Another week, another chance to win! So here goes:
This author has kept a journal since she was nine and still has all of them. A book lover for decades, she immediately drove to the public library when she got her license. She was the state champion typist for Louisiana in high school and collects typewriters, including a prized green model. A resident of the government projects as a youngster, she has had lunch at the White House with Nancy Reagan, watched from nearby as John Glenn made his nostalgic return to space in the 1990s and interviewed George H.W. Bush before he was elected president. She loves sitting in the porch swing, going to flea markets and writing letters to friends — all activities that help her hurry less and worry less.
- 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.
- 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. Many of our featured authors also offer a book to the winner, but that changes from week to week, so no guarantees.
- 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: We have a winner. Thebudgetmaven correctly identified our featured author and will receive books from both of us as soon as we receive her address.
Judy Christie is the author of the Green series, including the recent “Rally ‘Round Green.” Judy’s debut novel, “Gone to Green,” was released in 2009 as part of the launch of the inspirational fiction line from Abingdon Press and received a starred review in Publishers Weekly. The stories follow a big-city journalist who winds up running a small-town paper in the fictional town of Green, La. The town changes journalist Lois Barker, and she changes the town. Judy’s first Young Adult novel, “Wreath,” will be released in October by Barbour Publishing. Wreath is a 16-year-old girl who is determined to finish high school after her mother dies – and lives in a junkyard to do so.
Judy is passionate about helping busy people slow down and enjoy each day more and leads workshops and retreats around the country. She is the author of the popular Hurry Less Worry Less nonfiction series, including “Hurry Less Worry Less at Christmas” and “Hurry Less Worry Less for Families.” A journalist for 25 years, her first editing job was at The Barret Banner in elementary school. She lives in North Louisiana with her schoolteacher husband. For more information about Judy, see www.judychristie.com, or visit with Judy on Facebook.
My Name the Author feature is going on another hiatus. I do have one author scheduled for December. However we won’t get back into weekly posts until some time after the New Year. So please keep reading the blog and checking back on Wednesdays so you won’t miss out.
