Here are the interview questions I usually use on my own blog so decided to ask myself the same ones. We writers are known for talking to ourselves, right?
1. Tell us about your favorite book as a child and your favorite book as an adult. Can you see a connection between those books?
Hmm. That is a hard question I have never asked myself before, so I will have to think. I loved the Bobbsey Twins and Nancy Drew and other series books as a child and love series to this day. The Mitford series by Jan Karon is one of my favorites as well as Karen Kingsbury’s Redemption series and Francine Rivers’ Mark of the Lion series…
2. What is your favorite Scripture?
Eph. 3:20 and 21: “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
Do you also have a favorite Scripture that encourages you in your writing?
The verse above has been true in every aspect of my life, including my writing.
3. If you could go to any place in the world to research/write a book, what setting would you choose?
Anyplace with a beach, so Hawaii would be my first choice since it has lots of beaches!
4. I often wonder if I would write if I had to do it the old-fashioned way without computers and spell-checks and email. Is there anything about technology that you don’t like?
I don’t like it when something goes wrong with the computer, which is usually due to my being a computer klutz!
Or anything about it that you feel enhances your writing?
I love the word processor and cutting and pasting and deleting with a touch of a couple keys. Also search and find and spell and grammar check!
5. As a writer how have you had to grow and stretch out of your comfort zone?
I’ve had to open myself up to others. Now in the marketing of my book, I’ve had to put myself out there and ask people to take a look and even buy my book. I find that much easier to do if it is for a friend’s book instead of my own!
6. What advice would you give to a beginning writer that you wish someone had given you? Join ACFW and keep reading and writing and praying and persevering!
7. Do you want to add anything about your book such as how to order it?
