Interview with Anita Higman and Giveaway!!!

Answer the question at the end to be entered into the giveaway.  Be sure to include contact information. 

Anita is giving away two Kindle copies as well as a little novel-related gift such as a mini packet of spa goodies. (Because that is what her character Lucy enjoyed!)

1.      What would be your dream vacation?

A Mediterranean cruise that ends in Barcelona. My husband and I were fortunate enough to make that dream come true this year. Tuscany and Barcelona were the best two stops. If you get a chance to see these two places, go for it!

2.      If you could spend an evening with one person who is currently alive, who would it be and why?

Josh Groban because of the way he sings, and Leif Enger for the way he writers.

3.      What three things about you would surprise readers?

First, I love licorice ice cream, which is hard to find. Secondly, I get nervous when it comes time to shake hands during the greeting time at church. I never know what to say! I know, weird, since I’m in the word business. And lastly, my husband and I are building our retirement home—which is a small fairytale house in the woods, complete with its own turret.

4.      What are your hobbies, besides writing and reading?

I love good movies, gardening, and having my gals friends over for brunch.

5.      What advice would you give a beginning writer?

Read a lot, write a lot, and never ever give up.

6.      Tell us about A Question of Destiny—a brief blurb.

Lucy O’Brien is about to be given ten millions dollars and a chance to live a life she never imagined. Will this new found wealth be Lucy’s undoing, or can she rise above the temptations within high society and choose to become a nobler version of herself? And will the solitary Andrew Whitfield—a man who watches over Lucy as she adapts to her new lifestyle—cause her to close the door on her dreams or be the key that opens the rest of Lucy’s destiny?

7.      Tell us about the giveaway you’re offering.

I am offering two Kindle copies of my novel, and I’m also giving away a mini-spa packet of goodies, since this is what my heroine, Lucy, enjoyed.

8.      Where do you like to write?

On my computer in my office at home, but sometimes I get more creative and more accomplished when I’m writing longhand in a café. Sometimes I thrive on the gentle hustle bustle of people around me.

9.      If someone were sitting at your desk right now, what would they see?

A gargantuan mess. But if you allowed yourself not to be frightened off by the clutter, then you would see a photo of my daughter and me at Barnes & Noble with our heads together, smiling. B&N is one of our favorite hangouts. Also, on one of my shelves you’d see a wooden jewelry box that my son made for me in high school. I keep it on display in my office with other family mementoes that mean a great deal to me.

10.   Where can readers find you online?

Getting together with family. This year all three of our girls are off work at the same time and we are traveling from three states to meet together in a fourth where our oldest daughter's children and grands are. Airport pick up and delivery leaving "early morning" to arrive for schedule. Looking forward to the cousins enjoying themselves swimming, indoor ice rink or bowling; will be good just being together!

A great interview with Anita. I have read a few of her books and have enjoyed them.

My favorite holiday tradition is for Christmas. Since my hubby John and I met and married in our 50's and have grown children, it is just the two of us. So, we go out to eat and then take in a movie. We have done this for 9 years, soon to be 10. Time spent together is priceless!

Our favorite Christmas tradition is decorating the tree while listening to Christmas carols and baking Christmas cookies.My mother in law gave me a personalized sled tree ornament each year I had a baby . There are 12 ornamnets that are personalized with the childrens names because that is how many children we have. The children really enjoy the tradition of putting these ornaments on the tree and it starts lvely conversations and good fellowship.

Our annual Christmas Drop In is my favorite. We have time to spend with our church members and lots of good food.

My favorite Christmas tradition is filling everyone's stocking... finding lots of little items to surprise everyone in the family!

Our favorite Christmas tradition is 2 fold. We choose an ornament for our family that represents something that happened that year. We also get a new Christmas CD from an artist we like. A yummy tradition is that we all get a Cadbury bar in our stockings! I love that one!
