I have been so fortunate to be part of the wonderful blogging community. I follow a lot of blogs and seldom find the time to comment because I tend to move at lightening speed. Today, I’m going to introduce you to some of my favorites.

Take some time and get to know these wonderful, caring, and amazing writers.

Teri Polen at http://teripolen.com

Some of Teri’s favorite things in life are books (no romance), music (preferably alt/rock and absolutely no country), movies (rarely chick flicks), red wine (no merlot), and dark chocolate (please don’t add any fruit to what is already perfection).

She was injured in an accident April 2011 and had back surgery including placing a new disk and screws in her lower back.  She has not been able to work since as  a Paramedic in the ER nor will she most likely ever be able to work in that field again. She was able to turn a hobby and love into an Awsum Career as an Editor with The Writer’s Coffee Shop and Leader of Team Awsum.

Marie Ann Bailey at http://1writeway.com

Marie Ann, “finally started to wake up to the fact that those things–career, working in an office, going to meetings, conferences–means little to me.  I’d rather be writing (ideally, in my jammies with a pot of hot tea for fuel).”

Sarah M. Craddit at http://sarahcradit.wordpress.com

Sarah is a writer. More specifically, she is the author of the House of Crimson and Clover series.

Like most writers, it’s hard for her to remember a time in her life when she didn’t write. She was always the kid with the vivid imagination and an answer for everything.

Sarah Solmonson began her writing career crafting books in crayon and fondly considers “My Daddy’s Airplane” (1991) to be her first draft of her debut memoir, Taking Flight.

Charles Yallowitz at http://legendsofwindemere.com/

Charles is the author of the Legend of Windemere series. He says, “You see, my reason for writing these stories  is because I like seeing the expression of interest and enjoyment on the face of a person reading my story.  I love hearing that there was a character that they connected with or a scene that made them laugh or cry.”

I’ll introduce more in the coming days. Hope you take the time to check these people out and say hello. You’ll be glad you did.
