Welcome Authors! It’s wonderful to have you back.
The Question: What hobby do you enjoy when not writing?
Ellen Spain – I enjoy travel to exciting (not dangerous) places and taking photographs of these travel scenes. Graphic art is another hobby and provides me the tools to make one of my photos into an interesting piece of art. If it turns out to be a special image, I'll frame it, sign it, and give it away as a gift. In the "Secrets in the Fog" series, one of the main characters will pursue one of my hobbies.
Joylene Butler – Sadly, I love computer games; hence I can be distracted far too easily. I also love baking, gardening, and especially -- home renovations.
Joy Brooks – Reading and playing with my seven cats. I also love to watch football. I'm a huge fan.
Bobbi Carducci - I start and end every day reading. I read newspapers, novels, nonfiction, online stuff, you name it. I also enjoy playing with my grandchildren and soaking in my hot tub. I teach writing workshops and lead an educational foundation. One of the things I love most is visiting schools for career day and talking to kids about all the different ways a person can make money as a writer.
