Author Revealed

Beth K. Vogt
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 trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I like to laugh, so I would say my sense of humor.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Oh, I want to rattle off a list of my girlfriends--so many of them are my heroes. I admire my friend, Renee, who lost her son to cancer. He was only 13. Renee walked that journey out with faith, honesty and courage.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Is it possible to have a "favorite" villain? Yikes! I'll go with Thomas Gabriel, John McClane's nemesis in "Live Free or Die Hard." The man had no conscience.

Q. What do you regret most?

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

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.
