3 Questions Wednesday with Ginny Cruz

ginnyGood morning! It is my pleasure to welcome award winning author Ginny Cruz to the Inspired Prompt.

Good morning, Ginny.  Let’s get started!

Who is your favorite author?

Ginny: My favorite author is Jean Auel. I’ve read many authors and this is a hard question to answer; however, I think it’s Jean. When I discovered her, she had just completed Clan of the Cave Bear, the first book in her Earth’s Children series. It was agony waiting the years between each book, but well worth the wait.

I love finding a new favorite to add to my old favorites! 

If you could write about anyone or anything, fiction or nonfiction, who or what would you write about?

Ginny:  Ever since childhood, I’ve wanted to take a months-long cross-country trip and write about it. As a child, I devoured the Little House on the Prairie books and dreamed of being Laura, riding in the covered wagon across the plains. As an adult, I read and reread, Peter Jenkins’ book, A Walk Across America. Maybe it’s just my wanderlust leading me to see what’s on the other side of the hill.

I love this idea!

If you could spend time with a character from your book or another book who would it be? And what would you do during the day?

Ginny:  Again, I think I’d climb in the back of that covered wagon with Laura Ingalls and head west. We’d smell the grass lands and hear the mourning doves. Ma would cook up biscuits and bacon on the campfire and Pa would play his fiddle before bed. And, somewhere down the trail, we’d find a perfect place to build a cabin.

Mud Holes and Magnolias

unnamedMama’s family loved telling stories, especially on each other. As a child, I heard Mama and her family tell these old tales over and over. As a result, they’ve never left me. Over the years, as life dealt trials and difficulties, I’ve recalled these stories. And there, tucked away in the recesses of my memory, God showed me some lessons on faith. In this book, I’ve shared those lessons with you.

  1. Great interview, Ginny. Wouldn’t it be something to slip back in time and spend a few days with Laura Ingalls? I imagine I would return with a greater appreciation for how they lived.
