5. Display Belinda’s lovely “Butterfly Light Award” badge on your blog.

How I’m A Positive Influence

I try to be a positive influence to everyone around me by spreading positive thoughts and actions through my blog and website.  Being an indie author I work hard to support other indie authors and newbie authors by interviewing them and reviewing their books and promoting them on my blog.  I give away many of my children’s books to schools, libraries and other people online through giveaways such as on Goodreads.  By doing this I hope to spread my words through rhyming verse that teach life lessons and promote and reinforce good behavior in children of all ages.


I’m awarding this “The Butterfly Light Award” to :

Deanie Humphrys-Dunne

Paul G. Day

Mike Fedison

Sarah Mazor

    I think you are possibly a new hero for me – you are doing something I strive toward! ONE day I will write that childrens book to do such things as you are – and then I will write a novel! (oh boy!) in the mean time – I will keep blogging and meeting lovely people and making pretty pictures 😀
    Thanks for a lovely post!

      I finally realized my dream to be an author at the ripe old age of 65. Sometimes I regret not having done it sooner but I am happy to be where I am right now. My words will live on for children to read and enjoy long after I leave this earth.
