A Step back in time Christmas

A Step back in time Christmas
Growing up My family would always get together for a Christmas party gathering we would rent out a party center back in my old town that could fit all of our friends and family that we invited.
Everyone brought a different food dish I can remember my aunt always bringing hot dogs and baked beans my mom would make little corn dogs and my grandma would bring little hot dogs and bbq sauce mixed with them. I always enjoy making a new dessert dish and my aunt would make this yummy mushroom dip it is my favorite. my grandpa would make this yummy punch that he would make every year and it was so good.

Everyone would bring a 20 dollar gift if you were in the adult gift exchange and the kid's gift exchanged you would bring something them to open too my grandparents would always give us a dollar and stuffed toy is was so cute and it made it fun.
know that my family has grown so much we started a secret sister party where all the ladies in my family get together and…

when did you decide you were going to write a book?

A. my daughter passed away at 5.5 months old. My son was 5 at the time. We had a hard time finding books that weren’t geared towards grandparents or parents/aunts/uncles (not to say they aren’t out there, we just didn’t get to them). I also struggled with telling my son everything was going to be ok or try to make sense of it, with everyone sad and upset, I couldn’t even explain it myself. 

Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 
A. It was based on the context of the book, was a pretty quick pick. 

Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?
A. A book about rainbow babies

Q 4. how long have you been writing?
A. I’ve loved writing since I was a toddler. I used to pretend to write stories. But I put my plan in motion in February this year. 

Q 5. What advice would you give other authors?

interviewing author James M. Becher

Q1 When did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. In 1969, In St. Petersburg  Jr. College, FL,  I submitted one of my stories, A Biblical fiction short story set in the time of Christ, to a magazine contest and it won 2nd prize.  In 1974, after graduating from college (Clearwater Christian College) and Seminary (Biblical School of Theology in Hatfield, Pennsylvania) I went back to that prize-winning story and decided to expand it into a novel by adding more characters and drawing out the plot. Thus, my first book began. Shortly after starting this book I got the idea for my second book, a purposeful time-travel novel.  So I started work on both.

Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books?

A. Naming my books came somewhat naturally, Since my first book is a Biblical novel, it was natural to choose a title from the Bible, and, since my novel contrasted the earthly kingdoms of the time with the kingdom of God, I chose the phrase which Jesus spoke in Mark 10:14-15 concerning…

Interviewing Mark Gunning

Q1.when did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. It was back in 1998 when I first saw a copy of The Adventures of Captain Underpants. I thought the book was quite funny and that someday, I’d write a series for kids myself. It wasn’t until I met fellow author Michael Wade at an author visit at a school in 2010, that got me back on track to start writing. I’m glad I went to see him. 

Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 
A.Growing up I had a best friend that shared a lot of adventures with me in my neighborhood. My stories are based loosely on the two of us. So, I decided to use my middle names for the two main characters. (William and Thomas)

Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?
A. Presently I’m working on book three in my I Told You So! series. I’ve even introduced a new character to the series. It won’t be out until 2019. However, I did release my second book this past June. 

Q 4. how long have you been writing?
A. I started writing my series back in 2015 and…

Q.1 When did you decide you were going to write a book? 

A.I've known I was going to write a book since I was big enough to hold a pencil.

Q.2 How did you come up with the name of your books?
A. This first one has been through several iterations. I sent the early chapters into several contests under different names: Demon's Wager, Demons Don't (it won the Golden Heart under that title) until finally, a friend suggested The Demon Always Wins, riffing off the poker theme in the book. Q.3 What are you working on now for 2018? 
A. I just sent the second book in my Touched by a Demon series off to my editor. It's called The Demon's in the Details and I hope to release it in January. And I'm working on the first draft of the third book in the series, The Demon Wore Stilettos. 
Q 4. How long have you been writing? 
AI started writing in second grade. Writing a book was easy. Writing a book worthy of publication was a lot harder.
