Welcome back Laura Frantz! Since this is the third time for you to visit, I thought I would throw in some fun questions, maybe some that aren’t part of the norm in other interviews. :- )
If you could go anywhere on vacation where would it be?
Scotland! I’m sure you’re not surprised by thatJ. Love those lilts, kilts, sheep, lemon curd, scones and such.
Do you have any pets?
Digger is our big lab-retriever mix and Cracker is our black cat. I dream of having a canary that sings!
Your favorite book that you have written?
Oh my! That’s kind of like choosing a favorite child! Each is a favorite in their own way. But if I had to choose it would probably be Love’s Reckoning because of Silas. Though I do love Red Shirt and that rascal, Colonel McLinn…
What is your favorite pastime?
Currently I’m in a knitting frenzy and am reading George MacDonald’s books. I also love to go to the pool and take long walks. And I love to cook, can, and garden, but no necessarily in that order!
I used to say The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery but lately I would choose anything by George MacDonald, the 19th-century Scots pastor/novelist.
It’s a tie! North and South and The Last of the Mohicans. I don’t usually rewatch movies but can nearly quote these!
What people have inspired you in your writing journey?
My brother, Chris, inspired me to share my stories when I was content to just let them sit in a drawer. He’s a pastor/missionary in Spain. As far as writing mentors, Julie Lessmann has blessed me beyond words with her Christ-like passion and the selfless promotion she does for my books. She’s always there, always in prayer, and always writes from the depths of her heart/soul. Also, readers who’ve embraced my stories and support me with reviews and mail mean more than I can say and inspire me to keep writing.
What character in a novel you have read has stood out and seemed to stand the test of time?
Neil MacNeill, the Scottish doctor, in Christy. And Christy herself, of course.
If you could meet one person from history who would it be and why?
Other than Jesus, that would be my hero, Daniel Boone. He was a remarkable man and I’ve never found one negative thing about him in all the research I’ve done. Readers have even talked me into including him in a future Kentucky story.
Okay, last one and a fun one for our readers today: If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take one thing, what would it be? Why?
Honestly, my Bible. It’s the only thing that’s needed.
Too fun, thanks for joining us for a third time!! It is a privilege. :- )
Casey, you make returning a joy, always. Blessings on your beautiful blog and ministry!
