Good morning! Welcome to another edition of 3 Questions Wednesday. This morning we’re talking with our very own Fay Lamb.
Good morning, Fay. Can you describe yourself in three words?
Down-right crazy (is it one or two words if you hyphenate?) Just in case, Down-right certifiably crazy.
LOL. I love your sense of humor, Fay. Next question . . .
Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?
Without a second thought it would be to Teahupoo, Tahiti. I have a story that has been living in my brain for many years since I read James A. Michener’s The Drifters about a group of teens who were facing the troubles of their times: the Vietnam War, the sexual revolution, drugs, etc. My story involves professional surfing and five individuals who are ten years past their glory. Each have gone his or her own way, and one of the friends has allegedly perished in the surf. The survivors of their wild lifestyle are coming together to support a momentous occasion. The place where they will reunite is Teahupoo at the Billabong Pro, and there are lots of surprises and a mysterious stranger afoot. Just to give you a hint of the storyline, the title is Resurrection.
I plan to write this story in a way that it will attract a very unreached people group in our society: surfers, and I will be donating books and all of my proceeds to Christian Surfers International.
If someone’s going to pay my way, they need to hurry because the Billabong Pro is August 10 through August 21, 2018 and as of the time of this interview, the countdown was: 114 days, 8 hours, 9 minutes, and 36 seconds from starting.
Hehe. Reader, if you want to see some amazing footage on Teahupo’o click the link. Last question . . .
If someone made a movie of your life, what would be the theme song?
So many crazy things happen in my life, and people sometimes believe I make them up. So, my obvious song has to be That’s My Story, and I’m Stickin’ to It by Jimmy Buffett.
Sounds like a plan, Fay! Thanks for joining us for 3 Questions Wednesday.
