In an interview earlier this year, the question of having any author for dinner was asked and my answer was the same then as it is now….
I met Ms. Roberts at a writers conference in the early 1990’s and have admired her ever since. Her advice, instruction and encouragement back then spurred my desire to write and her gift for storytelling has kept me entertained and inspired to date.
After the initial smoozing and flattery over appetizers we’d get down to some serious conversation. I’d love to know how she keeps creating dynamic stories, over and over and what her formula for success is. I’ve heard it said that she doesn’t believe in writer’s block or any of the other excuses we sometimes use to procrastinate, so I’d like to know how she copes when stuff happens and life just plain gets in the way of writing.
But more than the typical Q&A session, I’d love to have a normal conversation with the woman who has touched lives and impacted hearts the world over for so many years. I picture her as a warm, caring individual with depths of compassion and people skills and would enjoy discovering what qualities she looks for in a friend, does she have insecurities despite her success, what dreams haven’t been fulfilled yet and other such information best friends would share.
One of my dreams is to visit Boonsboro, MD one day. Hopefully Nora and I will run into each other and maybe, with a little time to spare and share, we’ll sit down for a cup of coffee and a gab session.
Title: Circles of Fate
Blurb: Set at the tail end of the Vietnam War era, Circles of Fate takes the reader from Fort Benning, Georgia to Thibodaux, Louisiana. A romantic saga, this gripping novel covers nearly twenty years in the lives of Shaunna Chatman and Todd Jameson. Constantly thrown together and torn apart by fate, the two are repeatedly forced to choose between love and duty, right and wrong, standing on faith or succumbing to the world’s viewpoint on life, love, marriage and fidelity. With intriguing twists and turns, fate brings together a cast of characters whose lives will forever be entwined. Through it all is the hand of God as He works all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.
