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. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. The disciple Peter. He was fearful at times, and yet, God still used him.

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’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. 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.

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.
