Hi there! This is Camy Tang, and I'm really jazzed to be guest blogging at the Five Scribes today!
I got a chance to visit my wonderful Audra a few weeks ago! Now, just a disclaimer, I am not a country girl. I didn't live in the city, but I wasn't exactly in the countryside, either. There was no 4-H where I grew up (although now that I think of it, our neighbors had chickens).
So I was eager to see real livestock. Laugh it up, furball, I'm serious! I'd never seen a real goat or sheep before in my life. Danica drove me out there, chortling the whole way at my wide-eyed staring.
First off, Audra gave GREAT directions to her house. We found it without a hitch, surrounded by fields. Beautiful countryside!
Next, I heard a turkey but thought it was a chicken. (Remember, non-country girl????) Danica and Audra got a hoot out of that. Then I saw the honkin' thing. Talk about a tank. Wouldn't want to have to catch HIM for Christmas dinner, that's for sure.
Audra had made lunch for us—fruit and nuts and nachos. She's such a great hostess. We had a great time doing writer-talk!
Then we got to see the animals. I petted her bunny, who used to be a blue ribbon winner. I also saw some wild cottontail rabbits, which I had only seen once before at Sharon Hinck's house in Minnesota, so that was cool.
Her goats were neat! I'd never seen goats up close before, except maybe when I was five and went to a petting zoo. Audra got her long-suffering son to help, and I milked one of her goats! It was so awesome!
(The reason I needed to milk the goat is for research—those of you on my newsletter YahooGroup know that the fourth book in the Sushi series will be a free ebook download for my YahooGroup members. The blurb on my website talks about a goat in Jenn's backyard. 'Nuff said. :)
I also got to pet her sheep. They're skittish but kind of sweet, although Audra would probably beg to differ about the sweet part.
We then used Audra's computer to look up yarn shops in nearby Boulder, Colorado and go to see her writing sanctuary. Very cozy, plus all her contest winning certificates are up on the wall just to affirm how much Audra rocks!!!
Thanks for letting me visit your home and your blog, Audra!
SCENE OF THE CRIME
The Grant family’s exclusive Sonoma spa is a place for rest and relaxation—not murder! Then Naomi Grant finds her client Jessica Ortiz bleeding to death in her massage room, and everything falls apart. The salon’s reputation is at stake...and so is Naomi’s freedom when she discovers that she is one of the main suspects! Her only solace is found with the other suspect—Dr. Devon Knightley, the victim’s ex-husband. But Devon is hiding secrets of his own. When they come to light, where can Naomi turn...and whom can she trust?
Camy Tang writes romance with a kick of wasabi. She used to be a biologist, but now she is a staff worker for her church youth group and leads a worship team for Sunday service. She also runs the Story Sensei fiction critique service. On her blog, she gives away Christian novels every week, and she ponders frivolous things like dumb dogs (namely, hers), coffee-geek husbands (no resemblance to her own...), the writing journey, Asiana, and anything else that comes to mind. Visit her website at http://www.camytang.com/ for a huge website contest going on right now, giving away fourteen boxes of books and 24 copies of her latest release, DEADLY INTENT.
