Interview with Meghan M. Gorecki1:00 AM
Meghan: Thank you so much for having me here, Sarah. So blessed by your friendship. *smile*
Sarah: In one paragraph, who is Meghan Goreki?
Meghan: I am a twenty-something writer who struggles to identify herself as such but most importantly I am a daughter of the Most High Lord, saved by grace. I happily live at home with my parents, three younger siblings and two cats. When I'm not writing historical fiction, I blog, crochet, play piano and can likely be found running back and forth to church for one reason or another. I also work part time as a medical receptionist.
Sarah: What inspired God's Will?
Meghan: I began this book in late spring, 2007. It started with a random dream of seeing this girl/young woman being caught in the woods during a thunderstorm before a dead tree limb fell, pinning her legs to the ground and paralyzing her. With that and my typewriter, off I wrote. Over the seven years since--two rewrites and countless edits--events and struggles in my own life inspired much in God's Will, quite unintentionally.
Sarah: What is your favorite quote from the book?
Meghan: I don't have just one. But this ranks up in my top ten favorite quotes:
"Kathy bit back a sigh as that tiny flicker of hope waned. Her family would never be the way it once was--whole, happy and prosperous. But what did she place her hope in?"
Sarah: What did you learn in the process of getting this book ready for publication?
Meghan: Oh, so much. Everything from residual heart-struggles I had in letting this book go, and letting God. Edits are humbling even when they come from one of the dearest friends. Above all I learned--this book is finally finished, but it's writer is still very much a work in progress.
Sarah: Do you have more books in the works?
Meghan: I do. *smile* I have a six book Civil War standalone series, The Keystone Legacy Series that I am incredibly excited about. The first two books are set in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania and follow the same two families. Those are the ones I'm currently working on: Amongst the Roses and A Rose Long Awaited.
Sarah: Any final thoughts?
Meghan: I have got to say how blessed I am by wonderful friends like you, Sarah, also in this writer-journey, to walk alongside. The response to God's Will has truly been beyond my wildest imagination, and I am just so grateful to God for everything. Thank you for having me here, Sarah!
