Interviewing a WWII Vet – Fun Features

This is an exciting day! I had lunch with a 90 year old gentleman who served in WW2 and became a prisoner of war. This guy was a riot. So witty and sharp as a tack. At lunch he had two straight up martinis (with a bonus that was bigger than the first pour) so it was the equivalent of four martinis and yet he was fine – you would have had to scrape me off the floor.

I am currently working on a story that takes place during WW2, so I was thrilled to have this opportunity.
Loving this book but got a long way to go. My goal is to have it finished by end of April. Then it goes to the editor…and all that other stuff. I like setting goals, it keeps me on track.

Anybody else here set goals? Do you stick to them?

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
