This is a great exercise in fun and mutual back-scratching. Of course, as with any of these blog awards, there are rules. The “rules” that come along with this award designation are (1) I must divulge seven things about myself, and then (2) pay the Stylish Blogger Award forward to fifteen other blogs.
So here are seven things about me…
1.) I’m so secretive about the location of the Rawles Ranch that many of my friends don’t know where it is. Nor my literary agent. Nor my book editors. Nor the movie and television producers. They simply don’t have a “need to know” unless they come to visit. (And if you are wondering, no, I don’t make them wear blindfolds.)
2.) I have a mania for collecting and restoring 1930s to 1950s vintage All-American Five vacuum tube AM-Shortwave radios that can operate on both AC and DC.
3.) I no longer rent table space at gun shows. But I still prowl the aisles at shows as far away as the SAR show in southern Arizona.
4.) Our family has a morning Bible study six days a week. I have found that it is an edifying way to both educate my children Biblically, add to my own knowledge, solidify our relationships, and prepare ourselves for turbulent coming events.
6.) Many of the plot details and the dialogue in my novels come to me in dreams. When get to a point where I’m stuck in writing, I just suggest to myself that I dream it, that night.
7.) I cannot ice skate or roller skate. (Thankfully, that is rarely required as a survival skill.)
