I remember fifteen years ago, before her first novel was published. We’d gone as a group for dinner at Earls; individually we did a round table discussion on where we’d be in ten years. Always the jester, during my turn I joked about being divorced, even though I wasn’t serious about it at that moment! We all took turns; Shelley reflectively commented that she’d have several books published. Guess what? She does, and I'm divorced! I should have had a better ten year plan! I do now though, I’ve learned my lesson!Barb and Shelley 1995 in Parksville, during a writers retreat. It was a life altering trip for me. I decided that weekend I wanted a divorce, it took ten months before things were put into play!
Imagine my surprise to see that Shelley is now a fellow blogger, with one new book coming out in spring of 2008, and another to follow, called “Sister wife” in the Spring of 2009! I have read two of Shelley’s six books, hearing rumblings of controversy surrounding one of the books I haven’t read. If you have young teens looking for a meaty novel to read, I can assure you Shelley touches on teen issues in a very authentic way. Being a mother of girls, teacher turned writer, she knows kids. With Shelleys high ethics I have no doubt her novels are scripted with the utmost finesse, sprinkled with important lessons. Even though Shelley may not get caught up in the blogger award hoopla, I just have to acknowledge her with the Rockin Girl Blogger award! Just because she is a spectacular person who is making a difference in the lives of teens!
Janet already has one, but I am giving her another because she has started a new blog encouraging creative bloggers to make items for people less fortunate within their locale, in the name of a special blogger friend!
Amanda Hone because she is one of my favorite artists, my color soul mate and a wonderful inspiration! I think she is a Rockin Blogger girl and I'm hoping to inspire her to blog more...I love her posts!
Tammy is no doubt an incredible Rockin Blogger girl with her sage, creative, prolific writing and resilience despite her disability! You can steal any Music off my blog, anytime Tammy, because you rock!! Besides the music I put up is to introduce others to the many diverse artists they may never have heard of!
