Today, I’m hosting an author interview. I would like to welcome Amy Lillard to the blog today. She’s also graciously offered a copy of her book, The Quilting Circle to one person who comments on the post. So, be sure and leave her a comment right here on this post to be qualified!
Hi, Amy! I’m happy you’re here and glad you could join us for this quirky little interview.
Thanksgiving or Christmas?
(That’s my favorite time too!)
If you were stranded on an island and only had three books with you to read, what would they be?
The Bible–it’s full of wisdom and great stories
To Kill a Mockingbird–I have to read this book every couple of years or so
Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein– that man is genius
(Great choices! I would definitely have the Bible with me, along with Julie Lessman’s A Passion Most Pure, and Karen Kingsbury’s Redemption)
Favorite TV Show?
Of all time? Gilligan’s Island. I guess that explains a lot. LOL
(LoL, I love Gilligan’s Island. Mine would most likely be Murder She Wrote, Big Bang Theory or Chicago Fire)
If you could pick only one author to have dinner with and hang out for an evening with them, who would it be and why?
Stephen King. The man is genius when it comes to engaging the reader, and I admire him for that. I’ve read some articles about him and we seem to have a lot of the same characteristics and writing processes. It might be because our birthdays are so close. One day apart.
(My husband loves King! I would be hardpresse on picking just one author. Mine would have to be Julie Lessman or Jason F. Wright)
Flipflops or high heels?
Flipflops, definitely flipflops
(I’m a redneck gal, so I definitely have to go with flip flops, too!)
That was fun, Amy! Thanks for answering some silly questions for us. Now, here’s more about the book for the giveaway:
United by faith, and bonded by their quilting circle, the Amish women of Wells Landing, Oklahoma, are there for one another through all life’s joys and challenges . . .
MORE THAN FRIENDSHIP
Youngest quilter Clara Rose Yutzy is planning her wedding to her longtime beau—which is why she resolutely ignores newly warm feelings for her best friend, Obadiah. But Obie is certain God intends them to be together. With the Lord’s help, he’ll prove to Clara Rose how much he loves her . . .
MORE THAN A PROMISE
Mariana Miller prayed for a child throughout fifteen years of marriage. But now, newly widowed, Mariana discovers she’s pregnant—with twins! She’s more grateful than ever for her caring community—especially Reuben Weisel, her late husband’s business partner and best friend. Reuben’s quiet strength comforts her—until he proposes marriage . . .
MORE THAN A MARRIAGE
Tess Smiley is new to Wells Landing and newly married. But her marriage isn’t the harmonious union she envisioned. Tess loves Jacob with all her heart, but her heart tells her she must take a stand—and ask for support. Only then does Jacob see how he has hurt her. But is he too late? . . .
Amy loves nothing more than a good book. Except for her family…and maybe homemade tacos…and nail polish. But reading and writing are definitely way up on the list.
Born and bred in Mississippi, Amy is a transplanted Southern Belle who now lives in Oklahoma with her deputy husband, their genius son, two spoiled cats, and one very lazy beagle. Oh, and don’t forget the stray kitty that has taken up residence on her front porch. ^..^
When she’s not creating happy endings, she’s chauffeuring her teen prodigy to guitar lessons and practice for whatever sport he’s into this week. She has a variety of hobbies, but her favorite is whatever gets her out of housework.
Amy is an award winning author with more than thirty novels and novellas in print. She is a member of RWA, ACFW, NINC, and the Author’s Guild.
