Executive Functions & YOU

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.

  1. How great you are to reblog this, Sally. And the point in your intro is right on — I’m sooooo with you there.

    Of course, as you know and share in your brilliant health and nutrition articles, you have to take steps to remain healthy OTHERWISE!
