The last two questions in the interview are answered by the wife, and provide an opportunity for her to brag about her husband, and to share what she appreciates about him as he supports her career as an author. That was the special part. After Brad so graciously answered my questions, I told him with how important he is to me and how thankful I am that he supports what I do as an author. I was sure to give him specific examples of the things that I notice that he does for me. I know it isn’t easy for him when I’m traveling, researching, and writing for hours on end. His vocation and interests are important to me, too. So I’m glad for the opportunity to brag on him a little bit since his wife is such a “famous” author now. It’s amazing how many people believe that. But you know, it is just me, at home, clicking away on my keyboard with a husband who gets such a kick out of the fact that his beloved is seeing her dreams come true.
I hope you’ll join me at Writing to Distraction http://writingtodistraction.blogspot.com on Fridays to see what these fabulous husbands have to say.
