Welcome, Molly Noble Bull, to 3 Questions Wednesday!
(1) What is your favorite book?
Molly: Besides the Bible, I would have to say that Little Women is my favorite. I read it for the first time when I was about twelve years old, and it changed my life. I cried when Beth died, and that surprised me. I’d never cried because of what happened to a character in a book previously. I learned from Little Women too—learned that books can create emotion and make one care what happened to a character in a book. Perhaps the fact that I read Little Women at an important time in my life was also part of the reason that later, I became a novelist.
(2) If you could walk into any book, what literary character would you be?
Molly: I love the world of Jane Austen. I like the characters in her books, the country where these characters lived and the romantic tone of the Regency era. Jane’s novels caused me to want to read other books set in the Regency period by other authors. So what character would I be? Elizabeth Bennett. However, I would give my heart to Mr. Darcy much sooner than she did.
(3) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Molly: I would go to the Holy Land, Israel. To walk where Jesus walked would be wonderful. The good news is that one day I will not only walk where Jesus walked, I will see Jesus face-to-face in Jerusalem during the 1000 years—the seventh day. And there is no other place on earth that I would rather be.
Thank you, Molly, for taking part in 3 Questions Wednesday. Molly is giving away 10 e-book copies of Gatehaven, her Gothic historical with a strong Christian message. Leave a comment for a chance to win!
Molly Noble Bull was born in Kingsville, Texas, home of the famous King Ranch, where she and her husband live today. Both her father and her maternal grandfather were ranch mangers (real Texas cowboys) and she lived on a sixty thousand acre Texas cattle ranch for part of her growing up years. Molly and Charlie Bull have never been married to anyone but each other, and they have three grown sons and six grandchildren. All three of their sons are involved in ranching in Texas today.
Molly has published with Zondervan, Love Inspired and Tsaba House, and so far, West Bow Press published her only non-fiction book. Though Tsaba House is no longer in business, they published Sanctuary, and Sanctuary, a long Christian historical sent in France and England, won the 2008 Gayle Wilson Award in the inspirational category and also tied for first place in a second national contest for published authors that year.
Gatehaven, Molly’s Gothic historical with a strong Christian message, won the Grand prize in the 2013 Creation House Fiction Writing Contest as a manuscript, and it was published in trade paperback and as an e-book in March 2014. Since then, Molly sold a Christian western romance to Elk Lake Press, and When the Cowboy Rides Away will be published in 2015.
