2) Who's your one biggest fan/supporter of your writing?

I like to write books set in the 1800’s, but I also write contemporary stories.

Another blogger asked me that same question a few months ago and it had some surprising results. I said I would like to meet Dr. and Mrs. James Dobson, because I admire them so much, and they have made a huge impact on our family. Dr. Dobson has someone who keeps an eye on the Internet for any time his name is mentioned. They forwarded my comment, and Dr. Dobson wrote back and invited me to come to Colorado to have lunch with him. We haven’t worked out a date yet, but I was excited to receive his message and look forward to meeting him sometime soon.Wow! That is really exciting. Dr. Dobson has touched so many lives. You'll have to come back and let us know how that lunch went! Thanks for being on my blog, Carrie.
