Cecelia Dowdy’s bio:
Cecelia Dowdy has been an avid reader since she learned to string
letters together to form words. While pursuing a business degree in
college one of her professors tried to convince her to get an English
degree since he felt she was a great writer. Years later, after
receiving her BS in Finance, she took her former teacher’s advice, and
started pursuing her literary career.

She loves to read, write, and bake delicious desserts during her spare
time. Traveling is another favorite hobby, and she’s been to various
countries around the world, including Germany, France, England, Tahiti,
New Zealand, Mexico, Jamaica, Bahamas, Cayman Islands, and Santo
Domingo. She enjoys listening to old tunes with her husband on Saturday
nights. Currently she resides with her spouse and young son in
Maryland.

Updates in my life:
This is my favorite time of year when all the plants bloom after a long winter’s sleep. I’ve even been able to put the top down on my car and drive with the wind blowing through my hair. What a feeling of being free! Another thing I love to do is go for a walk—with my granddaughters. The other day we walked to the pond with me pushing the stroller. One of my granddaughters talked me into pushing the stroller around the big pond where there wasn’t a path, so they could feed the ducks and geese, which of course, were on that side of the pond. Now picture me struggling with a stroller over the grass on a hill that is at a sixty-degree angle. I think I wrenched my knee on that hike, but they had a great time and loved feeding the birds. What are some things you enjoy doing in the springtime?

As you all know I retired in December from teaching so I could write full-time. Well, things have changed a little bit. I will be finishing the school year out as a special education teacher in a kindergarten/first grade because a teacher went on maternity leave. I couldn’t say no even though I probably should have. Once a teacher always a teacher, I guess, although this will be only temporary.
Take care, Margaret

  4. I definately like to be outside in the spring time. I am not an outdoors person so I try to take advantage with my kids when I actually want to be out there. Yesterday morning there was 2 inches of snow on the ground so I got the girls dressed up and we went out to play. Not two hours later it was gone. I was so happy I got my lazy butt up and got them out there. It was FUN!

  5. Both books look wonderful! Please enter me in the drawings. Thanks.
