Interview with Jill Limber
Q: Thank you so much for this interview, Jill! Can you tell us where you are from?
I’ve lived my whole life in Southern California, and reside in San Diego
Q: How did you come up with the title?
The Right Track–It just seemed like a natural, given the setting for the story is on a private railroad car traveling across the United States.
Q: They say you can judge a book by its cover. Can you tell us a little about your cover and who designed it?
It was designed by an artist who works for a major New York publisher and does some work for clients on the side. Kyle Koker is a very talented designer who captured the feel of the story very well.
Q: Can you tell us something about your book that would make me run out and buy it?
Love on an antique rail car – unique and sexy.
Q: Are there any messages in this book that you want the reader to know about?
The message in this book is to reach for your dreams, take some chances and celebrate the journey.
Q: What was your most favorite chapter to write and why?
The scene where the hero and heroine meet is my favorite. They both judge the other and start their relationship with some pretty big misconceptions.
Q: Why did you feel you had to write this book?
This book was like a gift to me. It came out of my own experiences and was fun and easy to write.
Q: Now, some fun questions – What deep dark secret would you like to share with us?
I am a master procrastinator and I’m always amazed when I finish a first draft.
Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I haven’t seen Ireland yet, and like a lot of the population of the U. S., one of my great-grandparents immigrated from there, so I’d love to visit.
Q: Are you a morning person or a night person?
Oh, definitely morning when it comes to writing.
Q: Are there any members in your family who also like to write?
No—it seems I’m the oddball.
Q: As a child, were you a dreamer?
Yes—and it got me into a great deal of difficulty both at home and at school.
Q: Last but not least, the magic genie has granted you one wish. What would that be?
Hmm—do I have to choose between world peace and being a size six? I guess I’d have to go with world peace.
Q: Thank you so much for this interview! Do you have any final words?
Sure—if you dream about writing, sit down and do something about it.
