Introducing Spunky's Soldiers

With one week until the A to Z Challenge begins, I thought I would introduce my helpers, otherwise known as Spunky’s Soldiers.

Laura Marcella
Her blog is Wavy Lines and yes, she has a thing for zebras. Laura is an avid reader and a writer with publishing dreams. She’s young and still excited about the world. May you never lose that, Laura. She’s been an online friend for several years and I’m grateful she’s one of my soldiers.


Sia McKye
Sia’s blog features other authors and book reviews. In her own words: “SHARING THE LAUGHTER AND THE TEARS, THE GLITCHES AND THE TRIUMPHS, AUTHORS FACE IN THE PURSUIT OF THEIR AMBITION TO WRITE.” She is also a writer, and understands both sides of the equation. You’ll also get a little taste of the Highlands when you visit her blog!


Golden Eagle
Golden is the smartest teenager you will ever meet. Visit her blog and you will be amazed it is written by anyone under the age of 40. She loves the sciences and reading, and she’s willing to share her knowledge with the world. Golden Eagle is probably the most responsible soldier I have!


Clarissa Draper
Clarissa is a mystery writer and author of The Sholes Key. She’s also an avid reader and know a lot about the craft and other programs and details writers might need. Clarissa has been an online friend for longer than I can remember, and I know she’ll do a great job helping me with the A to Z.


Jo Wake
Jo blogs about travel and things that are happening in the world, including hers. She always offers a tasty recipe, too. She’s originally from the UK and currently living in Canada, but she spent time in N. Carolina, so we know a lot of the same places. Jo already blogs daily and brings consistency to the team.


Tyrean Martinson
Tyrean is the author of Champion in the Darkness, a Christian fantasy. She’s a Christian and home schools her kids. She loves fantasy, science fiction, and adventure. (Homeschooling kids sounds like an adventure to me.) She brings a joy to the blogging world and gets involved at every opportunity.


Gwen Gardner
Gwen it the author of Givin’ up the Ghost. In addition to maintaining her blog, she co-blogs at Partners in Paranormal and maintains a site for Indie authors, offering services such as editing. Her next book, A Guilty Ghost Surprised, comes out this June. I love her last name, as my favorite character in my own YA series boasts that name!

Please say hello to my wonderful team of ladies!

I wish you all the best of luck with the A-Z challenge. I'm sure I'll feel a bit left out as the month progresses but I also know I could never keep up. At least not this time around.
