At a time when I was beginning to wonder how many people were actually reading my blog, and whether it made any difference to anyone, I have received a pleasant surprise – nominations for the Versatile Blogger Award from two different sources.
1.) Thank the person(s) who nominated you. Thank you, K. Alice Compeau and Globe&Life. It was so kind of you to think of me and nominate me
2.) Include a link to their blog in your post.
3.) Share 7 facts about yourself.
1.) My name is Ann Aschauer. 2.) I started writing “books” in the first grade and loved to write all through my childhood in St. Louis, MO. In college I majored in theater -directing and playwriting. 3.) I have three grown children and five grandchildren. 4.) I have taught kids of all ages (kindergarten through high school) French, music, English, speech, and drama; at public, private, Christian, charter, and home school. My favorite thing to teach is middle school drama (pardon the redundancy). 5.) I dream a lot. My first novel, Counselor, started as a dream, which turned into a journal entry, which turned into a short story, which became a novel, which became a trilogy of fiction for teens and young adults. 6.) I sing and play piano, guitar, and harp (not simultaneously). Among other venues, I have sung to the troops. (Long story) 7.) Most importantly: I am loved by God, saved by Jesus Christ, and filled with the Holy Spirit, the Source of any and every good thing in my life.
4.) Nominate 15 bloggers of your choice to keep spreading the love.
