Happy Belated 4th Anniversary to Sorbo Writer’s Blog!
This past July marked the 4th Anniversary of Sorbo Writer’s Blog. And whereas I previously celebrated with stories and art from you, Kevin Sorbo’s fans, I did nothing for 2013.
So, I want to celebrate now!
A little history: As a freelance writer and long-time Sorbo fan I sought (and continue to seek) outlets for stories about him, things we all know and love, like his work with A World Fit For Kids! and numerous other charities, how well he respects and treats his fans, his many television and film credits (including awards), his love of family and country, his humor and sarcasm that make me laugh, and, following publication of his excellent book, True Strength, his candid confession about the four strokes that almost killed him and how he uses his experience to inspire and motivate others.
Upon not receiving the response from editors for which I had hoped, I decided to do it myself. I consulted some prior and new Sorbo friends about creating a place where fans could express their love for him however they wish (stories, art, vid, etc.). I received much feedback and support for which I am grateful.
One of those friends was Mara from Brazil who runs the Kevin Sorbo Brazilian Forum, as well as creates some beautiful Kevin art, including the monthly calendars that you see here. She was and remains one of my most positive supporters and dearest friends.
So, when I thought about what I should do to celebrate the 4th Anniversary of this blog, I immediately asked Mara if she would create some of her lovely art. Within hours she sent these two images. Aren’t they great? She’s fantastic! Obrigada, mi querida amiga!!!
