Interview with Dorothy Rice, author of I Asked My Father



Inside the Book:

Title: I Asked My Father 
Author: Dorothy Rice, R.N. 
Publisher: iUniverse 
Genre: Religion
  Format: Ebook

This is a small book of poetry. It was written while the author was close to death from Lupus. Why, then, does pain inspire, and inspiration produce fruits to uplift and comfort. God only knows. But there is knowing here and insights only the heart knows through suffering. If you are suffering, or know someone who is, you may find these poems a salve and solution to why good people have to suffer. For, as the author once said, "The question is not why bad things happen to good people, but why good things happen to bad people; namely, why did Jesus came for me?"


What part of writing the book was the easiest/hardest?

My book flowed out of me as if by itself. The question of easy or hard does not apply

What is your writing environment like?

It was when I was in a farmhouse on the Niagra river. It was written from bed mostly when I was deathly ill with lupus. 

What are some of the best tools available for authors today?

I don't know. Possibly prayer, at least it was for me. 

What inspires you to write?
