AUTHOR INTERVIEW – LINDA BRODAY
I’m so excited to be here and tell readers about my new book—To Catch a Texas Star. This story of danger, secrets, and love will conclude the Texas Heroes series.
Marley Rose McClain is all grown up and shattered to learn the secret her parents have kept all these years. Everything she’s believed about herself is a lie. But thankfully, she has Roan Penny to help her navigate it all and regain her sense of worth.
Readers are always curious about my life so I’m pulling back the curtain a little.
Q: What experience had a profound effect on your life?
A: Without a doubt it was the 1979 tornado in Wichita Falls, Texas. My kids were small, and I had a six-month-old daughter. We laid down in our hallway, put the children underneath, and clung to each other as the wind ripped our house apart. When we crawled out from under the rubble, everything was gone. I’ll never forget that feeling of hopeless despair.
Q: What personality trait has helped you most as an author?
A: My drive and determination. I’m so focused that people call me obsessive, but I like order and I keep lists of everything. I think that’s the secret to success.
Q: When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
A: My earliest memory is of someone reading to me and I remember feeling the magic of the words. I was making up my own stories before I knew how to write. I’ve always known I was meant to be a writer.
Q: If you could have dinner with any author (living or dead,) who would it be?
A: Harper Lee without a doubt. I’d love to ask what drove her to write To Kill a Mockingbird. And how she felt when it was made into a movie. Fascinating stuff.
Q: What is something you thought was true only to discover it wasn’t?
A: I used to believe that writers were anointed by God, therefore people to put on pedestals. I also thought they were rich. Oh, dear Lord, did I find out differently! Writers are everyday people, and they have to nurture and develop their gift. Writing is hard work.
Q: What’s next for you?
A: I start a brand-new series called Outlaw Mail Order Brides early next year. Book #1 is The Outlaw’s Mail Order Bride, and the characters spill over from my Men of Legend series. I’ve also just released my first self-published book called Gunsmoke and Lace—a collection of my short stories.
