Ilima Todd of Ilima Writes: I met this talented author at a writer's conference where we had a chance to critique each others work. I look forward to seeing her become a published author. If she ever writes a book for boys, I hope I'm the first to review it.
The second is C.K. Volnek, author of Ghost Dog of Roanoke Island and A Horse Called Trouble. I have had a chance to work with this lovely author for book reviews. I am always amazed at how grateful and gracious the authors are to me for taking the time to review their books. Please visit her website. http://www.ckvolnek.com.

So...here is my list of five bloggers to whom I present the Liebster Award:
Kalina Clegg at Run Like a Girl Besides being my daughter, Kalina inspires me everyday at how hard she works in every aspect of her life. Her blog inspires me to keep running even when I don't want to. Because she never quits, she inspires me to keep trying to get my book published even when I feel like quitting.
Chris Singer of Book Dads - Though I don't personally know Chris, I admire him deeply for reminding us how important father's are in their children's life. Dedicated to being a good example of reading, he has my deepest gratitude. Not to mention, he has been a huge supporter of my blog.
Margot Finke of Whine Without the Hangover - Margot is an children's book author I met online through my association with the Mom's Blogger Club and I admire her deeply for taking on tough issues for children. I can't wait to review some of her titles.
Ella Johnson of Memorable Children's Books and Gifts - Also a fellow blogger from the Mom's Blogger Club who is dedicated to children's literature.
Jessie Oberg of Jessie Oberg Photography - Jessie is a beautiful photographer and has a beautiful blog. I wish I could make mine look that beautiful, but hey, I'm a writer, not a photographer.
