Happy Wednesday! Today the Inspired Prompt welcomes author, Sue Davis Potts. We’re so happy you could join us. First question:
Who is your favorite author?
Sue: I am a former preschool teacher and I love to write for children, so I love picture book authors. When I was teaching, I enjoyed Mercer Mayer’s “Little Critter” books. He captures the way children think and sound.
Now my favorite picture book author is my friend, Michelle Medlock Adams. She puts her heart into each book and in many of her books she shares Jesus in a language that kids can understand. She is also great with rhyme which makes reading her books so much fun.
I agree, Michelle is a great author. Next question…
If you could write about anyone or anything fiction/nonfiction who or what would you write about?
Sue: I am working on a couple of devotional books right now. One of them focuses on devotions for people that deal with fibromyalgia. I have fibromyalgia and the struggle is real. I would love to write something to encourage others that share some of the same struggles.
That is a much needed devotional. Last question:
If you could spend time with a character from your book or another book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?
Sue: I have a fascination with Ruth in the Bible. I would love to sit down and interview her. I would ask her to tell me about her journey from Moab to Judah. I would also ask her to tell me her and Boaz’s love story and of course, I would have to ask what it was really like living with her mother-in-law.
Sounds like a fascinating day. Thanks so much for dropping by!
Sue will give away a print copy of her book, 101 Life Lessons from Uno. (US entries only) Leave a comment below to be entered in the drawing…
101 Life Lessons from Uno
Life is full of teachable moments. Meeting Uno was that kind of moment. Uno’s accident had left him with a disability. He was challenged but he was still present, still making his way in the world. He still had value and many lessons to teach those who would learn. Whether disabled or not, we all face struggles. It’s how we handle those struggles that matters. Uno healed and moved on. If a one- legged duck overcame so can you. Be encouraged by Uno’s one leg, one life, and many lessons.
