The Muffin Commando Squad - A-Z 2015 Challenge

Logo by:

Like so many of us in the writing world we have developed wonderful friendships through cyberspace. C. Lee McKenzie and I met just this way back in 2007/08 and have remained friends/colleagues ever since. When Lee reached out to me to join The Muffin Commando squad under her guidance for the A-Z 2015 Challenge I eagerly accepted.

My esteemed partners in crime...

Our fearless leader, C. Lee McKenzie
Yvonne Ventresca
Elizabeth Seckman
Carrie Butler
Patricia Lynne
Tyrean Martinson
Tara Tyler
Tammy Theriault

We are all working to prepare our posts for the Blogging from A-Z 2015 Challenge and we are looking forward to engaging with visitors to our blogs and visiting with fellow Blogging from A-Z 2015 Challenge participants.

Good luck and I look forward to chatting with you!

  1. Partners in crime? Come on, we are angels, muffiny good angels... *shifty eyes* ;)

  2. We are partners in chocolate chip, banana, pumpkin "muffinness." And we come packing, right? You're helping to make this a lot of fun, Donna. Thanks.

    1. Awww thanks! Can't believe it's right around the corner!

  3. Lee has put together one of the best Minion groups. Quality people and lots of them! That was always my secret.

    1. I'm always humbled by your heartwarming words of support!

  4. Enjoyed reading your post, I am usually in Lee's Minion Group, perhaps that's why it's one of the best this year. Good luck with the challenge.

    1. Awww thanks Yvonne! I'm delighted to connect with you through out posts!

  5. Happy to be partnered with so many fine muffin-minions!


  6. Ugh. I'm in a group but I can never remember the name! But I have my posts written almost completely now. Just finished "U" earlier today. Can't wait to read everyone's!

    1. Glad to hear you are almost (or may already be done) with your posts. I'm all set to get. Looking forward to reading as many posts as possible!

  7. I love Lee too! Sounds like a great group. Can't wait to read all the A-Z posts. :)

    1. Thanks Jess. I'm looking forward to the posts too!

  8. Sounds like an amazing group. :) It's funny how we can develop these strong connections over the web. It's a new feeling to me, and I cherish and value these friendships as I do the friends I see in person.

  9. Sounds like wonderful group of writers. Waiting to read all the fab A-Z posts.
