A special "Thank You" post to Wolfie over at Writer Person for this sweet award. I was reading my comments and saw that I'd been tagged...
Very cool, right? One of the things you have to do when you get this award is to write 3 nice things about myself...so here goes:
I love to bake for other people. Seeing them enjoy something I've made just for them just warms my heart.
I'm a good listener. If you need a shoulder to cry on, a sympathetic ear, or a hug...I'm your gal.
I'm tenacious...not always a good thing, but for writing it is, otherwise known as...stick-to-it-ness.
Now for the best part of receiving this award...I get to give it other people! As part of the A-Z Blogging Challenge last month, I was introduced to a number of really great blogs. I want to give this award to the few that really stuck out in my mind...
Of course there are many more great blogs out there that took part in the challenge. Tomorrow is the May 3rd Mega Post hosted by the A-Z Blogging Challenge mastermind, Arlee Bird over at his blog, Tossing It Out.
Can't wait to see you guys through your updates and blogfest entries! Until next time...Go Write!
Raquel writes across several genres including YA Steampunk and Gothic Mystery. Always looking for another adventure in which to partake she is never seen without her notebook.
As a teen she couldn't get enough Bradbury, Asimov, Poe, or Matheson. They informed her love of science fiction, mystery, and thrillers. One of her favorite stories is Something Wicked This Way Comes. It changed the way she looked at scenery and the world around her.
After finishing school, marrying, and starting a family, Raquel realized she'd fallen away from her love of the written word. She began in earnest in 2000 to hone her craft and connect with other authors and book lovers.
She connected with an agent and after signing with him, sold two series. One, a suspense series that also sold into foreign translation, and the other a dark Gothic mystery. Currently working on YA Speculative Fiction she endeavors to bring the same edgy characters and thrilling pace to the project.
