Here are the 7 Things About Me:

  • I am a retired teacher (grades 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8) and I enjoy visiting schools and libraries and reading to kids.
  • I live on a 37-acre farm in Central Maine with my amazing husband of 48 years.
  • Our kitty child MIDNIGHT adopted us in 2008. She was wild and living in our barn from June to December that year. My grandson helped me lure her into the house with a can of tuna fish. She’s our girl!
  • My computer is going crazy… I think I’ll have to save everything and start from ground zero. Prayers, please.
  • I love nature, people and literature and advocate for children at every opportunity.
  • I am very thankful for my family and for all of my wonderful friends in the blogosphere and beyond. You have all helped me in more ways than I could ever repay. THANK YOU!
  • Since retiring from teaching in 2005, I have self-published three books. You can find them at http://www.Amazon.com/author/betteastevens
  • I love writing and reading. I’m currently rereading To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. It’s even better the second time around. I’m also working on my first novel. The draft was completed in November and I’m making a New Year’s resolution to have it ready to publish in 2014.

Thank you again, Catherine. It is an honor to receive this award, and a delight to pass it on.
