Belated Who's your hero bloghop

Once again coming to the party a little late, but I thought I would share with you the person, who inspired me to write. Michelle Wallace and J LCampbell's Blog hop.

Well I used to write my parents letters before I could spell and properly form letters and they would be delighted. This then developed into creating my own little books on anything I could think of as I enjoyed the stories they read to me and my mother was a librarian and instilled  love and reverence in me for books. Then I started writing my own stories...

Over the pat few years my heroine has been my lovely Internet friend, Sharon Luchessi, who was like a surrogate Mum, best friend, confidant and no 1 fan and she would patiently and enthusiastically direct my writing to help me better hone my skills. She was a wonderful person who sadly died this March and my inbox aches its emptiness. However, I still have her in my heart and know she is supporting me still in her happy haven in Heaven.
How about you?


  1. Hi Madeleine .. I am sorry to read you've lost one of your online mentors and friends, who inspired you to write and continue writing .. you've had a tough year ...

    I always wrote home - but none survive ... however when I set off for South Africa - my writing home really set off - and probably established the way I write now ... educative, informative with some history ... those letter's I still have ...

    We've got a blog hop: Want to make a difference blog fest - for the food banks ... on 4th - 6th December ... I posted last year 16th Nov .. and here's MJs link:

    Would be good if you'd join us - I can't find the linkylist .. buried on FB, or G+ .. or space?!

    Cheers and take care and look after yourself .. Hilary

    1. Bless you again, Hilary. We handed out leaflets for our local food bank last weekend. It is a great cause so I will certainly check out the link. x

  2. Yes, they inspire us from wherever they are, be it miles away or in spirit. It's so hard to lose someone, but then we take on their memories in our hearts and somehow we keep moving forward. Best to you. I know it's hard to see and feel those who have moved on at times, but we must have faith they are always there :)

    1. Thanks M J yes they are there in spirit and in our memories, so true.

  3. I'm so sorry your friend isn't with you anymore. Sounds like she had a huge impact on your life.

    1. Absolutely thank you.

  4. So sorry to read about your loss, Madeleine. Take care.
    I popped in to wish you a Happy New Year!

    1. Bless you Michelle, thank you. This Christmas has been more relaxed than previous years for us, which has been welcome. Happy New Year to you too.
