My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts.

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. Find out more at
