Martha Rogers

Martha Informal 2012

 Today we welcome Martha Rogers, a freelance author of both fiction and non-fiction and a speaker, to 3 Questions Wednesday.

(1) What is your favorite book? [Bible excluded]

Martha: I have lots of favorite books, but the book that has really influenced my life besides the Bible is The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. I keep going back to it and reading parts I highlighted.

(2) If you could walk into any book, what literary character would you want to be?

Martha: I want to be Jo March from Little Women. She was my idol growing up. I always wanted to be writer and daydreamed about having a loft or place to write like she did. I loved her sisters and everything about her. I even have a doll image of her.

(3) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Martha: If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would go back to Switzerland and a little town named Grindenwald in the Alps. Stayed there for three or four days and had the most magnificent view from our hotel room. From there we went to Berne, Zermatt, the Jungfraurock and Lucerne by train. Great way to travel.

  1. Wow! What a lovely interview with Martha. Interesting that she chose Switzerland as a place to visit. I’ve never heard anyone want to travel there before. Most of the time, people say England, Ireland, Scotland, France or Australia. Will have to see about maybe going to Switzerland one day. 🙂

  2. Thank you, Carole. You’re my hero. Amy, Switzerland is a beautiful country and it’s so easy to get around by train. We had a week pass and rode all over the country. I love the Rockies and Blue Mountains here in the U.S., but the Alps are breathtaking.

  3. I loved reading your answers to the questions in your interview, Martha! YOU are my hero! Since I always have thought I would be able to write – that I should, at least try…you have epitomized my ideal of someone who took the plunge and just did it! It does not surprise me in the least that you chose Jo as your literary character to emulate — she was feisty and always seemed to be such a leader! Switzerland is also one of my favorite places in the world, though I have not had opportunity to travel through it as you have! Thanks for your wonderful books and the inspiration to aim for more than I have – as yet – done! Blessings to you!

  4. Martha has been an inspiration to me for many years, always kind and considerate and inclusive at conferences. The fact that she didn’t publish until she was a senior citizen like me, has given me great hope. She is so humble, too. I look forward every Monday to her VOTW to start my week off with God’s and her encouragement.
