  1. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black purr machine maine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    An easy death or a rival from the grave. I’m feeling morose.

  2. Frieda P. Fontaine, Nutrition and Dietetics Technician Registered (NDTR) – Los Angeles – Want to learn about nutrition? Then you've come to the right place. I write about the cold hard facts of nutrition mixed in with my two cents worth. I'm credentialed by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) as a Nutrition and Dietetic Technician, Registered (NDTR). My experience is varied having worked as a Dietary Director for Skilled Nursing Facilities and privately as a Nutrition Counselor. I love engaging with my followers, so if you have something to share, I want to know.

    They all look interesting.

  3. rubiescorner – Chattanooga, Tennessee – I am an artist, and a retired classroom, and Reading teacher. My son introduced me to Word Press, and helped me start a blog. I called it Rubies Corner's Blog. At first I had few clues about writing, but as I wrote to my audience, I began to share daily. I thoroughly loved my audience, and writing. I have majored in Rubies Corner's blog because it has grown over the years. I have a blog with more art on it. My interests are Art, drawing, and reading the Bible. . My audience has grown on rubiescorner because I write what comes to mind. I have 8 other blogs, and they are organized by title.

    I don’t have time to read these kinds of books. I am interested in research, biographies, and light reading with humor.

  4. cookingfromthepast – My interest in culinary history began in college when I undertook the translation of Das Kochbuch der Sabina Welserin into English. In graduate school I continued this research, completing my Master's thesis, Culinary Change in Sixteenth Century Augsburg: The Cookbooks of Sabina and Philippine Welser. During my career as an archivist I continued an amateur interest in food history, most recently delving deep into the history of cookies and biscuits, candy and confectionary.

    200 years and still in print. Frankenstein is the ultimate sf classic.

  5. Got to go with the first great science fiction and/or horror novel ever written. Interesting that there’s another book that spins off it. Also, Bear, Hurley and Harris.

  6. rktrixy – Alameda, CA – Architect, Newly-wed, Middle-aged Crafty woman. Love Science Fiction, Love quilting, Love fabric, love love love surface pattern. Very very fond of food.

    The book “An Easy Death” is already on my list. I love the title “A Sorrow Fierce and Falling”. Holy cow, how does a writer live up to that? I am intrigued by “What if this were Enough?” as I ask myself that question on a very regular basis, only to be distracted by shiny things.

  7. I love Elizabeth Bear and also Julie Czerneda. They are both gifted with great imaginations and write clearly with characters you could sit down and talk with..
