My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

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. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I like to say that I'm not striving for happiness because happiness is often based on circumstances. Happiness can come and go.
OK, now that I've philosophized a bit, I'll say that the moments I've been perfectly happy (content) are when I look around and see my husband and kiddos (and now my son and daughter-in-love) talking, laughing, maybe playing a board game together. 

Being a family. Enjoying one another.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. The times that I've held onto anger instead of choosing forgiveness.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. My family needs to realize they cannot start a conversation with me until I am completely facing away from the computer screen. Totally facing away.

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.
