Thursday Sisterhood with Lacy Williams


Family Status: married; three kids under age 5! 

What Is Your Favorite Beverage: chocolate milkshake. Little known tidbit: I don't like any kind of carbonated beverage. I don't like the taste of the carbonation and never have!

What Is Your Favorite Food: I love a good steak, also love seafood and Italian and Mexican... yeah, I love to eat. It's not as much fun now that I've got three kids behind me and the metabolism I had in my twenties is loooong gone!

What Is Your Favorite Thing to do During Free Time: Read. I have so little free time right now between the kids and writing that I haven't been reading as much as I want to. 

Who Has Been the Most Influential Person in Your Life: Probably my dad. He's been the most courageous example and I'm so proud of him!

First Book You Fell in Love With: Anne of Green Gables. I read it when I was about 10 and had the chicken pox. I had a three-book omnibus (thank you, Grandma!) and read through the whole thing while stuck in bed and itchy.

A Book You Wish You’d Written: I have a lot still percolating. So many ideas and so little time... The main one I want to write is a teenage cowboy romance (young adult). Rodeo, baby!

First Book Published: Marrying Miss Marshal, August 2011. A fun story about a woman marshal in the Wild West.

Most Recent Book: Kissed by a Cowboy, self-published in the Inspy Kisses "First Kisses" collection.

Out Next: The Wrangler's Inconvenient Wife (August 2014)

How Many Have You Written: 10+. Enough that I have to sit down and count them. :) 

What Do You Know Now That You Wish You’d Known Then: That writing is a really hard career to do part-time. With the kiddos, part-time is about all I can give to it, and there is so much that never gets done... marketing, social media, growing a platform... but at least I get the stories out. :)

What is Your Favorite Bible Story: Ruth and Boaz.

What is Your Favorite Bible Verse: Psalm 27:14

What is Your Favorite Hymn: I love "Blessed Be Your Name". It's newer and contemporary but I love the message. 

What is an Ongoing Prayer Request You Have: My sister, who deals with a chronic illness.

Lacy, It's been so cool to watch your career and family grow. I remember when you first came to the WIN meetings, so wide-eyed and eager to learn about writing. I'm glad I can say I knew you when...
And I LOVE your books. Keep them coming!
