Interview with Michelle Sutton

Captain's Log, Stardate 10.02.2008

Today, I have an interview with Michelle Sutton, who wrote It’s Not About Me

Annie has it all. She's attractive, graduated with honors, was accepted at the college of her choice, has supportive parents, good friends, and a steady boyfriend who loves her. One night when an unexpected visitor appears, Annie's safe world is destroyed. As she tries to recover the pieces of her broken life, a war ensues between two brothers who both claim to have her best interests at heart. But who will Annie choose? Or will she decide to turn her life in a different direction?

And now, here’s the interview with me and Michelle!

What’s the one thing you want your readers to take away from It’s Not About Me?

A better understanding of real love, true faith and spiritual joy.

What’s your favorite scene from your novel?

The first kiss, of course.

If you were a dessert, what would you be and why?

Hot fudge sundae (but with mint chocolate chip ice cream)

I know you read a million books at the same time, but what 3-5 books are you in the middle of reading right now?

In the Shadow of Lions by Ginger Garrett
Table for One by Georgiana Daniels.
The Light Across the River by Stephanie Reed
The Queen of Sleepy Eye by Patti Hill
When the Soul Mends by Cindy Woodsmall

Finish this sentence: Writing a novel is like …

Getting in shape (physically) because it involves a lot of hard work, commitment, sweat, and energy. It will sometimes tire you out, and will at other times energize you. Most of all, it will show the more you work at it, until eventually your novel will look better than a finely sculpted physique.

You’re off the hotseat! Any parting words?

Nope. Thanks for having me. I appreciate it.
