About Me


Hi there!
Freda here, the editor and opinionator of Freda's Voice.
Welcome!

Let me tell you a little about myself.
I am a Métis mother of two adult children, two dogs and a hubster.
I have a love for poetry, photography and books.

I also have a day job, which I love most of the time.

You are welcome to visit my photography blog, Day One.

I also post my poetry on Tumblr, along with videos and such. However, this is pretty much the only spot to read my poetry. If you'd like to check that out visit Pretentious Prose.

As for my blogging on Freda's Voice, my goal is to bring you all the things I love and more.
If I read a good book, I hope that my reviews project that and possibly you would read that book too.
Same as for any product or service I review.
I also am a fan of giveaways.
Being a person who has entered and won many giveaways, I feel it's great to give back.
I host giveaways and host sponsored giveaways. 
Feel free to email me anytime for either a review or giveaway. I am always open to email.

So now you now a little bit about me. Feel free to comment with any questions, comments or suggestions.
Start a conversation too, if you like. Tell me about you!

  6. Hey Freda!

    Hello from FishFlix.com

    My name is Max, I’m writing because I recently found your blog and noticed that you sometimes review Christian products. We’re looking for bloggers like you who would like to review a Christian DVD for us.

    FishFlix.com is one of the top sites on the web for Christian and family-friendly DVDs. We love having bloggers review products for us because it gives us perspective on the products we sell, and provides us with ever-valuable backlinks.

    Could I send you a free DVD in exchange for an honest review and two links to our site? If you’re interested, please reply with your mailing address and your preference of movie type [Children’s | Feature Film | Documentary].

  7. Oh my goodness Freda. I came across your blog by accident. It's been a long time. I often wondered how you were doing. Sounds like you are doing well. :) Your blog is great. You probably don't remember me but if you think on it you will. :)

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
