Get to know Beth...

Share one pet peeve you have. 
My pet peeve reveals itself when I drive: inconsiderate drivers frustrate me. I’m one of those people who talk to other drivers. “Fine, come on over in my lane without using your blinker,” or “Get off my bumper, buddy!” I’m proud to say I’ve taught this “say it out loud” driving technique to my daughters.

What's your favorite chore? I like to clean out the fridge. Seek and destroy the old foodstuff. Wipe down the glass shelves. Reorganize everything, because I do have a system for where everything goes – and yes, my family ignores it.

What’s one thing you must have/do in the morning? 
Besides saying good morning to my husband? For the past year and a half, I’ve taken morning walks with my writing buddy, Mary Agius. She lives one street away from me. We walk 3-4 miles. Our walks are absolute necessities – mentally, physically and spiritually. We walk, talk, and pray together. And at the end of every walk, we say, “This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24)

The Convenient Bride: Join nine brides of convenience on their adventures in a variety of times and settings gone by—from a ranch in California…to the rugged mountains of Colorado…to a steamship on the Mississippi…to the dangerous excitement of the Oregon Trail…into high society of New York City. No matter the time or place, the convenient brides proceed with what must be done, taking nuptials out of necessity. . .and never dreaming that God might take their feeble attempts to secure their futures and turn them into true love stories for His glory.

What's one chore you hate doing? 
Just one? The chore I most loathe is mopping floors. I don’t mind sweeping floors, but I detest mopping them!

Which of your characters do you secretly have a crush on? 
This would be a toss-up between Teagan Donovan, my hero in Sioux Summer (found in the Oregon Trail Romance Collection) or Cullen McGuinness, my Irish hero in an unpublished work I’m still trying to place.

Would you rather go to the future or go to the past? 
The Past. I know what to expect there, since we can read about the times and events that happened. Thus, I can prepare myself for what it will be like.
