Today we welcome Christina Rich, author and member of the Writing Prompts Crew, to 3 Questions Wednesday.
(1) What is your favorite book? [Bible excluded]
Christina: Oh, goodness! That’s a hard one because there are so many that I love. Strangely, I think the ones that top my list are ones outside of the genre I write. There is a true crime fiction, The Devil in Pew Number Seven by Rebecca Nichols Alonzo, that has to top the the list of most memorable. I review it here. One Day in The Life of Ivan Denisovich is another memorable one. Now, some of my favorite authors are Colleen Coble, Ronie Kendig, Janice Cantore, and Julie Lessman among many others.
(2) If you could walk into any book, what literary character would you want to be?
Christina: Tigger from Winnie-the-Pooh.
(3) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Christina: You are asking me this? Seriously? Where would I not want to go. I’ve always loved the idea of traveling. I can remember when I was a kid how I always wanted to see the Great Wall. I’d also love to see beautiful New Zealand in person, Israel, Ireland, Scotland and Greece top the list.
Thank you, Christina, for joining us on 3 Questions Wednesday! Please leave a comment for a chance to win a copy of The Guardian’s Promise.
An evil queen and her royal guards will stop at nothing to find—and kill—the rightful heir to the throne of Judah. When their pursuit leads them to Mira’s village, only her father’s bond servant, Ari, a man shrouded in secrets, can keep Mira safe.
Abandoning his life as a temple guard and becoming an indentured servant was the only way Ari could protect young Joash, the true King of Judah, from Queen Athaliah. But his sacred duty prevents him from confessing his feelings for his master’s daughter. With the future of their nation on the line, Ari and Mira will risk everything to save their people.
When she was younger, Christina tried to dig herself to China, loved Three Billy Goats Gruff, and had an obsession with maps. She gave up her dig to China but still jumps at the chance to travel even if it’s just down the road. She loves watching modern takes of fairytales and mythologies on the big screen and still has a huge obsession with maps. The older the better.
Born and raised in Kansas, where she currently lives with her husband and children, Christina loves to read stories with happily ever afters, research, take photos, knit scarves, dig into her ancestry, fish, visit the ocean, write stories with happily ever afters and talk about her family and Jesus.
