ElizabethMaddreyHeadshotToday we welcome Elizabeth Maddrey, avid reader and author, to 3 Questions Wednesday.


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

Elizabeth: This is like trying to choose a favorite child. Maybe it’s cheating a little, but I think I’ll go with The Deed of Paskinarrion by Elizabeth Moon. It’s 3 books bound together as one that I tend to re-read every year. It’s a great epic fantasy – struggle between light and dark and though it wasn’t intended to be a Christian novel, it has great Christian themes/overtones.

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

Elizabeth: Maybe Lucy in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I’d love to ride piggy back on Aslan after he’s resurrected.

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

Elizabeth: New Zealand. Not just because I love the Lord of the Rings (though I do) – but just because all the pictures I’ve seen are so lovely.
