Meet Sheila Blanchette!
Sheila and I have only recently become bloggy friends. With a name that instantly made me think of heroines from ‘Gone With the Wind,’ Sheila is an American writer, author and blogger and I absolutely love her writing style. Her ‘About’ page is one of the best that I have ever read:
I have an edge. Sarcasm and irony are two of my favorite things.
I am a wide eyed optimist. I love a happy ending.
This is the dichotomy that is me. Lou Reed meets Jack Johnson.
Those three lines are from a piece I wrote for the Huffington Post where I am a guest contributor.
I also like music. All kinds of music. When I wrote that second line about my favorite things, my mind immediately jumped to The Sound of Music. Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
I am currently working on my third novel which includes a lot of rock ‘n roll. While you wait in eager anticipation for more on that subject, you can read my published novels. The Reverse Commute and Take Me Home. Both are available on Amazon and if you just move over to the long hallway to your right you can click on their covers and buy the books. I would love for you to buy the books.
Oh, I forgot to tell you, I am working on shameless promotion. It’s a requirement in my job description. Self published indie author. One Woman Show. We all do it. It’s the way books are sold now. Blogging, tweeting, Facebooking, Pinning and Instagramming. I am everywhere and if you travel down the hallway to the right, you will find a door leading to each and every one of those places where you can find me. I am everywhere.
I spent a year walking and blogging about it. It’s my year long story of exploring my new home in South Florida, a strange land indeed. It’s also a story of my becoming a writer and the inspiration I found all around me. What I Need is All Around Me. That ‘s Dave Matthews, someone I shared a brief, intimate moment with.
My perfect day would be living in Diane Keaton’s house in the movie Something’s Gotta Give. You know, the one with Jack Nicholson? Diane Keaton’s character is a successful playwright and lives in a beautiful home on the beach in the Hamptons. I want to be that woman. Writing at my desk early in the morning as the sun rises over the ocean, my coffee mug on my beautiful desk in my beautiful home designed in the style of a Nancy Meyers movie.
Sheila’s blog theme is very similar to Suzie81 Speaks – she writes about her interests, her life experiences, stories, interviews, books and her thoughts and ideas, and every post that I have read so far is beautifully expressed, insightful, full of beautiful photographs and makes me want to read more!
For those of you that are interested in any of these things (which I know thousands of you are), then I would highly recommend that you show Sheila some serious blog love!
