What was your favorite book as a child?
Anything to do with horses. Everything to do with horses. Two books that I still own today (although the paperback is seriously ready to crumble into a thousand pieces) are: Golden Cloud and Old Bones.
What book did you read that first made you want to be an author?
I won’t give you the title because the book that made me want to try to write a novel was one that I didn’t like. I basically thought, If this can get published, I could get published. (I’m sure my early books launched a few careers for the same reason.) Aspiring writers don’t realize how arrogant that statement is until we actually begin to write, one book, then another and another and another. By the time we discover just how hard this particular career path is, it’s too late. We are hooked on storytelling.
What was the last book you read, just for fun?
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
What upcoming release are you most looking forward to?
Bridge to Haven by Francine Rivers

About A Promise Kept
Tony Kavanagh had been Allison’s dream-come-true. They were in love within days, engaged within weeks, married and pregnant within a year. Her cup bubbled over with joy . . . but years later, that joy had been extinguished by unexpected trials.
The day Allison issued her husband an ultimatum, she thought it might save him. She never expected he would actually leave. She was certain God had promised to heal; it was clear that she’d misunderstood.
Now, living in the quiet mountain cabin she inherited from her single, self-reliant Great Aunt Emma, Allison must come to terms with her grief and figure out how to adapt to small town life. But when she finds a wedding dress and a collection of journals in Emma’s attic, a portrait of her aunt emerges that takes Allison completely by surprise: a portrait of a heartbroken woman surprisingly like herself.
As Allison reads the incredible story of Emma’s life in the 1920s and 1930s, she is forced to ask a difficult question: Does she really surrender every piece of her life to the Lord?
Drawing from her own heart-wrenching story of redemption, A Promise Kept is Robin Lee Hatcher’s emotionally charged thanksgiving to a God who answers prayers—in His own time and His own ways.
