Good morning campbellsworld visitors and bookworms one and all!
This morning I’m happy to introduce to you one of our newest totally talented Tell-It-To-The-World Marketing family members.
When you’ve finished enjoying this interview please do give it a like and a share, and if you like, say hello to Butterfly in the comment section.
First, tell us, in your own words, a little about you.
Hmm, I am extremely introverted. I am an avid and voracious reader. I love the sample now button on audible, because it allows me to listen to the narrator and the storyline to see if I can get sucked in. Occasionally, I’ll poke my head out of a book and watch Jeopardy! Or big bang theory, but TV is not something I enjoy much anymore. In high school I chose the name Butterfly for myself because it’s a natural symbol of transformation. My graduation speech was titled “Butterfly” and it was a poem detailing my years and thus transformations at the state school for the blind. Over the years, I continue to evolve and shed old caccoons, allowing new butterflies to emerge.
