I've decided you can tell a lot about people by the way they write, both within in the pages of a book and via email across oceans! Sharon Hinck's compassion, deep faith and joyful heart spill over in to her novels, emails and newsletters.
Interviewing Sharon was loads of fun so read below to discover more about her career aspirations as a child, her favourite ice cream flavour and the bravest thing she has ever done!
Sharon also shares about her latest books, Symphony of Secrets from Bethany House and The Restorer's Journey from NavPress. Both books are available now!
If you could have chosen your own name , what would it be?
Your first pet’s name?
Did you have a special toy that went everywhere with you when you were young? Please describe.
When I was young, I was a bookworm, and usually had a book with me everywhere I went.
Rel: A woman after my own heart!!!
If you could be an animal for one day, what would you be and why?
My hubby and I visited this statue of Joan when we were overseas - does that count?!
If you were stranded on a desert island what one object would you want with you? (Besides your Bible of course)
My husband. Wait. Can he count as an object? If not, I’d want a nice cozy bed. I’ve watched Survivor. I don’t think I’d like sleeping in caves or on bug-infested bamboo platform.
If you could only have one favourite food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Mashed potatoes and gravy
What's your favourite ice cream flavour?
Cinnamon ice cream is great with apple pie, but Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia (with wonderful dark chocolate chunks) is another favorite. Rel, you’re making me hungry. I’ll need to stop answering questions and go get a snack.
You Americans sure have some interesting flavours!
My folks just returned from a holiday in New Zealand, pictured here! It is a beautiful country :)
What's your favourite book?
What part of your daily routine do you enjoy most?
My early morning cup of tea. Chatting with my husband at the end of the day. Taking walks, especially when I can talk one of the kids into coming with me. Family dinner – when we all manage to be there at the same time. My quiet time. My writing time. Did you mean I had to pick only ONE part of my daily routine that I enjoy most? LOL!
What's your favourite movie?
American in Paris. I love musicals, and Gene Kelly is a favorite.
Where's the most interesting place you have been?
Great advice. We had Ecclesiates 4:12 embossed on our wedding invitations :)
Loved this story, Shazza!
Yep...you did achieve that and more :) Amazing and powerful reading!
Hoping and praying...... :)
Thanks so much Sharon - it has been both a pleasure and a privilege :)
