brother when we were kids. I’m fond of the number 25 because I was married on the 25th of January and the number 3 because my husband was born June 3rd. The numbers 29, 8, 16, 2, 11, 7 mean a lot to me because they are the days my nieces and nephews were born. 83 is a precious number to me because it represents the number of years my incredible grandmother, Maria, graced this planet with her presence, although I wish it had been 100. I could go on and on, but I’ll stop here because I’m becoming an emotional wreck right now.
Favorite non-alcoholic drink? I love lemonade with lots of crushed ice in the summer, and hot cocoa on a chilly night.
Favorite alcoholic drink? I only drink now and then. When I’m in the mood (to drink) I like cran-rasberry juice and vodka, or raspberry vodka and sierra Mist, or diet sprite (when I’m dieting, which is 80% of the time). On a frosty night I may opt for some hot cocoa, baptized with a little brandy, or brandy with Kaluah and cream. I also like an occasional frozen Margarita (as long as it’s top shelf Tequila!) I don’t usually drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis XX. No, seriously I do, it’s a great beer! It tastes even better accompanied by hot chicken wings or a slice of pizza while watching a good basketball game, or UFC fight. ;D
Facebook or Twitter? My Facebook Fan Page has been a godsend, and my twitter-mates do a great job of re-twitting my important posts. I can’t do without either.
My passions? My first passion is writing. I also love reading, drawing, and photography. I love traveling, meeting new people, trying new things. I have an adventurer’s spirit. I adore my family, and spending quality time with them is also very important.
Giving or receiving gifts? Both. I love seeing the look on someone’s face when they’ve received something they truly love and are excited about. I would be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy receiving gifts as well. It makes me feel thought of, and special. Sorry, I’m only human.
Favorite city? Wow! This is a tough one. I grew up in New York City. I got married in Paris, France. Seville and Malaga, Spain are beautiful, and the people are so friendly. Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Florida are great! I’ve had a great time, and have many fond memories of all the cities I’ve been to. I can’t choose.
Favorite TV shows? Spartacus, The Tudors, Da Vinci’s Demons, The Voice, Modern Family and Face Off.
