Just match the author to what they said to the following questions. (Answers will be on the bottom, after their short bios.)
  1. Favorite book quote from a classic?  ""It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." - Pride and Predjudice, Jane Austin. I love the tongue in cheek tone of this "truth"."
  2. Favorite book of an author of CFRR? "
    The Proposal at Siesta Key,  Shelley Shepard Gray
  3. Favorite book when you were younger? "The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster"
  4. Favorite classic book quote? " 'I'll think about that tomorrow.' Scarlet O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind" ;)"
  5. Chocolate or Vanilla? "I don't understand the questions, what do you mean Chocolate OR Vanilla, why not both, but if I had to chose it would be Chocolate, all the way."

  13. Favorite title of one of your books? "'Bethany's Calendar' because it is a memoir of my daughter Bethany"
  14. Sugar or Honey? "Honey" 
  15. Favorite Bible verse?  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 "
