More than you ever wanted to know about me

My Catholic writing, blog world friend Roxane Salonen is featuring me in an interview on her Peace Garden Writer blog. I'll get you started and then you can click the link to read the rest. (I'm such a tease.) Here it is:

This month’s “Spotlight’s on” features someone I have admired and been in contact with for several years now. Mary DeTurris Poust and I have never met in real life, but we hope to someday. When that day comes, we’ll have much to talk about. Mary is a wife and mother of three, and the author of several books, each focusing on matters of the soul, as well as many articles, including those she’s written for the much-respected Our Sunday Visitor Catholic magazine. She blogs regularly for “OSV Daily Take” and at her own blog, Not Strictly Spiritual.

Mary, first off, I know you just learned you’ll be traveling to Rome in September. Please share with us details of your trip, why you are going there and what you’ll be doing while you are there.

Yes, I’m going to Rome the first week of September. To be honest, this is one of those moments that just feels like it was meant to be. A few years ago I promised myself I’d get to Italy – where my paternal grandfather was born – before I turned 50, but I really didn’t see how that was going to happen. Then a few weeks ago I got an email about a program called “Church Up Close” at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome. Continue reading HERE.
Thanks again, Roxane.

Mary, I so enjoyed our time together for this interview, even if it was just virtual. Hoping it will bring a handful or more of new fans your way! :)

I think you made a great point. One that I have been thinking about as well.
