Part 2 of my interview with author Brenda Vicars as I ask her the hard hitting questions, like what would you do if you won the lottery. Even then she continues to out do herself with her thoughtful, honest answers. You can grab your copy of Polarity in Motion this week for an absolute steal!! It’s on sale until June 18th on Kindle for $.99cents!!
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
Pay off my and my children’s mortgages! Boring, I know.
When did you realize that you wanted to be a writer professionally?
I was six. I wrote my first poem: “My Little Sister Vicki Is Very, Very Tricky.” Something
about that experience ignited a spark that still glows.
If you could only pick two people, living or dead, famous or not, to read your book,
who would they be and why?
My mother, Mary Frances Baker. She died twenty years ago—before I was even
attempting to get published. She’s one of the greatest blessings of my life—loving,
resourceful, and talented. And, even though she had to drop out of school in the sixth
grade, she loved books. The line from Polarity in Motion, “I love you a bushel and a
peck and a hug around the neck,” is something my mother used to say. I’d love for her
to read my book and see her line.
Oprah Winfrey—My book is what it is because of Oprah. If you watch Super Soul
Sunday, you can open almost any page of Polarity in Motion and see Oprah’s
influence—especially in the seven-line poem that Polarity works on throughout the
story. I’d love to know whether Oprah feels the story authentically portrays the journey.
toward seeing our own way of seeing.
