The Rancher's Reunion Interview


How exciting to have Will Sullivan the hero from The Rancher’s Reunion, by Tina Radcliffe, a January 2011 release from Love Inspired Romance.

1. Will, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

Interesting? I’m not exactly sure there’s anything about me that’s all that interesting. I run Sullivan Ranch, which is now online at http://www.thesullivanranch.com/
and this is our first year doing business as sort of a Christian dude ranch with KidCare.

2. What do you do for fun?
Mostly give Ryan Jones a hard time. I’ve been known to ride the roller coaster at Frontier City, in OKC with Annie Harris. Oh, and I’m partial to eating Killer Oatmeal cookies.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it?
I’d like to skip this question because it’s sure to get me in trouble and to tell you the truth I’ve stepped in so many cow pies lately I’m pretty much a cow pie magnet.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?
A life without Annie.

5. What do you want out of life?
I want Sullivan Ranch to prosper, Annie Harris by my side, Rose O’Shea in the kitchen and good friends on the front porch sharing lemonade.

6. What is the most important thing to you?
Family. Family is everything and it doesn’t matter if it’s your biological family or the rag-tag family the good Lord put in your life. Family comes first.

7. Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book?
Does the tractor manual count?

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Maybe I’d be a little less controlling and stubborn. Maybe.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?
A horse is a cowboy’s best friend and Okie is my horse.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

Why would I want to do that? I can’t see the past as a way to the future. I concentrate on today and turning things over to God, day by day, moment by moment.

  12. OMG!

    What happened to this site?

    I had to stop reading it because the white type on the black background gave me headaches.

    This new design is great!

  13. Hi Tina:

    You know, of the two, Annie has led the far more interesting life. You just have to interview Annie. I want to know about her near death experience. I want to know about her training to go to Africa and how much of the local language she learned.

    I’m also interested in local folklore where she worked. And, off the record, I’d like to know how serious she really was about her doctor friend in Africa.

    Also, something that is important to me: would Annie object to Will putting a grass strip runway on the farm and learning how to fly. He could be a good “Angle of Mercy” with missionary flights.

    Will is OK but he’s just a guy. Annie is the fascinating personality.

  14. Vince,

    Great idea on the airstrip. Will would be a great pilot.

    Okay, who told you about that young doctor in Africa?

  15. Will, I enjoyed reading a bit about your life. Tell Tina to let you talk more. She likes to hog the mic, you know! lol

  16. Dh likes Country and Farm & Ranch Magazine, and Progressive Farmer, and things like Farmer's Journals, but yeah, tractor manuals are probably the biggest fun they have.

    I mean you don't have to read a manual to operate a horse.

    lol

  17. Good point, Pammers.

    Unless you're a writer. We read manuals for everything. Or youtube.com
