Book Lover Questions…
What is your favorite book and why? My favorite book is the Bible. There is adventure, romance, poetry, and instruction in all those wonderful pages.
What’s your favorite genre to read? Anything and everything written by Charles Swindoll.
Where do you like to read? In my over-stuffed, comfy recliner.
Do you prefer paper books or ebooks? You can’t beat the smell and feel of paper books.
Do you prefer to buy or borrow books? I have always agreed that you can never own enough books.
Do you stop reading when you are tired or when you hit chapter breaks? I like to get to the chapter breaks, but then I get to them and have to keep reading until I fall asleep.
When you finish a book do you usually keep it, throw it away, sell it, or give it away? My book hoarding tendencies are too strong. I keep every one of them.
What helps you decide on a book? (Book reviews, suggested by friend, by browsing the shelves, etc.) Browsing the shelves. I like to read a few pages to decide if I want to read something.
Do you prefer to read a book that stands on its own or is a part of a series? I like either. Although, I have started a few series and have had to wait for the author to finish the next one. That is very frustrating for me.
So You Want to be a Writer questions…
A few sentences about your writing: What do you write (blog entries, novels, poetry, etc)? I have not really found what is most comfortable for me yet. I know what I like to write, but I want it to come from deeper inside, express more emotion and feeling. I have written some poetry and a lot of blog entries, but I have a desire to take the reader outside their comfort zone.
Why do you write? I have always written. Whether it is good or not I just keep writing. I love the keys on the keyboard. Putting words together is such a beautiful thing to me.
Did you always know that you wanted to write? Yes! My very first easy reader I copied word for word in a notebook wishing I had put those words together. I was mesmerized by the words and emotions of the story. I can’t remember the book, but I knew then that is what I wanted to do.
What’s your favorite food? I am a steak and potatoes gal. Preferably prime rib, but any nice cut of beef will do.
Favorite color? Blue, baby blue or denim blue
Favorite song? Music Box Dancer
Favorite movie? August Rush
Favorite TV show? I Love Lucy
If you developed a superpower what would it be and why? The healing touch. I hate to see anyone in pain. Whether it be illness, injury, disease, or heart ache I feel the pain with the other person.
What did you want to be when you were little? I wanted to be an English teacher.
What is the answer to life? Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your mind, and all your soul.
