Thank you, Kevin McAteer, for inviting me on this Blog Tour. Kevin is the author of Daddy Can You Make Me Pancakes?, the story of how Kevin and his three children survived the cancer diagnosis and death of their wife and mother. He imparts advice on the Life Lessons that he learned during this traumatic time, and also shows how he found the resilience to find love again.
What am I working on?
My editor, Andrea Merrell, and I are editing, polishing and revising my book before publication in October of 2014. Even the book’s title is not set in stone. Some possibilities are: At The Bridge, The Bridge to Nowhere, and Agnes Hopper’s Bridge to Retirement.
How does my work differ from others of its genre?
My heroine, Agnes, is a feisty seventy-year-old and a widow. She becomes the voice for her new friends in a small-town retirement home.
Why do I write what I do?
I have always enjoyed older people and have volunteered in assisted-living homes for many years. I have listened to seniors as they shared their hopes, their fears and concerns, and their wisdom. I feel honored to speak for them.
How does my writing process work?
Usually with a particular character, or characters, who face a major crisis and have to take action.
Next stop on the World Blog Tour?
I would like to introduce the three authors I invited on the World Book Blog Tour. They will each be posting on their blogs next Monday, July 14, 2014.
