Thanks very much to Th3WonderlandKids over at the blog, A Compilation of the Adventures of One Young Zebra for nominating me for the Liebster Award. screen-shot-2014-11-10-at-8-20-33-pm

Per the instructions accompanying the nomination, I have answered 11 questions asked by my nominator, nominated 11 other lucky bloggers, and asked them my own 11 questions.

My answers:

1.) If you could have any kind of super power what would it be and why?

I want the ability that Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings has where he can slam down his magic staff and repel evil.  Love it.

2.) Favorite Disney Princess/Prince and why?

Tie between Belle cause she loves to read and Mulan cause the guy came to her at the end

3.) Top five books?

My Name is Asher Lev by Chiam Potok

The Southern Reach Trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer

A Widow for One Year by John Irving

Model Patient: My Life as an Incurable Wise-Ass by Karen Duffy (my little book is partly dedicated to her)

Lord of the Rings Trilogy


5.) Top five tv shows?


The Wire

Boardwalk Empire

West Wing

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

6.) What would you name your first daughter and son?

I always like Aislinn and Abraham but feel free to name your kids that because I will not be having any myself.

7.) What made you start blogging?

Blogging is an extension of a little Kindle book I wrote called, “Living Incurably Despite Chronic Illness.”  Someday I’d like to publish a 2nd edition, including some of my new thoughts that have developed while blogging.  It’s also been a great way to connect with people I’d never have met otherwise.

8.) If you could change your name what would you change it to?

Eva James

9.) What are your hobbies?

Reading, writing, crafting, mild traveling

10.) Do you speak any other languages?
