I’m thrilled and honored to welcome Tricia Goyer as my guest today! Tricia is a prolific author with dozens of fiction and non-fiction books under her writer’s belt. (And she also happens to be an agency-mate of mine…I’m not sure how I ended up in her fabulous company, but I digress…) 🙂 Her latest title sounds absolutely fascinating!
Tricia Goyer is a CBA best-selling author of over 30 books and the winner of two American Christian Fiction Writers’ Book of the Year Awards (Night Song and Dawn of a Thousand Nights). She co-wrote 3:16 Teen Edition with Max Lucado and contributed to the Women of Faith Study Bible. Also a noted marriage and parenting writer, she lives with her husband and children in Arkansas.
Welcome, Tricia! Let’s get to the questions, shall we?
Opener Question: What seven words best describe you?
God-lover, Friend, Creative, Patient, Optimistic, Listener, Loyal
1) On the beach or in the spa? Beach. I feel guilty at a spa!
2) Fast and furious or Slow and methodical? Slow and methodical. It seems like I get a lot done, but I do one thing at a time … slowly.
3) Cereal and milk or Eggs and toast? Eggs and toast. I pretty much eat eggs every morning!
4) ESPN or CNN? Uh, ABCs? I don’t watch TV, but I DO read lots of board books!
5) Rock-and-roll or Rock-a-bye-baby? LOL. Rock-a-bye-baby. I’m completely in love with our 21-month-old adopted daughter.
6) Bejeweled and sparkling or Simple and subtle? Simple and subtle for sure! I’m not a blingy type of person!
7) Rocky road or Mint chocolate chip? Mint chocolate chip for sure! I very much dislike anything with marshmallows!
I agree with you on the marshmallow thing, Tricia! My one exception might be S’Mores. And I loved your rock-a-bye-baby answer. There’s nothing better than snuggling with a baby and singing lullabies. Your daughter must be about the same age as mine. I think I have all our board books memorized and like you, I wouldn’t trade one second of it. 🙂
Thanks so much for being my guest today!
Chasing Mona Lisa
It is August 1944 and Paris is on the cusp of liberation. As the soldiers of the Third Reich flee the Allied advance, they ravage the country, stealing countless pieces of art. Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring will stop at nothing to claim the most valuable one of all, the Mona Lisa, as a post-war bargaining chip to get him to South America. Can Swiss OSS agents Gabi Mueller and Eric Hofstadler rescue DaVinci’s masterpiece before it falls into German hands?
With nonstop action, Chasing Mona Lisa is sure to get readers’ adrenaline pumping as they join the chase to save the most famous painting in the world. From war-ravaged Paris to a posh country chateau, the race is on–and the runners are playing for keeps.
Blog Readers: Let’s talk…Are you a marshmallow fan? What’s your favorite thing to put marshmallows in? Or what about board books? Any favorites from when you were a kid?
