A is for ALL ABOUT ME



Hello everyone,

Happy April! Today is the beginning of a month long Blogging from A to Z Challenge. For the next 26 days, [no Sundays] you will be able to drop by and see what I'm up to. This is also a time that all my amazing readers can get to know new bloggers simply by clicking on the big sunflower icon on the right panel----BUT WAIT!! Read on down first and please say hi. I love to know you dropped by. 

If you are new to my blog, here's a huge cyber HUG and a big fat WELCOME! I hope you dropped in often.





ALL ABOUT ME:

In a brief nut shell, I'm a wife of over thirty years, a mom to two amazing young adults and a romantic suspense writer. I try daily to live my life in the most awesome way possible by keeping my eyes open to all the beauty this world has to give.

I have spent years as a stay-at-home mom and didn't begin writing until my youngest child started college. And to tell you the truth, that was another challenge. My sweet sisters [I have 3] challenged me that she wouldn't smoke that day if I started writing the novel I had secretly dreamed about for years. She even had the nerve to demand 10 pages by the end of the day. 

I can't tell you how much I wanted by dear sister to stop smoking. My mother died from COPD and it scared me to death that history was going repeat itself. 

I took that challenge! My sister has been smoke-free for five years and I have completed and released five full length novels I call my In the Shadow series. I'm now working on my next project--which I plan to share with you real soon. 

So what can you expect from me this month? 

I started this blog three years ago as my way of stepping out of my comfort zone and connecting to future readers. [yes, another challenge].  I have to say, I love being a blogger almost as much as I love writing. I plan on sharing a little about my writing process, maybe a couple views on life, my daily struggles --I'm a glass-half-full kind of person so those will be few and far between, and maybe a recipe or two because what is life without great food.

Since this is my introduction to new bloggers and readers, it's a little long. I know we are all busy so I'll be keeping my post short and sweet. Feel free to take a quick tour around my website. If you comment below and decide to follow me, I will return the favor. 


I'll leave you with a question: 

Has anyone ever given you a challenge that led you on the your path to living your dream? 

Have a great day and be nice to one another.

Hugs to all,

Nancy C. Weeks

Hi, Nancy! Glad to see you doing the A-Z Challenge too! What a great introduction and "how I started writing" story. As for your question, I think my husband challenges me to live my dream on a daily basis!
