Welcome Jessica, to your “Cold Call” interview!! For those of you who don’t know what the “Cold Call” feature is, at the beginning of the month I have a poll, the winning author YOU then get to interview!! Jessica Nelson won this month’s vote and I am thrilled to present her here with YOUR questions. Without any further ado, heeeerrrre’s Jessica!
Okay, I gotta take the first question: what made you set a book in Harney County, Oregon??
I was researching the path of the influenza and saw that it didn’t quite hit as hard in certain areas. When I googled Oregon, I somehow came across pictures of Harney County and thought it was so gorgeous that I wanted to set my story there. J
You've taken some way cool trips with your adventure-lovin' hubby. Which was the most fun so far, and why?
I haven’t been able to go with him as much as I’d like but Costa Rica is definitely my highlight. I love practicing my Spanish and the people there are very friendly.
Friend Katie Ganshert asked this question on her blog a while back and I loved it: if you could relive one day of your life, which day would you revisit and why?
Oh boy…wow. That’s a good one. I think the day after I had each of my sons was pretty awesome. Holding them and stuff…having kids really opened my eyes to how I think God must feel for us. It’s an amazing kind of love, completely unconditional and unexpected.
I read in Jessica’s bio she got married almost immediately after she graduated high school. Since I’m getting married while studying for my university degree, I have to ask—what was it like planning a wedding while still in high school? I can imagine it’s just as crazy as planning one at college. : )
Uh-oh. Well, let me say right now that I’m not much of a planner and I never dreamed of my wedding so I did whatever was easiest. Thankfully a lady from church helped plan things and showed me what I was supposed to do. I do remember crying in church one day when they started asking me a bunch of questions about what I wanted. LOL My advice to you is be flexible and don’t overly worry about it. The day passes SO quickly and you’ll probably barely remember most of it. Enjoy yourself. J
A quicky fun one: how do you like your days: served with coffee and ice cream… or M&M’s with Iced tea?
Oh my goodness, DEFINITELY coffee and ice cream!!
