‘Far Away Bird’: Six Questions for Douglas A. Burton [INTERVIEW]

Douglas A. Burton

Douglas A. Burton is a man fascinated by the role heroes and heroines play in our culture. Now he’s written a book about one of his favorites.

We don’t always advertise it as such, but we love a good hero story. Whether we’re watching the latest incarnation of Superman or Spider-Man or reading about more mortal heroes like Atticus Finch or Jack Reacher (although let’s face it, they kind of have their own brand of super powers), we love to have someone to cheer for. That’s one of the reasons we recently chatted with Douglas A. Burton, author of Far Away Bird, a novel based on one woman who made a big splash in history quite a long time ago. We hope you enjoy our interview as much as we did! —J&H Read more of this post

We’ve always loved island life. There’s just something about the simplicity of it that beckons to us and appeals to our nature. Perhaps it’s the scent of the sea, the waves on our toes, or the closeness of a small community where everyone knows everybody else. Few people capture this as well as Susan Mallery does in her Blackberry Island books, and it is always a joy when we get to visit her picturesque community one more time. In her latest volume in the series, she introduces us to three girls who really love one another and help each other over some seemingly insurmountable hurdles. We hope you enjoy this sneak peek into Sisters By Choice.J&H Read more of this post
