  3. What an intriguing book…and an equally intriguing interview! Melodye, you did a great job asking creative questions, and I loved Russ’s answers, especially where he states he’s more of the Emily Dickinson school of faith than the Billy Graham school of faith. I also loved what he mentioned about his grandmother. We know many grandmothers love(d) to cook, but he states that his grandmother loved to watch people eat. Made me want to know his grandmother!

    A great, honest interview–can’t wait to pick up this book and delve into the lives of these complicated characters.

    • I was drawn to those answers, too, Cathy! How interesting, that we picked up on the same things…although, not surprising. From that short description, I can see that my Nana was the English counterpart to his Southern grandmother.

      I’ll bring DAYS OF LITTLE TEXAS to our get-together on Sunday…a teaser, if you will. I’ll bet you’ll be tempted to run over to B&N to get your own copy. πŸ™‚

  4. I, too, love his answer about Emily Dickinson. And the question you asked about the gathering with Little Texas had to be my favourite, because I could picture his answer in my mind so vividly.

    Tons of personality bursting forth in this interview – a round of applause for both of you!

    • Thanks, Tori! I love that Russ allowed me to spotlight his writing talents.

      You know me…questions, always questions. I’m grateful that he honored our interview with such thoughtful responses.
