30 days of me – Get to know the author – Eight

Ellie Keysget to know me

Today is Day Seven of my daily posts of something new about me or “Get to know the author”. I was advised of a list that I will possibly deviate from or follow to the letter. I’m a rebel and follow my own course.

Yesterday’s post was about the my life in seven years. I revealed where I want my author career to be in seven years. If you missed it, then feel free to go back and check it out.

Question:

The word or phrase you live by?

I have two phrases that I live by.

1) Smile from within, let your soul shine through. 2) Enjoy life to the fullest through a good book.

These are two of the phrases I say all the time.  I had a stamp made for the second one.  It is what I stamp in my signed books.  Typing this up reminds me that I need to get a new stamp made.

The first came to me one day as I was writing a poem that depicted how a mother saw her child.  I have been using it in some fashion every since that day several years ago.  The second came to me a couple years ago as I was coming up with something to use for one of my websites.  I thought it was perfect for all those that share a love for a good book like I do.  I know there are many that will agree that reading takes you to a new place.  There’s so much that can be learned when taking in a good story.  I love the process of reading stories from the creative minds that took the time to put the words on the page.  Creating the worlds that I get to create is just an added bonus.

Day Seven complete!
