Here's how the award works:
- The nominated blogger must post 11 facts about themselves;

- I can smell donuts from a block away.
Here are the answers to the 11 questions asked by Kerry Letheby, author of Mine To Avenge:
- Who knows you best in life? In terms of my personality and character, it would have to be my husband.
- If you could spend your life doing anything you like, what would it be? Reading and studying.
- What is your earliest memory? Playing in the backyard.
- What lifts you up when you are feeling down? A massage, loud music, ordering take away, or someone who makes me laugh.
- What are you most thankful for in life? The health of my family.
- If you were given $1000, what would you spend it on? Boring, but I'd probably put it in the bank.
- Are you a hot weather person or a cold weather person? I think I'm a cold weather person. Even though I'm always cold (especially my feet), you can always get warmer, and it can be quite cosy snuggling up with a blanket in winter. I hate being covered in sweat and rushing inside for the relief of an airconditioner.
- Name one thing on your bucket list. To be invited to an awards night within the publishing industry.
- What is your favourite movie? The Matrix
- What is your favourite 'get away from it all place'? My bed!
- What piece of advice do you hand out most often? Hang in there.
