Interview with Julia Ryan from Writing for His Glory!

Hey, everyone! Guess what? Today's post is an interview with Julia Ryan from Writing for His Glory! I hope you all enjoy it! 
Hello there, and welcome to Adventures Beyond the Horizon, Julia!

Thanks so much, Micaiah, for asking me! :) 

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Well, I am a 15 year old girl, living in a beautiful country home with my wonderful family. I spend most of my time with my siblings and parents playing games, going to parks, reading the Bible, cleaning, and cooking. And, if I'm not doing my schoolwork, blogging, or chatting with friends, I'm reading up a storm or baking something new! 

Who is your favorite author?

Oh, that's a toughy. I go into phases of authors that I love, but, I don't think I have an absolute favorite. Corrie ten Boom has been a gigantic encouragement for me...so I'd say her. :) 

Favorite book?

The Bronze Bow was my favorite last year (2014), but for this year, I'd say The Last Sin Eater. Both VERY good books. :) 

Action, adventure, or mystery?

Hm...I don't read much mystery, nor action, so adventure. But, I really just like calm books with a really good story line and moral. =)

Which time period is your favorite? Why?

I'd have to say mid 1800's. I love the whole move towards the west thing! Like Laura Ingalls Wilder time period. :) 

If you could meet one person (dead or alive) who would it be (besides Jesus)?

My great-grandma...from the stories that my Mom has told me, she was one amazing woman. ♥

Who is your favorite fictional character?

I'd have to say Marty from Love Come's Softly. :) Oh, and don't forget Clark! :D 

Would you rather give up reading fictional books for a year, or give up reading the last two chapters of any books you read for a year?

Oh my! Are you serious?! :D Well...I think not reading the last two chapters, because I can usually figure out what was going to happen. Then at the end of the year go back and read them. Haha! ;)

TV or movies?

Movies! Unless it was 19 Kids and Counting or Growing Up Bates. 

It’s the weekend – what do you do? Go to the bookstore, to the movies, curl up with a good book and your favorite beverage, or to the beach?

Well, all! Though, in different seasons. The bookstore is a spring thing, beach...totally summer, going to the movies with friends is for the fall, while a good book and tea is a Winter thing. Haha! But, it you wanted just one, I'd say the beach. :) 

Do you write? If so, what do you write about?

Yes, I do write. I used to do it a lot more though...but, when I do it is usually about something that has happened in my life with a few twists and turns. I like to write real. :) 

Would you rather have your favorite book turned into a movie, or have a sequel?

Um...I think movie. Sometimes sequels are not the same. But, it depends on the writer. :) 

Thank you for stopping by, Julia!

Thanks for letting me! ;)

Note: My blog is currently under construction! The place where I got my background shut down, so I can't use that one anymore. :/ I quickly put this background, etc. together, but I will be changing it up soon!
