Thank you so much for joining us. I know we have a few things to talk about today. The main thing is your newest release Seeking Refuge, along with your part in the Amish Christmas Miracles Collection.

I don’t know about you, but I’m really excited about that collection too. And we’ll talk a little bit about that in a minute, but before we dig into your projects, our listeners love to find out just a little bit about their favorite author’s writing career. To start with, out of those 80 books, which one do you think is your favorite?

Lenora: Well, I have a lot of favorites, but, as far as my Amish books, my very first Amish book is my favorite. 

Tracy: Below are just a few of the questions we asked Lenora. Her answers were insightful and interesting. Be sure to listen to the complete podcast to get an inside look at Lenora Worth and her writing career.

Tracy: You painted a beautiful picture. I love it when you can just envision every aspect of what’s going on in this scene, and you did a great job. Tell us what’s next for, for Lenora.

Tracy: Thank you so much for joining us. I do like to finish up on a fun note, and we’re going to play a speed round.

Are you a cake or an ice cream girl?

If you could be a tree, what would you be and why?

What was the very last thing you read?

And the last question, what’s for supper?

Well, Lenora, I want to thank you so much for spending time with us this week. And I look forward to reading your latest release as well as your upcoming projects.
