Interview with ‘The Widow’s Captive’ author, Lucy Nel


What are some of your favorite books and/or authors?

Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. And everything Tamera Alexander and Karen Witemeyer writes.

Do you ever read outside of your genre?

I do, but not as often as I’d like to. I am a romantic at heart, so I prefer a story with a strong romantic theme. 🙂

Do you enjoy any hobbies?

I love being creative. Scrap booking. Making cards. Drawing. 

What’s your favorite drink?

Coffee – though sometimes I like to think of it as survival fluid. Hehehe.

Do you have any pets?

Three adorable Pugs. They shed. They snore, but I love them to pieces!

If you could kiss a prince, which prince would you pick?

Does a Disney Prince count? Because then it’s Eugene Fitzherbert. 😉

I’ve heard things about a certain ‘special’ Barbie doll of your childhood. Care to reveal any more?

Aaaahhh Raphael *Sigh*… My Ken doll *Wink*. I think I do add a little of him whenever I create a hero. That is all I’m sharing. 

And finally, what’s a piece of writing advice you’d like to give a newbie?

Jane Yolen’s quote sums it up nicely. 

Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it is only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up.

Thanks for your time, Lucy, and congratulations on your new release!
