3 Questions Wednesday with Shelly Roark

Welcome to our latest edition of 3 Questions Wednesday, and say hello to Shelly Roark. Shelly is a senior copywriter for Focus on the Family and has released her debut children’s picture book.   Let’s get started!

First question:

Can you describe yourself in three words?

Shelly:  Giggly Chaotic Hugger.

Sounds like you’re a fun person. 🙂 Now here’s an interesting question—

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

Shelly:  Right now it would be New York City and the reason can be summed up in one word . . . CHRISTMAS! I would absolutely love to hang out in New York and enjoy the wonderful onslaught of sights and sounds of the holidays.

That would be my kinda trip too. Last question—

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

Shelly:  Hmmmmm. The Mission Impossible theme song. Not because my life is an impossible mission, but because I like to think of it as one exciting adventure after another. And, quite honestly, the music just makes me happy.

I like it!  Thanks, Shelly, for visiting us at 3 Questions Wednesday, and allowing our readers to know you better.
