women who inspire


I am touched and honoured that author Kate A. Laity has chosen me as one of many women who are ‘an inspiration’ over at a new women’s group blog curiously called Women’s League of Ale Drinkers, a repository of creative women.

I’m particularly thrilled to be in the company of a fantastic Finnish musician, Ulla Suokko. And this after having already been interviewed by Kate last year for Women’s Month!

Kate herself has Finnish roots and has inspired me many a time with her blog, Wombat’s World, through which we initially “met” (read my blog post about it if you don’t know the fascinating story) and her wonderful book of stories inspired by the Finnish epic Kalevala: Unikirja. She now has a delightful book trailer out that makes me want to go back and reread her book all over again. Her first book Pelzmantel has just recently been reprinted by Immanion Press and is on my wish list.
