My favorite types of books are ones signed by the author. Call me cheesy, but the signed copies I do own have a special place on my bookshelf. And I count myself lucky to have one of Mona Hodgson’s signed, tucked away in my bookshelf!
So excited she’s on the blog today and be sure to enter to win!
Married forty-one years to her leading man, Mona from Arizona lives in the Southwest where trees have arms instead of branches and salsa is a staple. When Mona Hodgson isn’t writing or speaking, she’s playing Wii games with her Arizona grandson, spending time with her mom, picnicking, texting her sisters, or chatting on Skype with her grandchildren in Africa.
Hodgson is the author of nearly 40 books, historical novels for adults and children’s books, including her popular Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek Series, The Quilted Heart novellas, and upcoming Hearts Seeking Home Series. Her children’s books include bestseller, Bedtime in the Southwest, six desert and princess Zonderkidz I Can Read books, Real Girls of the Bible: A 31-Day Devotional, and her six I Wonder books. Mona’s writing credits also include several hundred articles, poems and short stories, which have appeared in 50 different publications. Mona is a speaker for women’s groups, Christian women’s retreats, book clubs and reading groups, schools, and conferences for writers and librarians.
1. What is something about your life right now that you would never imagined 5 years ago?
Inheriting three more grandchildren through a daughter’s wedding.
2. What is one thing that you would go back and do differently if you could?
I wouldn’t have let the doctor induce my labor and rush into a C-Section for the birth of my firstborn daughter.
3. What is one of the happiest moments of your life?
My one-year wedding anniversary.
4. What is one thing you want the next generation to know?
Kindred spirit friends are few and far between, and oh so valuable.
Thank you so much Mona!! And because my brain is daft on many occasions, I own two copies of Twice a Bride: A Novel (The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek). If you’re wondering how this happened, I have no clue. But there’s two just hanging out on my bookshelf. So I need to give one away! I don’t want to be nominated for Hoarders or anything you know? (In case you think this was a one time occurrence, nope. I can already think of another book where I own two copies).
