At any rate, I now have a book of hers, Winter Garden, on hold at the library. (Good thing because I only have a stack of 52 books to read!) As I was reading through her website, and yes, having a few envious moments (okay, several envious moments) I found this lovely quote in which Kristin answers the question, “Why do you write?”
Quite simply, I write because it frees something in me. It’s the greatest job in the world. It allows me to be the wife/mother/friend I want to be, with plenty of time for the people I care about, while still giving me something that’s mine, something that defines me as an individual.
That. Says. It. All. Okay, I’m off to write 18 novels now. (Yes, she’s written 18 novels!)
Have you read any books by Kristin? If yes, which ones and what is your favorite? And I’m even more curious about your answer to this question: why do you write?
