Character Interview -- Susanne Dietze's Georgie Bridge -- "First Things First"


Georgie Bridge's Character Inspiration -- Jessica Alba

Carrie Fancett Pagels here. I had the privilege of interviewing heroine Georgie Bridge (AKA author Susanne Dietze) about her story in the First Love Forever Romance Collection (Barbour, April 2018)

CFP: Welcome, Georgie! What's going on with you?
My brother has been arrested for kidnapping. He's innocent of course! My mother is pregnant and we're afraid she's dying. I feel as though I must take care of my younger siblings. And we have cattle missing from the ranch.

CFP: What about -- Romance?
The only man I have loved has come back to town. He went away to become a lawyer. Ward is the opposing counsel in a case against my father!

But I'm juggling a lot of responsibilities.

CFP: How has juggling all those things affecting you?
I feel like need to handle everything. I often forget to ask God to help me. But Ward has been reminding me that I need to do that.

CFP: Is Ward also helping you in other ways?
Yes, he is the lawyer now for my brother. He's trying to get him out of jail. Ward is a wonderful emotional support to me in other ways, too.

CFP: Georgie, what spiritual truths are helping you?
As the title of my story says -- "First Things First." God has to be put first and I need to trust Him with my family
.
CFP: That's a wonderful thing to learn! Thanks for visiting with us Georgie (and Susanne!)
