Would You Rather... 
with Loretta Ellsworth

Chips, chocolate or cheese?

Unfortunately, avoiding all three to get in shape for my daughter’s wedding.  Couldn’t choose otherwise.

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw?

Bridget Jones – like Bridget, I always start my day/year with great intentions despite the problems that ensue.

Wine, beer or vodka?


Camping or spa vacation?


Dogs or cats?

I have one of each – that’s like asking me to choose a favorite child.

Coke or Pepsi?


Coffee or tea?

Coffee – trying to learn to love tea, but can’t quite manage it.

Dine out or take away?

Often too busy for dining out, so take away is the quicker option.

High heels, sneakers or flip flops?

Sneakers – I’m a tennis player.

Physical Book or ebook?

Definitely physical.

Pen or pencil?


Drama or comedy?

Depends on the mood.

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick?

Minnesota winters demand chapstick.

Facebook or Twiter?


Plot your entire novel or fly by the seat of your pants?

Have been a panster my whole life, but my agent is turning me into a plotter, or attempting to do so.

Stars over Clear Lake

For the first time in decades, Lorraine Kindred has returned to the ballroom where she was swept away by the big bands during the 1940s - and by a star-crossed romance. As she takes in the magnificent energy and brassy sounds of her youth, the past comes to life, along with the fateful decision all those years ago that forced her to choose between personal conviction and social expectations, between the two men who had captured her heart. It had been a time of great music and love, but also of war and sacrifice, and now, trying to make peace with her memories, Lorraine must find the courage to face buried secrets. In the process, she will rediscover herself, her passion, and her capacity for resilience.
