That's so tragic… it must have been dreadfully hard for everyone... actually your answer could qualify as a response to my next question…
What’s the most difficult thing you’ve tackled?
But, gosh, my questions so far have turned out to be really tough.
Share three interesting things you’ve learned…
Oh, good, a fun question. I was beginning to get depressed.
1. It’s never too late to fall in love
2. Our bodies age, but our minds stay forever young
3. Life is filled with miracles if we’re attuned to watching for them
I love the things you’ve learned! They’re something we could all count as great lessons.
Tell us about the inspiration for COURTING HIS FAVORITE NURSE
The inspiration began with a vision of three teenagers dressed up and ready for their high school prom. What struck me about the image of the two young women and one guy was they were all bald. Two of them had shaved their heads in honor of the other.
That’s all I’m going to say about that right now if you don’t mind.
Of course! Author’s prerogative! We’ll look forward to finding out more when we pick up your book. But as an inspiration that is amazing and poignant. The three young people were obviously true friends.
Here's the back-cover write up for COURTING HIS FAVORITE NURSE!
Anne Grady knew better than anyone that love was complicated. When she’d left her hometown, she thought she was leaving her past heartbreak behind for good, as well. But practically the moment she returned to care for her injured parents, she stumbled headlong into their confidant—her first love, Jack Lightfoot.
Jack had been unable to deny his feelings for Annie when he was a teenager dating her best friend, and he certainly couldn’t muffle the spark twisting between them now—even if memories of the past kept threatening to push them apart. This time Jack wasn’t going to let history repeat itself—he was going to show Annie that the two of them were meant to be much more than best friends!
So tell us, what do you do just for fun?
I’m a very silly person, and have the ability to slip into adolescent mode easily. I’m a giggler by nature. I love to laugh, to say goofy things and have a good old fashioned belly laugh with my friends and family. Nothing is more fun than that.
