Tonight, author Susan J. Reinhardt is featured on my blog. My comments are in italics. Thanks Susan for taking the time to answer these questions.
- If you could travel back in time to be a witness to any event in history, what event would you choose, and why?
I’d choose the moment when Mary encountered Jesus after His resurrection near the garden tomb. One can only imagine her expression when her grief turned to joy.
- Name one time period in history you would not want to be alive during. Why?
The Dark Ages. It was a time of great persecution, and the Word of God wasn’t accessible to the general population.
I’ve always been fascinated by the dark ages, especially after the seemingly enlightened period of the Roman empire.
- If you could go back in time and do anything different in your writing career or journey, what would you do and why?
I would have learned more about the publishing industry and avoided some embarrassing mistakes. After my first manuscript was finished (or so I thought), I brought the whole thing to a writers conference and presented it to an editor. Although kind, he sent me packing with instructions to: 1) Learn how to write fiction, and 2) Produce a manuscript of 80-100,000 words. Ouch!
All writers have been there, I believe.
4. When you think of time travel, what is your favorite book, movie, or TV show on the subject?
I have something in mind, but unfortunately can’t recall the title or author of the book. It was about a guy, who discovers that a certain spot in NY would send him back many years. He meets a lovely young woman and must decide whether he will stay in the past or remain in his own time period.
Hmm, is it SOMEWHERE IN TIME, a movie with Christopher Reeves?
5. If you had a chance to relive your life and do something different or many things different, what would you do and why? (can be lighthearted or serious?)
This actually happened to me! As a young person, I considered going away to Bible School. The desire was there, but fear kept me from pursuing that path. I was able to do this twice – the first time as a night student. After two years, I graduated.
Many years later, I had the opportunity to spend a year at another Bible college. During that time, my late husband and I dated and married. It radically changed the course of my life, and I’m so glad I didn’t wimp out.
