Sensational 7 Q & A with Lisa Schroeder (Author of The Day Before)!
Have you ever wanted to know what it would be like to hang out with your favorite author(s)? In an attempt to get a better understanding of authors, my Sensational Seven Q & A takes a closer or more personal look at these authors to give you a glimpse of the personalities behind the writing of your favorite books.
“Talent alone cannot make a writer. There must be a man behind the book; a personality which, by birth and quality, is pledged to the doctrines there set forth, and which exists to see and state things so, and not otherwise.” By Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you were given a chance to travel back in time, what year or place would you go / Why?
Wow, this is hard. What a great question. Probably back to the late 30s or early 40s, so I could know my grandparents as a young married couple with children, and see my mom as a child. I'd love to get to know my great grandparents too from back then. That time in history interests me too, coming off the war and rebuilding and all of that.

If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be – please explain?
The Woman Obsessed with Friday Night Lights
The show is coming to an end soon and I'm so distraught over it. I feel like the characters are all my friends and I'm going to miss them so much! So someone could write a biography about me and we'd just sit and talk about the show the whole time, and it'd be awesome.
How would you describe yourself/life in seven words?
Living my best life every day
