I have a confession to make. I was supposed to write a post for today. But it didn’t happen on Wednesday, nor on Thursday, and by today, I was not feeling up to writing any of my potential posts. (And yes, I am a terrible blogger in all regards, because I didn’t even have a backup post written.)
But, as always, the Lord provided. Only this morning, I discovered I was tagged by the amazing Joelle over at The Pen Inspired to take part in the “All About You Around the Blogosphere” tag. I don’t think I’ve ever been tagged before, so this is very exciting! And talk about perfect timing. 😀
So let’s get down to the rules, then the questions!
1. Answer the questions below on your blog.
2. Tag at least a couple other bloggers.
3. Have them answer these questions!
What’s your favorite book/book series and why?
My favorite book would have to be the Bible – it’s God’s Word, and without it, I’d be so lost and right on the path to hell. As someone who’s grown up in a Christian home, I’ve never really thought about what it’d be like to literally not have access to a Bible. Yet some people in the world have never heard of Jesus or the Bible. Just another reason to get down on our knees and pray.
For fiction books … that’s so hard! I just did a post on the Cheney Duvall, MD series and how much I love those. They’re definitely in the running for my favorite series, but I’m also very partial to Sarah Sundin’s Wings of Glory series. And some of the books in Roseanna White’s series. Okay, I think I just need to stop. There are so many good books out there.
Who is your favorite author?
Aaahh. These questions are way too hard. My favorite author … Sarah Sundin? My amazing sister, Kristina Hall? Roseanna White in some contexts?
This is too hard. 😀
What is your favorite food?
Mmm, food! Fruit. All kinds of fruits. Especially peaches and grapes and strawberries. And I’m also on a huge sweet potato kick. And avocados. And chocolate. Definitely chocolate.
What gives you inspiration for your books?
A lot of inspiration comes from varying places. Sometimes, especially in regard to themes, it’s something I’ve struggled with or find myself struggling with. Funny how those things come out in our writing, isn’t it? Or sometimes it’s a verse I’ve read.
For overall plots, a lot of times one idea will be jogged just from something I see or read. For example, one of the later books in the Grace Sufficient series was inspired by a documentary that talked about orphans in Russia. Another plot was inspired by a law that was recently passed in Russia. So I guess inspiration comes from a lot of places …
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Another hard one! I guess if I could live anywhere, I’d live somewhere in Eastern Europe. Like maybe Czechoslovakia or Romania or Bulgaria or Ukraine or something like that. I just want to wander through the countryside and get inspiration like the famous composer Antonín Dvořák did. Or maybe Switzerland. Or somewhere warm and tropical, like Hawaii. I’m just down for all the exotic places, it sounds like! 😊
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
This is the only easy question. 😊 Definitely an introvert.
If you had a warning label, what would yours say?
Crazy person coming your way!
Or something that would relate to my lack of sanity—especially right now while I’m editing.
Thanks again to Joelle! This was so much fun!
Now I get to tag some people. 😀
