Debbie also talks about the projects she's currently working on, the audiobooks she likes to listen to, and how the romance genre has changed since her career began almost 20 years ago.

I love books!
I recently started watching the new TV series Cedar Cove. I've enjoyed it so far and think having Andie McDowell as the star is great. One of the things I do is when I see a TV show or movie that I like is that I will look and see who the author is then come to audible and see if the author is someone I want to try. In doing this about Debbie Macomber, whom I had never heard of, I saw this free 20 minute interview and decided to listen to it. I didn't realize until I started listening to the interview that it was from 2006, 7 years old but I listened anyway. I don't know that the interview will have me buying her books but it was interesting. I'm not a big romance novel fan, which her books are, but it was interesting that she says she writes her novels for women, that most romance novels are for women, maybe that's why I don't listen. I have listened to one romance novel by Nora Roberts and admit I really liked it. One interesting tidbit from the interview was that she loves audiobooks and while she reads non-fiction she listens to fiction, in fact, typically has one going in her kitchen, one in her bathroom, maybe one in the living room, and listens in her car. When her husband and she travel together they listen to books, usually of his choosing, and enjoy discussing them. My wife and I do this as well and have always enjoyed it, we used to read to each other while driving before getting hooked on audiobooks. We listened to the entire Harry Potter series while driving with our kids, it was great! Who knows, maybe I will listen to one of her books someday, as long as i can find one at least 10 hours long with a rating over 4.0!
It's all about "YOU!"
the recording was tinny and hurt my ears! It was free, so I didn't expect much, but I thought somewhere in the middle the bad recording frequency would get better. But it didn't.
yes ... Debbie Macomber has always been an interesting character ... so the topic matter is what interested me. I just couldn't comfortably listen to this audio.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Books outside HOT genre = books given to me to review
No, her interview was fine but I did not care for her voice.
There is not a lot to comment on. This was a freebie from Audible. The 20 minute interview [most of which] is available/covered on Debbie Macomber's website.
The reality of hearing from an author can be disappointing but this was not the case. Debbie Macomber seems as nice and down to earth as I imagined
I would not recommend purchase it. However, it was a nice listen and I appreciate the gift, Audible. Thank you.
I have recently switched to mostly audio books because of cataracts. The books I have bought (example: Blossom Street Series) are just as enjoyable as their forefathers (or is that fore-mothers). One reason I always liked your books is that your characters appear to be real with the same fears & faults as we all have. I would love to see some of the older series be made available on Audio, if possible. Thank you for many relaxing hours of reading & now listening.
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
I have had many of her books recommended to me, but this interview really caused me to reconsider. I can't believe how many books she has written and I can't imagine anything with much depth. The interview didn't move me to pick up any of her novels. I had really hoped it would.
