June 1st already. And I'm delighted to feature another author on my blog. Let the guessing begin.
This award-winning author has written both contemporary and historical Christian fiction. All through high school she dreamed of becoming an actress someday, singing alto in Glee Club and performing in school productions of Camelot, The Music Man, The Mouse that Roared, and The Miracle Worker. The first car she owned was a fire-engine red 1968 Ford Torino GT Fastback with a 390-horsepower V8 engine. Vroom. She and her husband live in the central U.S. and have two grown children and one empty nest. She sings in her church choir, loves Heath bars, and drives a sensible white Toyota, though she still misses her muscle car. (Click photo for larger image.)
- Entrant must put their guess in a comment on the Write Thinking blog. Commenting on Facebook or Twitter doesn't count toward a chance to win. (At present, commenters are not required to sign in, making it easier for more folks to play.)
- Entrant must have a USA mailing address to be eligible to win a book. (Sorry. Cost of postage outside the US is too prohibitive.)
- The first person to name the featured author correctly wins a Robin Lee Hatcher novel (of Robin's choice). If no one has guessed correctly by Friday morning, there will be no winner for this round.
- If there is a winner, he or she will be announced in an update at the bottom of this post. If the winner fails to contact Robin at her Write Thinking email address (see left sidebar) with his/her mailing address, no prize will be awarded to a runner-up.
- No one who has won a book within one month is eligible to win.
Be sure to check back to this post on Friday to see the answer and to see if you've won.
Update: Well, I'm surprised. We stumped readers this week. And I thought for certain all fans of Liz Curtis Higgs would be able to envision her putting her nose up to a flower and breathing deeply. 😉
In her best-selling series of Bad Girls of the Bible books, workbooks, and videos, Liz Curtis Higgs breathes new life into ancient tales about the most infamous—and intriguing—women in scriptural history, from Jezebel to Mary Magdalene. Biblically sound and cutting-edge fresh, these popular titles have helped more than one million women around the world experience God's grace anew. Her best-selling historical novels, which transport the stories of Rebekah, Leah, Rachel, Dinah, Naomi, and Ruth to eighteenth-century Scotland, have also helped her readers view these familiar characters in a new light. And her nonfiction book, Embrace Grace, winner of a 2007 Retailers Choice Award, presents her message of hope in an engaging and personal way, speaking directly to the hearts of her readers.
So, check back with us next Wednesday for another round of Name This Author.
