I love to read uplifting tales and read to be encouraged. Don’t get me wrong, reading fiction is for pure entertainment, but I would prefer to read a book over TV, any day.
Why do I read? It takes to places that I have never been to. To time periods that I have never lived in, and to experience things that I have never experienced. I love to read!
Why do I read? A good question. I read because it takes me to far away places. I read to just leave my troubles behind for the moment and get caught up into other people’s lives. I am a people person and love watching others and guessing what they think or what they do. I read to learn new things. Even novels such as those about the Amish. I learn to love and respect their lifestyles and maybe incorporate some of it in mine.
You asked why I love to read….I read because I can push the pause button or continue play until the end of the story! Reading allows me to see a movie in my mind! I can go anyway in books! Big advantage over movies, television..etc.
Thank you for being one of my favorite authors!
Yes I am here. I love authors. They take me to places I have never been. They take me on adventures and they make me stop and think about life and choices. I love to read and hold an actual book in my hand. It is like a friend to me. So thanks for writing such great books for us to read!
WOW! I just finished reading THE DESIRES OF HER HEART in your TEXAS series and I LOVED it! It is one of those “rare” books that I didn’t want to put down. I went through a divorce after twenty-five years of marriage and three sons. I was devastated..felt like I was not alive or a part of society any more. All of “our friends” seemed to fade away. I felt as if I had lost all identity. After some counseling and staying in church I came to the reality that I was INTELLIGENT, BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS and that I had an inner strength that I never realized i had within me. I began reading and discovering just WHO I am now and for ALL my tomorrows. Thank you for your portrayal of STRONG WOMEN. I am now a loyal fan of your writing creations..THANK YOU
So glad to hear my books have helped, Rita. When a marriage end, it shakes everyone at a deep level. Glad you are seeking positive ways to copy.
Lyn, It was nice chatting with you at your book signing at Little Creek last week. I eagerly read My Captain’s Heart (thanks for the gift) and then too Winter Homecoming. Both were awesome! I love how you create characters that seem so real, and I love how you tell just enough to keep those pages turning… yes, I read and read and read, not wanting to put your books down. In, My Captain’s Heart, I was riveted to read that Verity nursed Dace back to health! What a great twist! You have the ability to write in such a way that your reader is pulled into your story within the first few pages. Thank you for that! I do not like to read complicated works, as that is too much work! However, being familiar with the northwoods, I loved following Will’s journey in Winter Homecoming. What a sweet story! Finally, thank you for inserting a walk with God in narrative and character prayer. Our walk with God is also by faith often times without present clarity. God bless your ideas as they flow into text!
So glad you came to the signing. It was a pleasure seeing you again. I have your kitty pin on my bookshelf in my office to cheer me on. Thanks for your kind words.
