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. 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.)

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'd like to meet Sara from the Old Testament. She's the first late-in-life mom that we know of, and that's a topic very close to my heart. I became a mom again at 41, when I had three teens! And then I wrote a MOPS-brand book about it.
So I'd like to sit and talk all things "Mommy-Come-Lately" with the first late-in-life mom.

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. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. David Curtiss, the hero in Susan May Warren's thriller "Wiser Than Serpents." He is willing to lay down his life--literally--for the woman he loves.

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.
