I’m honored to have Laura Frantz as my guest today! She is such a warm, kind soul, and her writing is pretty fantastic too. 🙂 She’s preparing to go on a trip to Scotland, so I’m glad she made time in the midst of packing to be here.

Welcome, Laura! Let’s get to the questions, shall we?

Opener Question: What seven words best describe you?

Sensitive, compassionate, creative, driven, passionate, pensive, saved.

Either/Or Questions:

1) Right brained or Left brained?

Whichever side of the brain isn’t math related! 🙂 I tend to be in creative overdrive most of the time. I can’t imagine NOT thinking about writing. Editing is more math-related, or so I’ve heard, which may be one of the reasons I like it less than the joy of writing that first draft.

2) English gardens or Hills of Scotland?

The hills of Scotland, definitely. I’m headed to the Highlands soon and want to make every minute count! It’s a joy to look forward to visiting the very castle I write about in Love’s Reckoning.

3) Homemade lasagna or Chinese take-out?

Oh, I’m such a pasta lover but Chinese is fine, too. I love to cook! Two favorite dishes at our house are lasagna and kung pao chicken. We’re quite happy eating both. And who can resist take-out? I love NOT having to cook as much as I love cooking!

4) Diary of Anne Frank or Princess Diaries?

The Diary of Anne Frank. It’s a classic that shows what really matters in life. Anne had a beautiful, hopeful spirit in a very tragic time. I hope to meet her in heaven.

5) Stick to the basics or Frills and ruffles?

Frills and ruffles, please! I’m all girl and love dressing up though I must admit I’ve never even had a manicure. And I’m a mom to two boys, not a girl in sight! Maybe I’ll get that grand-girl someday to dress up!

6) Coffee or Tea?

There’s a time and a place for both! Coffee in the mornings and tea in the evenings with a good book by the fire are wonderful, one of my favorite things about fall and winter.

7) Better Homes and Gardens or ESPN Magazine?

Better Homes and Gardens. I just want to step inside those lovely pictures, build a new house, plan a garden… I never liked sports probably because I was never any good at it. But I really admire those who enjoy them and participate!

—–

Fun answers, Laura! I can picture you in the Scottish countryside — or in an English garden — sipping tea and writing to your heart’s content. Not sure how we could sneak any lasagna or kung pao chicken in there, but scones would be a fine replacement, don’t you think? 🙂

Thanks so much for being here today and letting us get to know you better!

Scottish Castles and English Gardens (Meet and Greet with Laura Frantz) | www.sarahforgrave.comLove’s Reckoning

On a bitter December day in 1785, Silas Ballantyne arrives at the door of master blacksmith Liege Lee in York, Pennsylvania. Just months from becoming a master blacksmith himself, Silas is determined to finish his apprenticeship and move west. But Liege soon discovers that Silas is a prodigious worker and craftsman and endeavors to keep him in York. Silas becomes interested in both of Liege’s daughters, the gentle and faith-filled Eden and the clever and high-spirited Elspeth. When he chooses one, will the other’s jealousy destroy their love?

In this sweeping family saga set in western Pennsylvania, one man’s choices in love and work, in friends and enemies, set the stage for generations to come. Love’s Reckoning is the first entry in The Ballantyne Legacy, a rich, multi-layered historical quartet from talented writer Laura Frantz, beginning in the late 1700s and following the Ballantyne family through the end of the Civil War.

Blog Readers: Let’s talk…What’s the biggest gardening or yard project you’ve taken on this year? Or how about an inside project? Any redecorating or remodeling?

    This book looks great! Laura is one of the authors on my to-read list–I’ve heard wonderful things about her books!

    Our house has been in a constant state of remodeling for…well let’s just say, too long. But I’m certain I’ll appreciate it even more when it’s finished. 🙂

      Heidi, Good morning! I’m a bit late here being on west coast time but am thrilled to see you and others:) So glad I’m on your to-read list. Thanks so much for your kind words about the book buzz.

      And I had to chuckle at your remodeling comment as our house, lived in now for 13 years, still has a couple of unfinished corners;) So I know about eternal remodels and good intentions. Guess it’s quite creative to live in a house that’s always in a state of change!

      Anyway, thanks so much for being here this blustery, grey morning!

    The biggest yard project I SHOULD be taking on is the leaf removal. But it’s like dusting….seems so pointless…

      Hi Bekah, Oh yes, those pesky leaves, now quite wet and not so colorful, at least here in the northwest woods! Happy fall to you! And thanks for being here:)

    Oh dear, I’ve not done a single yard project (my landlord does that) or indoor project, really. BUT I did help my dad on my parents’ acreage multiple times. I actually really like outdoor work…probably because I don’t have any of my own to do. 🙂

    Love this interview and I LOVE Laura Frantz books!

      Hi Melissa, Wish you were near enough to hug:) Thanks so much for your kind comments about my books. Love the thought of you reading them!

      Like you, I really like outdoor work though writing gets me off the hook! And I miss raking leaves, strangely enough – here there are so many Christmas trees, raking is kind of passe;)

    Love your books, Laura! I look forward to reading Love’s Reckoning.

    I’ve tried to take on this bare patch in my lawn. Grass just doesn’t want to grow in this one spot. I’ve tried everything from high grade seed to those green patches you lay down, even some sod. Nothing works.

      Hi Loree,
      So happy you’re here and want to read:) You’ve always been an encouragement and blessing to me.

      We have a couple of those grassless patches, too. Strange how stubborn they are – and how they can drive you crazy!

      Hope your fall is going well and you’re well out of the way of that storm we’re hearing about. Prayers with all on the east coast and southern states.

    One of my very favorite authors! Great interview.

    As for projects, it wasn’t big, but when I organized the laundry room complete with shoe rack (for outdoor shoes) and hanging rack (for drying delicates) it made me inordinately happy!

      Sarah! When I think of you now, I have this image of you in that sassy, colorful apron, lol:) Frying squirrel! But we won’t go down that road today…

      Thanks so much for being so gracious about my work. As for those projects of yours, I would be inordinately happy, too! My Randy, who never complains, recently passed my office door and said he hopes when this deadline passes, I will clean it up;) Trouble is, deadlines never pass! But I can’t wait to tackle that room next week when this next book is finally in…and be happy to do it at last.

      Happy Monday to you, my friend.

      Jessica, Love your garden thoughts. I had to give that up along with the publishing bit and am still sad about it! I just play at it now,, like you said so well, where I was totally immersed in it before. Thanks for the trip wishes. I’m packing and can’t wait:)

      Thanks so much for being here.

    Um yeah…black thumb here, so no gardening. But I did finally decorate our bedroom. It’s not super professional, but I like it. And I finally bought an oversized chair the nook in our room, and it serves perfectly as a writing and reading chair. Love it!

      Lindsay, I always smile BIG when I see you as I know you’re friends with dear Gabrielle:) Love the black thumb, lol. And ditto on the oversized chair! Those do make the best writing and reading places:) I love redoing rooms and bedrooms are the most fun, I think, as they’re our intimate, private spaces. We can go a little crazy there. I have floral wallpaper in an 19th-c. pattern on only one wall in our bedroom with a big window overlooking our garden. The rest of the room is painted ivory. Kind of odd that only one wall is papered – but somehow it works! At least for me:)

      Happy writing and reading to you!

    Yay, I was so excited to see Laura and Sarah together today! Laura is one of my very favorite authors (and people!) – please don’t enter me in the drawing for her book, as I’ve already devoured it. 🙂 And to anyone who has Laura on a to-be-read pile, pull her books up to the very top (or even put down the book you’re reading!) – her writing is amazing and you won’t regret it!

    My husband is a landscape designer and we recently bought a new home on the Mississippi, so he’s been busy with a LOT of projects, especially in our backyard so we can enjoy the river. In the winter he’s home full time, so we’ve had a lot of indoor projects, too. This winter we’re going to tackle the out-dated walk-out basement. It’ll be a big project, but I’m really looking forward to having more family space and a writing room all to myself!

      Gabrielle, OH YAY! You’re here:) It means all the more as I know you’re on deadline and super busy! Prayers with you all the way. It’s so exciting to watch your journey and anticipate all the good things to come. Publishing is quite an adventure. One editor told me when I started 5 yrs ago to “enjoy the learning experience.” I didn’t know what she meant back then but I sure do now. And I’m still learning, learning, learning…and trying to enjoy the bumps, too!

      I’d love to visit you on the Mississippi. I’ve become so attached to that river as I’m writing about it now. I can imagine how beautiful your place is with your husband doing what he does! Oh, that writing room to be sounds heavenly. I sense your excitement. Nothing like a creative space to nuture our stories and souls, so to speak. I hope you post pics when it’s done. You’re always so good at that:)

      Guess I’m writing a novella here and better get back to work! Hugs to you, my fine friend. Thanks so much for being here this morning.

    Enjoyed the quick back and forth dialog in this interview. Always fun to learn some new little tidbit about one of my favorite authors. I’m sitting here trying to NOT envy Laura’s trip to Scotland…too much!! My mother’s family “roots” are in Scotland. Please do not enter me in the drawing. I have already read “Love’s Reckoning” and have it on my “to be read again” shelf. Can’t wait for the sequel. A year goes much more slowly when you are waiting for sequels! Thank you for the time you gave to one of my all time favorite authors.

      Mary! Thrilled to see you – and to learn about your Scottish roots:) I just finished a post on Scotland that I had such fun doing, with pictures of where we’ll be going, so hope to get that up week after next before I leave. Hope you enjoy it. And I’m very thankful you’re ready for that sequel. I apologize for the delay – a year is really a long wait between books! I actually have Jack and Ellie’s story in my lap right now, about 6,000 words shorter than it was. Hate trimming but it’s good to tighten those scenes – just not the romantic ones, as my editor says:)

      Thanks so much for taking time here this morning. I imagine you’re getting winterized where you are as I remember talking to you about that last fall. My husband has even been talking about moving your way! I wouldn’t mind a bit:)

      Anyway, happy almost November to you, dear Mary. You’ve made my day!

      Susan, So good to see you here. I think we are kindred spirits regarding the creative process. I’m always a little amazed when writer friends tell me they like editing more – yikes! They are braver than I am. Nothing like the rush of getting those first scenes down on paper. Kind of like falling in love:)

    Hi everyone! I’m loving the conversation today. So many house and yard projects going on, I’m tired just thinking about it. 🙂 I have to admit I leave all the yard work to my hubby. He’s my hero! 🙂

    And Laura, I think I goofed and said you just got back from Scotland, when it sounds like you’re really preparing to leave soon. I hope you have a wonderful time! I can’t wait to see pictures.

      Hi Jill! I bet your house is beautiful and feels new after all that remodeling. My heart is with you about tackling that deck next. It’s my favorite place to write:) Only I’ve had to give that up till next summer now that monsoon season has arrived…

      I sure appreciate your encouragement, especially since you’re a contemp writer (if I’m remembering correctly) and yet you still make time for historicals! I need to be better about that myself. I tend to get stuck in my genre and can’t get out, lol. But you might well convert me:) Bless you for being here!

    As a single gal, I don’t take on big projects! My mom is the green thumb in our family, and always comes over in the spring to help me get my flower beds in order. I’m doing good to keep up with the weeding throughout the rest of the year!

      Love imagining your flower beds:) The mums lately in those rusts and golds for fall are so gorgeous I’m seeing at Costco and Walmart. Makes me want to dig in the dirt! Bless your Mom for helping – Moms have the magic touch:)

We have yet another thing in common. Randy’s mom has 5 boys (he’s #4) and she has mostly granddaughters while her sister had 4 girls and has all grandboys! It’s quite the joke in the family.

    Because of a health condition, I’ve had to cut back on my gardening. It hurts even to weed my flower beds, which I find rather annoying since I enjoy grubbing in the dirt! Laura’s new book sounds great; thanks for giving me a chance to win a copy of Love’s Reckoning.

    I’m thrilled about the Ballantyne Legacy and am eagerly awaiting the next book. I always love getting to know our Laura better…but I must say, I felt as though she answered exactly as I would have! So nice to have kindred spirits.

    I love to do interior decorating. This year was mostly for reorganizing and weeding out. My last at home son moved out and that created a spare room, now the guest room. He took our other son’s sectional from our living room so we were able to return our loveseat and tables that was stored in our bedroom to its proper room. Crazy, yes. Now we are adjusting to our empty nest and I’m hoping to spruce things up a bit soon.

      Anne, I’m slathering over those Scots pins right along with you:) I wish we were going together! Love that you’re lurking. I do that a lot, too. It’s always wonderful to see you here, there, or anywhere. I think you’re another twin pinner right along with Wendy and moi:)

    I enjoyed the interview! Fun questions.
    And I am currently trying to remodel a bit of everything inside the house. I have yet to know what it will look like, but it would probably be nice if I at least put some photos on the wall already.

      Adrienne, So good to see you here:) Your remodeling sounds great – and putting pics on the walls, one of my favorite things, sure gives it that homey finished feeling. I’d like to do a little remodeling here myself! Thx for being here and entering the drawing. Hope you’re having a blessed weekend!
