 Having Fun with LaConnie Taylor-Jones

1.     If you were granted one wish to change the world what would it be and why? I’d wish for peace because that’s the one thing that would conquer the divides we face today.  

2.     If you are given a chance to travel into the past where would you go and why? Believe it or not, I’d love to travel back to the 19th century because the foundation was laid for many of our modern day advancements.   

3.     What is one of the most embarrassing situations you have had? Several years ago, my husband suggested we go to a particular restaurant for dinner to celebrate my birthday.  I was really tired and didn’t want to get dress to go. Actually, I’d hope for a quiet dinner at home. However, he really insisted, I mean really insisted that we go. So to get even with him, I slipped on a pair of jeans and a top.  I realized just how underdressed I was as soon as I walked into the restaurant to a host of family and friends shouting out, “Surprise!”  

4.     What is one thing you’ve always wanted to do, but have yet to do? Take a Mediterranean cruise!

  5. LaConnie, you are totally right! Peace is exactly what we need.

    A Mediterranean cruise sounds nice right now, especially since it’s cold in Chicago.

    I enjoyed the tour.

  6. I too would love a Mediterranean cruise. I hope we both get to take that trip! Your surprise is the exact opposite of mine. We were trying to plan a surprise party for my husband but he asked so many questions and got in the way, that I told his friends “one more time and there will be no surprise!”

  7. LaConnie,
    I have enjoyed learning about you on this tour. I look forward to reading more about the Baptiste family and other characters from your earlier novels.

    I wish you many sales and multiple new readers. God bless.


  8. LaConnie, if I were you I wouldn’t be embarrassed about your birthday party attire. It was your party and at least you were comfortable. That Mediterranean cruise sounds like fun. I hope you get to take it soon.
