Hey guys! Today I’m back with another interview (this time it’s a human)! Laura is a Christian author, blogger, full-time writer, and an amazing person! Her answers are in bold! Also, I’m hoping to do more interviews with bloggers, authors, and just people in general! So let me know in the comments if you’d like to do that! So…let’s get started!
What’s your name (or pen name): My name is Laura. I don’t exactly have any pen names, but a friend is helping me work on that. 🙂
Favorite color? Navy because it goes with practically everything. I do also like purple and yellow…Those are my other favorites. 😉
Favorite book? It seems to change every time I read a new one! I think the first book I ever really went on and on about was a WWII story, “Brothers in Arms,” by Jack Lewis Baillot. This gifted writer worked in the story of redemption in a way that you didn’t realize until the end! This story almost has you crying.
If you could choose between spring, summer, fall or winter, which would it be? Summer…I love camping, campfires, staying up late, going outside and hearing the crickets, having extra time for writing, and enjoying blue skies and sun!
If you were given an elephant and you can’t sell it or give it away. What would you do with it? If money weren’t an option, I’d build it a big barn and make a pasture for it. I’m not quite sure what I’d do after that…Maybe train it to pull a wagon?
If you could do three unique things in your lifetime what would they be? Go to Israel, write a lot of novels, live in an exotic place for an extended period of time, maybe even on a missions trip!
Someone gives you a million dollars what would you do with it? I’d give monetary gifts to each of my parents, donate some to a Christian organization, put a lot of it in savings, and spend a little on something I’ve always dreamed about getting.
Have you ever written a book or plan to? (tell us a little bit about the book) Yes! I’m, the author of a short story entitled, “Even in the Grey.” It is set in WWII, but the main focus of the story isn’t the war. Info about the book below!
Tell us a bit about your blog and what it stands for. My blog is called Beautiful Things. I want to help others find creative ways to express who they are in Christ. Whether that be through writing, creating things with their hands, or something else!…I want to help other people my age to create Beautiful Things.
What are some things that help you concentrate when writing? Being in a quiet room. I’ve tried to write with people around me, but it doesn’t work. I know a lot of writers listen to music as they write but I can’t. I may hear an epic music score and get ideas for my story through that, but I don’t listen to music as I’m writing.
What are a few things that inspire you? My family, especially my brother, other writers who’ve put their entire hearts into writing beautiful stories, some very well done movies, people and things I see around me, and the need to create things that honor God and draw others to Him.
Do you have a favorite Bible verse? Joshua 1:9 “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”
Okay, last question: What does blogging mean to you? It’s a fun activity that helps me connect with others, and forces me to do some writing.
As promised here is the info about Even in the Grey and where you can buy it! Here’s the blurb from the book!… Daniel Rogers, a young American soldier, harbors bitterness against the man who ruined his life. Memories torment him, and he can’t seem to forget the past. How can a horrible train accident, a pretty French artist, an unplanned reunion, and a pocketful of crayons help him see through his dark world and into the light of forgiveness?
You can find Even in the Grey on Amazon…just click here!
Trust me its totally worth buying!! Come on it’s on sale! Go check it out!
Okay, I hope you enjoyed it! Hopefully, I can do a lot more interviews soon!
