Congratulations to Kyndra for winning Reluctant Smuggler from Jill Elizabeth Nelson.

This week I am featuring Julie Lessman with her book A Passion Most Pure. People are raving about this book. Julie is having a drawing for it. Please email me if you want to be entered in the drawing for A Passion Most Pure. My email address is margaretdaley.com@gmail.com. The drawing will close next Sunday evening.

Julie Lessman is a debut author who has already garnered writing acclaim, including ten Romance Writers of America awards. She is a commercial writer for Maritz Travel, a published poet and a Golden Heart Finalist. Julie has a heart to write “Mainstream Inspirational,” reaching the 21st-century woman with compelling love stories laced with God’s precepts. She resides in Missouri with her husband and their golden retriever, and has two grown children and a daughter-in-law. Her first book, A Passion Most Pure, will be in stores January 2008.

I was tagged by Pamela. I am supposed to list eight things you might not know about me. This won’t be easy because I am an open book. Hey, that is number one. Okay, I have to come up with 2-8. Let’s see.

2. I’m loving retirement. Of course, I’ve only been retired from teaching for a few weeks. Give me a few months. I might change my mind.
3. Because I am a workaholic–I just need to handle my stress better.
4. I am also a bookaholic. I love books. I have so many that I finally give 500 away last summer to Goodwill because I didn’t have any room for more. That room is quickly filling up.
5. I so enjoyed watching National Treasure: Book of Secrets a few weeks ago. I love adventures and puzzles. The movie had both.
6. I have started exercising again–reluctantly because I hate to exercise.
7. My favorite drink is Diet Dr. Pepper, but I limit myself to only one a day.
8. Although, you probably already know this–I adore my three granddaughters. They are so cute!
So what are 8 things we don’t know about you? Anyone game to list them here or on their blog?
Take care,


  1. Margaret, I’m so looking forward to Julie’s book. It’s ordered and should be arriving any day now.

    As for your 8 things… I was just reminded that you retired! Congratulations!! Also, Diet Dr. Pepper is my favorite, too. 🙂


  2. I’ve tried to enter for the book but my mail keeps coming back to me saying it can’t be delivered? I sent it to: margaretdaley.com@gmail.com

  3. Catslady, the email address is margaretdaley@gmail.com. Try again. I have you down, but no way to contact you so I will need your email address.


  4. Thanks so much, I sent another email.
