AN INTERVIEW WITH ANDREA Part 2

"Finishing a book is just like you took a child out in the back yard and shot it."-Truman Capote

Do you feel writing is an emotional experience?
With Always with You, it was an extremely emotional experience. The idea came to me in a dream—a very powerful dream. It must have resonated with me deeply because I had to write that story. The story flowed out of me in just a matter of months. I Read more of this blog post »

“The best way out of your own troubles is to help somebody else with theirs,” Grandpa John said. “Works every time.”
Andrea Hurst, Tea & Comfort

“She had been dreaming of her granddaughter again. A young Lily had pranced around on the old front porch like a little pony, her golden hair soaring behind her as it caught the breeze. But all she had left now were her memories and her good friends.”
Andrea Hurst, The Guestbook

“Each entry was special to her, each life that crossed her path a gift. A smile broke across the wrinkled surface of her face as she flipped open the book and randomly chose an entry from a young couple who’d lodged in the Rose Suite a few years ago.    Maggie, We can’t tell you how much our stay has meant to our marriage. Feeling the love here in this dazzling place helped us find the love for each other again.”
Andrea Hurst, The Guestbook

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Wolves mated for life. Where was he? Where was the echo to her howl, her mate? Was there no other lone wolf, searching the hills for her?”
Andrea Hurst, Always with You

“It was 2:00 p.m., too early for wine but not for chocolate.”
Andrea Hurst, Always with You

“When someone loves you, they always think you're beautiful. Those who don't see your beauty can't really see you at all.”
Andrea Hurst, Always with You

“To know true love, even though it was impossible to keep, had finally cracked her heart open enough to let someone else in.”
Andrea Hurst, Always with You

“Like a white knight in a station wagon, he drove out of her life.”

Claudine Carmel Hi Andrea, I was wondering if there is a release date for book 3 in the Madrona Island series?


Andrea Hurst I’m so excited my new women’s fiction book, Always With You, has been added to Goodreads. Always With You explores the boundaries of love and focuses on a woman who falls in love with a married man and must decide what to do. To find out more or to read an excerpt, check it out here.
