3 Questions Thursday with Lenora Worth

lenora-worth-picHappy Thursday! And no, you’re not seeing a typo. We’ve had  so many good books we’ve wanted to share in October that we added an extra day.

It’s my pleasure to welcome author of more than 45 books, Lenora Worth, to the Inspired Prompt. Good morning, Lenora.

Now Lenora, here’s your first question:

Can you describe yourself in three words?

LenoraTolerant, loyal, and a wicked sense of humor

Interesting mix of characteristics. 🙂 Next question,

Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?

Lenora:  Ireland. I’ve always been drawn there and have it on my bucket list to visit one day. I think I could live there and be perfectly content

What a great place for a writer.  Question #3:

If someone made a movie of your life, what wouldperson-731144__340 be the theme song?

Lenora:  Oh, that’s a good one. So many songs come to mind but one of my favorite songs is “The Long and Winding Road” by the Beatles. I think because we are all trying to find our way home again.

A great song and thoughtful response. Thank you, Lenora, for taking time to answer our three questions.

Undercover Memories

Her most important mission…

and she can’t remember what it is.

After amnesia strands private investigator Emma Langston in Dallas, only Detective Ryder Palladin can stop the men trying to kill her. But protective custody on Ryder’s family ranch has its own risks, like falling for the handsome cowboy. Before she can untangle her feelings for Ryder, Emma must recover her memory…because she’s sure someone’s life depends on it, even if she can’t remember whose.

If someone made a movie of your life, what would be the theme song?

3 Questions Wednesday with Ellie Gustafson

Image result for Eleanor GustafsonHappy Wednesday! Today the Inspired Prompt welcomes author, Ellie Gustafson . We’re so happy you could join us. First question:

Can you describe yourself in three words?

Ellie:  I would say, Lover of God.

Love your answer! Now about travel…

Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?

Ellie:  My heart is drawn to Scotland, and even though I’ve been there multiple times, I’d go again in a heartbeat. Grazing sheep, lochs, the Highlands, the isles, and even remote spittals*—all captured my heart. I met dear friends there—Brian and Isabel—also lovers of God. On my trip, I would simply follow them around to listen and drink in the high-powered nutrition of their spiritual relationship with people and with God. How could I record such an experience? Only a few people are sufficiently gifted for such writings, and I’m not one of them. I could prick a vein and write in blood, but even that would be a weak portrayal.

* Spittal—a house or place of refuge for the sick, especially one for patients with contagious diseases; or a shelter built along roads in 16th and 17th century Scotland as a haven from wolf attacks

Very interesting. 🙂 Last question…

If someone made a movie of your life, what would be the theme song?

Ellie:  My theme would be, “Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven,” based on Psalm 103. It speaks my heart. Having written a novel on the life of King David (The Stones), I identify with his passionate love for the Lord.

Praise, my soul, the King of Heaven;
To His feet thy tribute bring.
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
Who like we His praise should sing
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Praise the everlasting King.

Praise Him for His grace and favor
To our fathers in distress.
Praise Him still the same forever,
Slow to chide, and swift to bless
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Glorious in His faithfulness.

Fatherlike He tends and spares us;
Well our feeble frame He knows.
In His hands He gently bears us,
Rescues us from all our foes.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Widely as His mercy flows.

Angels, in the height adore Him
Ye behold Him face to face;
Sun and moon, bow down before Him,
Dwellers all in time and space
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Praise with us the God of grace.

Me ‘n David—that’s our song!

Great choice.  Thanks so much for dropping by!

Ellie would love to give away a copy of An Unspeakable Glory, reader’s choice of format. (Print, USA only) Please leave a comment to be entered.


 An Unpresentable Glory

A noted gardener from snobbish Westchester County in New York, finds a stranger, obviously ill, sprawled near her delphiniums. She takes him into her house and cares for him an entire week and only later learns who he really is. An investigative reporter uncovers the secret week, and both Linda and her guest become a spectacle in the eyes of the world.


Image result for Eleanor GustafsonEllie Gustafson began thinking up stories at a young age but didn’t write anything down until much later. After graduating from Wheaton College in Illinois, she jumped into church life as a minister’s wife, teacher, musician, newsletter editor (Asaph by name), and encourager. Additional experiences include gardening, house construction, tree farming, and parenting—all of which helped bring color and humor to her fiction. One of her major writing goals has been to make scriptural principles understandable and relevant for today’s readers through the undeniable power of story.
