1-What inspired the idea for Falling for the Fifties?
My grandparents. They met and married after only three dates. I always wondered what it would be like to go back in time and see my ancestors. Wouldn’t it be cool to see what life was really like for them?
2-What did you as an author take away from writing Falling for the Fifties?
Life is never really in our control. We make plans, but only God sets our paths. Learning to trust in His plans—even when they are far from our own—always ends up being the best choice.
3-What type of research did you do before writing this book?
I had to do a lot of digging into hurricane hunters (the hero’s chosen profession), life in the 1950s, military uniforms and procedures, aircraft, and lots of music (Maddie is a singer).
4-Who is your favorite character in this book and why?
While I love the hero and heroine, Maddie’s grandmother is such a fun character. She is spunky, yet a lady. She was a lot of fun to write.
5-What is a favorite recent book you have read?
I finished Obsession by Patricia Brandley a couple of weeks ago. It kept me on my toes and was a great fast-paced read.
