Ada Brownell interview with Award-winning author Anita Higman about  "Destiny"

How do we create and change our destiny?

Anita Higman: I guess one could say that in order to fulfill our calling—or our destiny—it’s a matter of going to God and asking Him to guide us every step of the way. It would be perilous to travel this earthly journey without Him.

I’d like to hear your personal account of how you became a best-selling, award-winning writer, and whether you ever imagined that happening.

Anita: I guess I figured that after writing for 30 years I should have a certain amount of success. So, in that way, I guess I expected it. How did it happen? A lot of bone-tiring, relentless effort. But it was worth it.

Give us the low-down on your main character looking at the angle of destiny,

Winston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Lucy O’Brien lives this motto, but when she is given ten million dollars because of a heroic deed, she has to suddenly grapple with all sorts of issues she’s never faced before. Hopefully, Lucy can learn to deal with wealth without losing all the wonderful personality traits that make her so beloved.


A Question of Destiny

Anita Higman

Lucy O’Brien is about to be given ten millions dollars.
Multi-millionaire, Ian Chalmers, has decided to give a portion of his wealth to Lucy because of her courageous and self-sacrificing lifestyle. With these sudden riches, Lucy is given a chance to rise above her meagre income and enter a whirling and glittering world of comfort and privilege. Since Ian is concerned that Lucy may struggle with this unexpected change in fortune, he hires his assistant—the solitary and stony Andrew Whitfield—to watch over Lucy as she adapts to her new way of life.
Will this windfall be Lucy’s undoing, or can she rise above the temptations within Houston’s high society and choose to be a nobler version of herself? And will Andrew Whitfield cause her to close the door on her dreams, or is he the key that opens the rest of Lucy’s destiny?
