Congratulations to Bonnie Calhoun by Terry Burns
Our congratulations to Bonnie S. Calhoun for being named "Writer of the Year" at the Greater Philadelphia Writer's Conference for the second consecutive year. That's terrific!
Bonnie is a force to be reckoned with in the publishing world with the many hats that she wears. As the Director of the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance, she leads a contingency of 200+ book reviewers that do bi-weekly blog tours for the latest in Christian fiction.
She is the Owner/Publisher of Christian Fiction Online Magazine which posts a monthly issue of 35+ columnists by the best and brightest authors, publishers, and agents in Christian fiction.
The American Christian Fiction Writers have designated her as the Northeast Zone Director, where she leads the membership loop for New York, New Jersey, and the New England states.
She is on faculty at the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference, teaching workshops on Blogging and writing mechanics as well as on faculty at the Colorado Christian Writers Conference and the Montrose Christian Writers Conference. She is an Author member of International Thriller Writers.
As an expert "Blog*Star", certified by Google, she dispenses problem resolution advice on the Blogger Help Forum for those using the Blogger platform and runs a blog specifically addressing blogging problems at "How Can I Do That?"
In her home-every day life, she is a Bible Study teacher and Teen Sunday School teacher at her church and serves as the webmaster for her church's website.
She runs her own business as a seamstress and clothing designer. She and her husband Bob live in a log home on 15 acres with a pond, an old apple orchard, and a dog and persnickety cat who she says "are pretty sure that we are wait-staff and they run the show!"
In her spare time Bonnie . . . hmmmm . . . what spare time?
