About Author

Howdy there!  My name is Dawn Martinez: Born in the year of 1961, grew up in Ohio and Alabama. I hope you find my slapstick statements and cowgirl ways a pure delight, because what you see is what you get with me.  I feel I was born to bring a little piss and vinegar to the world to others.  So watch out, I have a sharp tongue on replies and it might make you laugh?  Let’s say: “I’m spunky and I know it!”

Just a little about what I love to do: I dig traveling, trying new things and meeting different people  and love the great outdoors.  I am a Horse breeder by trait but relish living on the wild side in teaching teens how to drive! My hobbies are race cars, white water rafting in my kayak, storytelling, gardening and long hikes while gathering herbs.  I am earth bound and spiritual an open to many different cultures. I adore reading and love the smell of pages. My favorite rest and relaxation is laying in my hammock in the evening to watch the New Mexico watermelon skies change and then show me the brilliance of the stars.

I have taken on a career in music internet radio. I am a CEO, and part-time DJ at Radio Indie FreeForm a internet radio station. I am passionate and proud to foster globally Indie Music Artist and free form their music free of charge.


I would like to Thank you for stopping by SlingShot Blog; I created this short travel read out of fun. My humanitarian mission into Haiti made me think to create a story, sell it and give my proceeds to help AHAMES.org.   Instead of writing about the destruction and the sorrow I experienced, I made my tale into a ass-kicking short story romance novel easy for all cultures to read.  Then while I was learning to market Slingshot, I found the world of Blogging and now I have decided to create this blog for all of you to get to know the main Character, Celeste and her unspoken words!

After hearing a large response from my friends who love the spitfire Celeste after they read Slingshot, they wanted more and thus encouraged me to write another adventure.  So I am currently working on a series to Slingshot.  Since I am blogging every day creating a story with Celeste, in Wounded Soldier, I am diffidently going to  publish this story.  I do plan to modify it due to it being written rough and no corrections on editing.  But I am very please with the story and hope you enjoy it too.

Slingshot is available through Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1489590250/ref=rdr_ext_sb_ti_hist_3 Barnes and Noble, Ingram, and Kindle, it is available Worldwide too.  Or you can buy directly from my Website: http://slingshotbaby69.wix.com/slingshot  For the WorldWide beautiful people…just go to your amazon site and buy it in your language!  If any of you buy the story, please remember that Authors live on your REVIEWS…even if they are bad, your comments are appreciated, and are a learning tool of opinion!~
Last but not least, I am proud of my oldest daughter for designing my cover to my book! Thank you my baby! Kiss Kiss…

  1. Hello…

    I was recently ‘told off’ by a blogger (not a follower I might add), who said my style of ‘welcome’ note was very much against blogging etiquette. Hmm, well I hope not to cause offence, but as you volunteered to become a follower of Uncle Spike’s Adventures, I just wanted to catch up and say “thank you, and that I appreciate your ‘follow’ as there are so many interesting and entertaining blogs out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on our farm in Turkey. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process. That’s not me trying to be pushy or ‘spamming’, but just want you to know what I’m all about.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…

    1. Hola Uncle,
      Ya know I wouldn’t bother thyself with bloggers who want to rant and rave their opinions on a topic or photograph. I say piss off and IT’S YOUR space they invaded and if they don’t like well….I think ya don’t need them!~ I too got my ear bit off when asking a Reviewer to take a shot at my short story. Man talk about who let the dogs out…grrrrr So I deleted them off my site! I love to read and listen to other’s thoughts just to open my mind to understand different cultures, thought process, and adventures. I will plan to stop by here and there to read old postings when I find the time to relax and scroll through. Tis my pleasure for stopping by you’re site and thank you for an update about ya darlin’. Watch out I will fare warn you I am a spitfire and will say what I want in a funny, odd, or loving way…Kiss Kiss Spike and may your path of travels always find a outlet to freedom of speech!~
