About two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to receive The Versatile Blogger awardfrom a wonderful fellow blogger who constantly entertains me or provokes deep thought in my erratic. The writer in question is Marcella Purnama and her blog is Message in a Bottle. I would like to thank Marcella very much and apologise for taking so long to accept the award. I have been working on Will Blyton and The Stinking Shadow.
So what is the versatile blogger award? Basically it’s a blog award that is given by another blogger. The rules are: to thank your nominator, nominate other bloggers, and tell seven truths about yourself.
So first of all I would like to say to Marcella, that if it was allowed, I would be nominating her. I love your blog Marcella. Here are the other bloggers whom I nominate. It is not in any order and some might have been nominated before.

I really don’t like talking about myself much.
One of my ancestors was in the pillory three times, unjustly.
Venice is my favourite city with Barcelona coming second.
I dressed up in Victorian clothing with my son and a friend. We were driven around in a pony and trap for research purposes for my novel Mulgrave Castle.
I once had a job travelling Britain as a space girl called Zoe and was accompanied by an alien out of the Cadbury Smash advertisement.
If you can cook, you can be my best friend.
Finally, thank you to everyone who reads my blog, it means a lot.
