Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Anything that I've ever done that was ultimately worthwhile ... initially scared me to death." ~Betty Bender

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I asked my 10-year-old daughter this question. She answered it for me: Spiders. I'll go with that.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Oh. My. Word. One thing? Greek yogurt with extra fruit added. (I'm counting that as one thing.)

I'm on deadline for my third novel and I just realized -- just realized -- why I write books.
Huh.

I write books because . . . life is messy. And I write stories that wade into that mess. Stories about how we make a mess of our lives . . . or someone else messes up or lives . . .

and yet, there is still hope.

There is redemption.

There is the reality of "But God . . . " in the midst of the mess.

Life is messy.

Romance is messy.

That's reality.

And that's why I write books.

Because, as I like to say, there's more to the Happily Ever After than the Fairy Tales tell us.
