I retired as a nurse practitioner in 2013, and became a full time novel writer. I added blogger in 2014 and created the blog site Before Sundown remember what made you smile. From the beginning, Before Sundown was honored with awards, and blog tours. I continue to be ever grateful, and appreciative of dedicated worldwide followers who like, comment, share and tweet posts. I started the blog to connect and support fellow bloggers, friends and family by writing blog posts about them--their books, interests, professions and travels. Overtime, I've added excerpts from WIPs as a co-author, and a final version (1/2020) of the first three pages of my book, Sunset Inn - wish you were here. Next, on to the publishing. The collections of sunsets/sunrises on the Welcome page came from bloggers all over the world. I wanted visitors to remember what made them smile Before Sundown. What better way than to offer them breathtaking sunsets or sunrises? http://cerobinsonauthor.com
