“Mr. Sparks is on the line.”
That was what I heard in my headset while I was waiting for my interview with author Nicholas Sparks. He had agreed to an interview with St. Anthony Messenger in conjunction with the release of the film The Lucky One based on his novel by the same name.
When I had posted on Facebook that I would be interviewing him, I was amazed by the overwhelming response I got. I guess I knew how popular Mr. Sparks was, but apparently I didn’t realize HOW popular he was.
“I love his books.”
“You are so lucky.”
I must confess, I hadn’t read many of his books, or seen a lot of his movies–four kids kind of hamper my book reading and movie watching time–so I was appreciative of the input, and I was excited to see what makes this author tick.
And he did not disappoint. Nicholas Sparks made for a fascinating interview that I look forward to turning into a feature for a future issue of St. Anthony Messenger. Keep your eyes open. He’ll be worth the wait.
