Hangin' Out with Nancy Herriman!

Time has not been my friend today!  I meant to have this posted oh...around lunchtime, and now's, it's a whole 8 hours later.  I hope some of y'all are night owls like me, and are looking here, there, and yon to read an interview tonight with an up and coming author.  What?  You're not?  Well, you oughta be!!!  *wink*

I've not had the privilege yet of reading Nancy's debut novel, The Irish Healer, but it is patiently waiting for me on my Kindle.  Until then, I'm so happy that she stopped by for all us bookies to get to know her better.

Welcome, Nancy!


Not including writing, what was your first job?

I was an engineer.

What is one movie that you could watch over and over again?

Boy, it's a toss up between The Philadelphia Story and A Christmas Story. ;-)

If you could have any one superpower, what would it be?

Self-replication - there's not enough of me to go around!

I have that same problem!  Quick, let's get some scientist on the phone, and tell him to get busy...  (we may be waiting awhile...)

What food do you love, even though you know you shouldn’t?

Cheese danish

Oh, I want one right this minute.  Who needs to wait until breakfast to eat one?!  :o)

Which magazine do you pick up when you’re stuck in a waiting room?

Any travel magazines

Have you ever met anyone famous?

I met George Clooney in high school when he took a friend to the prom.

Quite possibly the coolest celeb anyone has ever met in all the Hangin' Out interviews so far!  You're in tall cotton, girl! 

What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?

Honestly, nothing.

I don't believe it.  Nope...sure don't.  :o)

You’re next in line to audition for American Idol. What song do you sing for the judges?

Anything by Barbra Streisand (I'm showing my age!)

  1. It was great to "meet" you here, Nancy! I appreciate your taste in classic movies. Love the cover of your book. I'm following via FB and Twitter. Blessings!

    1. I guess A Christmas Story is old enough now to be considered a "classic" least, my husband would think so. :o)

  2. Sounds like a good book. Thank you for the chance to win

  3. Self-replication does sound great!
    I saw The Irish Healer for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and decided it was a must read. :)

  4. Thanks, guys! I only wish I could say I'd met George Clooney recently, instead of, um, a very long time ago. ;-)

    1. Thanks for being the guest this week, Nancy! And hey, better late than never to meet someone like George Clooney. It's a big deal anytime! :o)

  5. I LOVED that interview! And George Clooney? Wow, right place, right time, I'd say!

    So glad to get to know Nancy a little bit better! :)

  6. And I've been pleased to be here!

  7. I'm new to Christian fiction in many ways, but am finding that the historical fiction is so beautiful in this genre especially. I would love to have a chance to read this book. Thank you for taking the time to have the giveaway and all thata entails. Nice interview, too! :] I'm a new follower of yours. Come by and see me if you have a moment some day! I've enjoyed my visit with you.


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
