Bonjour, Friends! Welcome back to the Video Café. This week, we chat with award-winning author Melanie Dobson for her very first time with us! (And stick around to the end of the interview for our usual #Giveaeay… Happy reading!)
If you’re new to the Video Café, Click HERE to see what it’s all about. But if you’ve been here before, you know how it works. So let’s grab a cuppa and spend some time with Melanie…
BONJOUR — and welcome to the Café, Melanie! Thanks for spending your morning coffee break with us today. So — where’s your cafe spot and what are you drinking?
We must be writing sisters, because I also move around to write in many different places. Sure wish we lived closer so we could sit in a coffee shop together! 😉
Another thing many of us probably do is meet at coffee shops to have some fellowship time with our sisters in the Lord. What scripture can you share with us that has been a blessing to your heart as a writer?
What a beautiful reminder of God’s promises to us. And we know you write powerful stories of faith in your novels. We know you have a new book out – Shadows of Ladenbrooke Manor – and we’re so excited to hear about it. Can you tell us more?
My Europe-loving heart is just beating wildly at the thought of traveling to England with you in this latest novel. Can you tell us about your research trips? (We will try to contain the shrieks of delight. We promise….)
This is INCREDIBLE! I was jaw-dropped listening to you describe your tour for the day. Must… Go… To… England for next book trip! Ha ha ha!
Thanks so much for spending your morning coffee break with us, Melanie. It’s been a delight. And next research trip — can we please go with you? Blessings, friend! You’re welcome back any time. 😉
