Virtual Blog Hop

Blog hops are doing the rounds at the moment and a couple of weeks ago, Imelda very kindly invited me to take part in a Virtual Blog Hop.

Having recently taken part in a couple of blog hops, you’ll be pleased to know that I won’t be boring you with yet more questions/answers about my writing process,

Instead, I’m taking this opportunity to showcase two lovely blogging/writing friends of mine:

Imelda, who kindly featured my bio in her blog hop post, and Jennifer, as a featured onward blog-hopper!

I would also like to thank Imelda, not only for her invitation to the blog hop but also for this gorgeous photograph of ‘Bluets on Rock’ which she gave me as a gift for taking part. What a beautiful gesture!

I am keen to show-off Imelda’s photograph because this is a mere taste of what you will find on her blog.  She is far too humble, as I notice she doesn’t mention her photography once in her bio.

So I’m doing it for her!   I love going over to Imelda’s blog to read/view her exquisitely crafted poetry and photography which never fails to impress her many readers.  She is also a lovely lady with a very kind and caring heart.

Some of you may already know her but if you don’t, I hope you will pay her a visit.  I know she would love to meet you.




Imelda is wife to a wonderful man and mother to four young boys. She has always loved poetry since she met Thomas Gray in high school.

Seeking solace from the chaos of raising four children, she started to write poetry. She has been writing poems on a more or less daily basis for a little over two years now.In time she hopes to publish her own poetry collection.

Meanwhile, she regularly posts her pieces in her blog, MY WALL (short for My Word Wall, which was inspired by the high frequency word wall that she put up for her sons’ lessons).


Now I would like you meet Jennifer.  Again, some of you may already know her but if you don’t and you want to meet a lovely young woman who is already a published author and inventor of an entire language (yes, I’m serious), then please do visit her and read more of her work.

It is amazing that I’ve met so many wonderful bloggers here on WordPress from all over the world, as well as some closer to home.  Jennifer is one of those (although I confess to being just a little bit envious of her exact location, as you will see) as we live in the same county!

I really enjoy our ‘chats’ about our love of walking through the woodlands of the English countryside and our recently discovered mutual enjoyment of picnics we took as children with our dads.

Jennifer has a heart of gold and brings light to every path she crosses.

Jennifer K Marsh

Jennifer is originally from Salisbury, Wiltshire, in the south-west of England, but now resides in West Somerset. She lives on the outskirts of Exmoor National Park, which is a great source of inspiration for her.

She is the author of the ILIMOSKUS story, which is an upcoming environmental fantasy trilogy. ‘Times of Old’ is the first book in the Ilimoskus trilogy, and she is currently working on the second instalment.

The natural world is incredibly important to Jennifer, which is undoubtedly part of the inspiration for the Ilimoskus race, society, and storyline. She aims to spend a lot of her time going for walks away from the busy world to take in the beauty and quiet of nature. She very much believes everyone and everything deserves compassion and respect, for it makes the world a better place, and harmony between all is so important

That’s me hopping away until tomorrow.  Happy Monday!
