Today I’m celebrating…


NJ:  Hi, Harriet!  Thanks for joining me today!  First, a few questions to warm the atmosphere and for us to learn some things we probably don’t know about you.  I’m short on time and I’m sure you are, too, so let’s make this a quick one.  First question… when is your birthday?

Harriet:  September 27th

NJ:  If you have siblings, which child are you (first, second, third, etc.)?

Harriet:  Second

NJ:  When did you begin writing?

Harriet:  8 years old

NJ:  Why did you begin writing?

Harriet:  Seemed like a good thing to do

NJ:  Please put these in order of importance to you: Faith, Family, Friends, Loyalty, Honesty

Harriet:  1. Family 2. Faith 3. Honesty 4. Loyalty

NJ:  What is the one thing people who really know you might say about you to a stranger?

Harriet:  Talented

NJ:  In three paragraphs or less, if you could, how would you change the world?

Harriet:  If I could change the world, I would make the US energy independent, support NATO as much as we can, share more advances in medical research, get religious communities involved (many already are), provide drinking water, share advances in farming/farming equipment, educate women.

NJ:  Describe yourself in ONE word

Harriet:  Persistent

NJ:  THREE words that others might use to describe you

Harriet:  Talented, funny, kind

NJ:  What do you see when you look in the mirror?

Harriet:  An elderly woman

NJ:  What is the legacy you’d like to leave behind?

Harriet:  Resilience

NJ:  What contributions, if any, have you made to society?

Harriet:  I served as president of local, state and international organizations, served on countless committees, organized conferences, spoken for free, given free workshops, given money to worthy organizations, written letters to the editor, and supported legislation that improves community health.

NJ:  If at all, how has belonging to RRBC and RWISA helped you as a writer?

Harriet:  Membership has made me strive to be better.

NJ:  What has belonging to RRBC and RWISA brought to your life?

Harriet:  I am among people who understand a writer’s life and have my back.

NJ:  Harriet, I am honored to know you.  Please accept these flowers from my heart to yours.

  1. Good Morning, Lady Harriet, Good Morning, Nonnie,
    Lady Harriet, I love your answers. They have a quality in them that speaks of your humility. As you already know, I am a big fan of yours. You are a stately woman that mirrors a loving and caring heart but it also depicts a steadfastness that is exemplary. Your persistence and I-Can-Do attitude rings out and it is a pleasure to learn more about you. Take care.

    Nonnie, thank you so much for choosing Lady Harriet as a WOMAN OF EXCELLENCE. She is indeed exceptional.

    Wishing you both a lovely week.

    Shalom aleichem

    Hi Harriet and congratulations! Nice learning more about you.

    Nonnie thanks for bringing Harriet to the membership in this wonderful interview.


  5. Wonderful to learn even more about you today, Harriet! 💞 You are certainly one of the many Women of Excellence I value as a friend, member and supporter at #RRBC. You continue to be a shining example for us all! Thank you.


  6. Reblogged this on PTL Perrin Writes… and commented:
    Nonnie Jules has recognized a Woman of Excellence whom I greatly admire! Harriet Hodgson has poured her heart into her family, first raising twin grandsons and then caring for her beloved husband, all while being actively involved in bettering her community and writing excellent books. Harriet, you so deserve this!


    • I edited out grandsons and put in grandchildren on the blog. My daughter had twin boys, and it slips out automatically. ❤


  7. Hi, Nonnie! You have picked another amazing Woman of Excellence! Harriet, you have contributed more to the betterment of society than most of us will do in an entire lifetime, even while raising your twin grandchildren. To say I admire you is a vast understatement. You are so deserving of this!
