What was your favorite aspect of pulling all of this story together? I always like the resolution, when the couple finally ends up together.
Most frustrating? I struggled a little with adding enough conflict in this story. I had to rewrite a lot of those scenes and add in more angst and problems.
If you could only read five books for the rest of your life, what five books would they be, and why?
Blue Diary by Alice Hoffman – Alice Hoffman is my favorite author of all time. Her writing is gorgeous. It’s poetic and beautiful, and I’m in awe of it. And I love this book. I’ve read it multiple times. It’s such an interesting story that delves into the idea that we never really know those around us.
The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger – This is my favorite love story! It drew me in from the first time I read it and I could read it again and again. Such a powerful romance. It’s a book I think about often. I love how it ended the way it began. I still sometimes take it off the bookshelf and simply re-read that last paragraph. It makes me cry every time.
