My favorite part of this award is the recognition, of course, and having the opportunity to nominate and encourage other writers.
Favorite City: Fecamp, France, where the air is crisp and clean, the food is luscious, and the people are wonderfully friendly.

This was a fun diversion. thank you, Ms. Bergquist, for gently shaking my tree.
