Love that candid, Kimberley!

About Christian Fiction Readers Retreat...

In what ways have you participated in CFRR? 

KW: This (2019) is the first year I haven’t been on a book tour at the same time so I’m excited to participate!

What is your favorite aspect of CFRR? 

KW: Connecting with readers!

Beth: The feeling is mutual, I assure you!

What part of CFRR are you most excited about?

KW: Simply getting to go! To see so many author friends and meet readers in person.

Beth: It's a big ol' book party! What's not to love?!

Are you a hugger?

Just for fun...

What is something you want to accomplish before you die?

If you didn't like writing books, what would you do for a living?

KW: Teach Music. (Private Piano, Voice)

Beth: That sounds lovely! I enjoy one-on-one instruction.

About reading...
When reading, do you block out the world around you or seek a quiet retreat?

KW: I like quiet when I read.

Beth: Anytime quiet is an option, that's my preference!

How do you organize your books? 

KW: Alphabetical by author. I’ve got fifteen tall bookshelves full of fiction.

Beth: I think I need to come over for a visit!

How often do you pleasure-read? 

KW: Every day. One – I love it. Two – it’s important for an author to read, read, read. 😊

Beth: Smart lady!

About writing...

How many books have you written? published?

KW: 20+ My twentieth book releases this year – yay!

Beth: Another new series, yay!

What is your next release?

KW: The Golden Bride – from Barbour (April, 2019)

Beth: Coming up soon!!!

What are your must-have writing supplies? 

KW: Post it notes, Levenger notebook with my loooooooong synopsis and important research printed out so I can make hand-written notes on it as I’m typing at the computer, water – lots of water.

Beth: Staying hydrated is very important!

Are you more comfortable working in solitude or among a crowd?

KW: Solitude and quiet!

Beth: Hmmm, seems like we mentioned this before... well, it's worth repeating!!
