Advent Calendar – Day 6

In the spirit of Christmas and the Advent Calendar that has been revamped and re-purposed in myriad ways, I have decided to do one of another sort.  Instead of taking one chocolate per day (or wine or whatever goodie is in vogue) or adding one item into a box to donate for a good cause (a very good thing, indeed) I have chosen to send a little love to my favourite blogs.

Good morning my readers!  Time for a new treat!

Day 6:  Castelsarrazin

Sandra Crook is a wonderful writer whom I “met” through Friday Fictioneers.  Her ability to grab you and suck you in, in a mere 100 words is amazing.  She is a master (mistress?) of the short story and I’m always happy to see her face in the FF “Hollywood Squares” because, even when she tries to tell us her story is not her best, it is always beyond good.  She has written quite a few longer stories that have won her more than a few awards ~ most first place winners, I might add – with good reason.  Her latest may have gotten her a third place, but honestly, I thought it deserved first!  I am biased.  You, read it, you’ll see it is fabulous!

Sandra has shared her sailing adventures on “Désormais”, though that chapter of her life is over, as well as her love of photography of nature, mostly flowers.  She has a wonderful sense of humour, a dry wit, as well as a dark side when needed for her stories.  Don’t be fooled by that sweet face, she’s not all flowrs and sweetness!
