Seven Random Facts about Lorraine Paton

On Friday, my wonderful writing friend Mae Clair tagged me in with a Very Inspiring Blogger award. Mae and I met through Six Sentence Sunday, and have been friends ever since! She's been busy writing and publishing wonderful paranormal romances, which you should really check out!

Thank you, Mae!

By accepting, I am required to: 
  • Link back to the person who nominated me for the award.
  • Display the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.
  • Reveal 7 things about myself.
  • Nominate others to receive the award and continue the fun! 
7 things about me: 
  1. Two of my favorite movies are A Room with a View and the Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth. 
  2. I really want to travel to New Orleans, Greece and Newfoundland--although perhaps not all during the same trip. 
  3. My favorite TV show to watch when I'm home alone? The Big Bang Theory.
  4. I drink beer with my critique group ... during critiques. (We all do.) Don't you wish you could join us? ;)
  5. On my daily commute, I get to enjoy a view of the Rocky Mountains. It is beautiful.
  6. I love having a big, open sky over my head. I don't enjoy living in rainy or cloudy places--I feel claustrophobic in places like that.
  7. I love planting flowers in my garden. When I come down the street and see them blooming, I smile. And what is better than that?
Peonies from my garden

And, I nominate the following bloggers to share in the fun (should they wish to participate): 

  • Mary M. Forbes, Western Contemporary and Historical Romance Writer who has a new release coming out soon!
  • Sarah Kades, Contemporary and Paranormal Romance Writer who has a new release coming out this summer!

So, now it is your turn, what is your favorite movie?

Thanks Lorraine for including me. It sounds like fun. My favorite movie is... answered in my questions maybe? I really like the last fact - flowers make you smile. It's so nice to have something there for you - even on bad days. Good luck on your writing.

Hi, Lorraine. Loved discovering all these fun facts about you. The peonies are gorgeous! I sorely lack when it comes to a green thumb, but I keep trying. As for my favorite movie...there are so many it's hard to choose! One I can watch over and over is Frequency with Jim Caviezel and Dennis Quaid. And if I want to laugh, My Cousin Vinny is always fun :)
