7 Random Facts About Mahrie G. Reid

A big thanks to my long time writing friend, Lorraine Paton who tagged me with a Very Inspiring Blogger Award. She's a fluid writer of romance, a dynamite workshop presenter and a patient teacher of things technical. Check out her books on her web site or find them at Devon's Second Chance and Annie's Christmas Plan .

Her challenge came awhile ago and I'm slow getting to it because I've been putting final touches on my second book. It's now off to be published (thanks to wonderful training from Lorraine and others in my group) and here I am.

By accepting, I am required to: 
  • Link back to the person who nominated me for the award.
  • Display the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.
  • Reveal 7 things about myself.
  • Nominate others to receive the award and continue the fun!

7 Random Facts about me

  1. I am a PK - raised in Presbyterian Manses in small eastern towns. 
  2. I started speaking in public when I was 12 years old.
  3. My food passion is Rice Crispie Squares - cannot leave them alone.
  4. My favorite color is Rust... (but not on my car).
  5. I am a mother of twins (MOT) and a grandmother of twins (GOT).
  6. I lived in 12 different towns/cities (a couple of them twice at different times.)
  7. I spent ten years as a marriage commissioner in Alberta and performed weddings in odd places.

And I nominate the following writers to join in the fun (if they choose to participate)

What do we not know about you?


  1. Mmmm... rice crispie squares... now I want some too! LOL. :) I'm glad you decided to play! :)

    And thank you for the lovely things you said about me. *blushing*

    I'm excited for your book release this week! Yay! Congrats!

    1. Those dastardly rice crispie squares... I'm off to the grocery store - will I be able to by-pass the marshmallows needed for the squares?

      Look for my book launch tomorrow, June 11th. It is my birthday present to myself.

  2. Did you enjoy travelling around and living in different places?

    1. I moved the first time when I was two years old. Moving was just the way it was! I found new places exciting. When I was fourteen, I saw it as an opportunity to "reinvent" myself. When I was thirty-four it expanded my world because I moved from the east all the way to Calgary. Yes, I usually enjoyed moving. Now, I'm not so sure. I must be slowing down.
