I remember interviewing an author on radio and was expecting this 6ft statuesque blonde 30 something who had modelled and thrown herself out of a plane and other daring dos….haha…bless her…just as well it was radio! great share Debby.. xx

    1. Lol, fun story Sal. This is why I thought Helen’s post was a worthy share. 🙂 xo

      1. Well spotted Debby… have a great weekend.. xxx

        1. Thanks Sal. Off to the art festival soon! 🙂 Happy weekend. <3 xo

  2. I’ve written author bios of various lengths:1000 words, 500 words. In my latest submission, a 100-word bio was required. No place for ego in such a spare sketch. 🙂

  3. Thanks so much for sharing, Debby 🙂 xx

  8. Debby, this came out a week ago, which makes me feel far behind. I like what a generous spirit you have radiating your kindnesses to include fellow bloggers. This post by Helen may help me “stay real.” 🙂 Thanks, dear. xoxo
