Today we welcome our own Crew Member, Allie Owens Crockett, to 3 Questions Wednesday.
(1) What is your favorite book? [Bible excluded]
Allie: I love, love, love Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. I began reading it about the same time I took on the challenege of writing my first novel. None but Rivers could paint the splendor of redemption the way she did, in the retelling of Hosea and Gomer the prostitute. Unless of course, I mention Les Miserables, but alas, I have never read the book.
(2) If you could walk into any book, what literary character would you want to be?
Allie: Do comics count? If so, I have an entirely different answer for you. Since I’m pretty sure they don’t, I’m going to say – Susan Pevensie, the eldest sister of the children from the Chronicles of Narnia. I feel like I may relate to her because I am also an older sibling. She thinks very logically and responsibly. Also, Prince Caspian totally digs her, and why not? She’s a beast with a bow.
(3) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Allie: I’ve always wanted to go to Ireland. First of all – the accents. Of course! Second, for the music. Third, for the history and rugged, beautiful scenery. I want to lay my eyes on all that green! Last, I’d like to go just so I can check it off my list and say I’ve been.
Thanks, Allie, for dropping by!

Being raised on the outskirts of horse country; this offered a wealth of inspiration to an imaginative young girl. Allie often pretended to be both the author and illustrator of her earliest works.
