About Me


This blog began because of my love of books - wanting to share what I was reading, my own writing process and the resulting ups and downs, and then later the recipes that were filling up the time I should have been editing. Over the years it has evolved to include whatever is on my mind at the moment, house renovations with my father, and anything animal related. 

I always love hearing from people that have read my books - Fish In The SeaKissing Frogs, I Want To Hold Your Hand, so please feel free to leave comments or send me an email! And if you know of a great gluten-free product I should try (or any kitchen-based product I should add to my arsenal), or a book I should be reading, or a housewares item that should be included in my next house renovation, or pretty much anything animal related, please email me at stephaniemaeblackburn(at)gmail(dot)com. I'm always looking for new recipes to try, books to add to my pile, and the next "it" bathroom or kitchen design element. I'm always daydreaming about the next house to renovate...

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come back!

  1. Hi Stephanie.. wondering if you'd be interested in giving us a review if I sent you some free samples. We manufacture our own sweets, with the latest invention being marshmallows with a soft jelly filled centre! delicious, mmmm!the best bit is majority of our confectionery are GLUTEN FREE.. the non-filled marshmallows are also FAT Free.

    kind regards
