She would also bring c…

Q.1 when did you decide you were going to write a book?
That's a great question I have had or been responsible for two pugs in my life and have always thought that these types of dogs are hilarious and I like dragons and the magic behind them. So I figured why not write and illustrate a book about both of them.
Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books?
To be frank my first book was birthed in therapy it's a therapeutic book for children that are going through abuse so the name came naturally. My second book got its title from the main characters name and just the wacky adventure he is on and of course the Island he ended up on.
Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?
I am now working on the continuation of "Wex's Wacky Adventure To Koma Keone Island" I am currently illustrating the book the manuscript is almost complete 

Q 4. how long have you been writing?
I have been writing for three years now, it's gone by…

Q1.when did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. I decided to write a book many years after I created a colored pencil drawing of a dog many years ago.  About 3 years ago, I quite by accident talked with a woman at the hospital I work at. She told me she had plans of writing a children's book and was looking for an illustrator.  Being a multi-media fine artist, I, of course, showed her samples of some of my work.  After showing her my drawing of the dog, Wilber, which I had named when I did the drawing, I thought, why was I not doing something myself.  I always wanted to use the drawing in a cartoon strip, but could never think of anything funny.  Making a children's book was the perfect answer for me.
Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 
A. I came up with the name of my books after thinking about what I was going to do with the drawing.  I decided that I would use Wilber to teach morals and the right things t…

Q1. when did you decide you were going to write a book?


A. I read a book by a popular Christian author and I hated the way it ended! I have always had stories running around in my head, so I decided to write a story that would satisfy my romantic sensibilities in a moment of some sort of rebellion against the ending of that book.
Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 
A. The name of the book is the name of one of the main characters, and it so well encapsulates the driving source of the conflict that it seemed more than more fitting.

Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?
A. I am currently working on two projects. The first is the next in the series after Lonesome Wolf. I'm loving the character more than I thought possible! The second is a western in the style of Louis L'Amour. It is interesting to me because I usually run to romances.
Q 4. how long have you been writing?
A.I've been writing since I could put pen to pap…

Q. 1. when did you decide you were going to write a book? I have been writing poetry for a long time and the idea of writing a book wasn't even a thought. However, the Lord had other plans. I wrote a series of articles to help women who had abortions heal and those articles became the backbone of my current book From Ashes of Pity into the Beauty of Purpose. The idea took root about 13 years ago, but the book did not become reality until a few years ago.
Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books This is a tough question to answer. I feel led by the Lord and He inspires me and gives me the titles of my books. 
Q. 3 what are you working on now for 201 8? I am currently working on a grief devotional for parents who have lost a child. 


Q 4. how long have you been writing? I have been writing since I was 15 and I am almost 58 now.

Interviewing Author Lisa Stillwell

Q.When did you decide you were going to write a book? 
A. I decided to write a book when I was working at Pink Hill Elementary School in Pink Hill, North Carolina. I was going through a lot of challenges, and I would use writing as an outlet. One of those challenges was my mother being diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. That was a tough time for me, but God used that period of my life to refine my character and allow me to focus on the things that were most important.
Q.2 How did you come up with the name of your books?
A. The first book I have ever written was I Asked, God, Spoke. This book was more like a journal, but I turned those journals into Devotionals. Whatever I was going through that day I would write it down. I would then ask God to guide me when it came to dealing with that day's problem, and no matter what He always had an answer.  I would jot that answer on a piece of paper with t…

Q1. when did you decide you were going to write a book?


A. It was immediately after giving my eulogy at my brother-in-law's funeral (spoiler alert, lol).  I was told not to let his testimony die with him, but to tell it to the world.  This was July 14th.
Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 
A. At first, I was just going to name it "Daniel's Transformation", but that just sounded too generic.  I wanted something that sounds a little less generic.  When I started thinking about it, "Daniel: A Life Transformed" just clicked and, I thought, sounded better.
Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?
A.. Currently, I'm on a break; however, I'm waiting on a friend who I've approached about a book about her son.  She's still in a state of somewhat shock, so I'm waiting on things to calm down and for her to be able to talk about it more before we get the ball rollin…

interviewing authors Linda Edington Hanna and co-author, Deb Dulworth 
Q1.when did you decide you were going to write a book? -  

A. My co-author, Deb Dulworth and I began to write our first book, Reflections of a Stranger, shortly after we met in 1991. Got as far as a basic outline. We had to put the story on hold when we took over the senior adult ministry for three churches. We dusted off the outline in 2009 and finished it in 2011.
Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books - 
A. We got the name for the first one from something that happened in the story. The other three books are in the Seasons of Change series, so we used the seasons for inspiration.

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


A.  I have always wanted to write a book. To see your name on the front cover and be able to watch people read it in a library was a dream of mine.

Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books
A.  Derek the Alien and the Orange Jelly Planet' was my first book published in January of this year. I have no idea where I got the name from although I did think of 'Mickey' at first but then considered it might sound like Mickey Mouse! Derek was the next name in my head! (I don't even know anyone called Derek!). I wanted Derek to have another adventure so my next book will be launched around November time. This one is called 'Derek the Alien and the Raspberry Milkshake Sky'. I guess that has answered the question

Interviewing Author Carl David Nuttall

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

A. Bizarrely, I first decided to write stories after speaking to my work colleagues. I briefly mentioned that I made stories up for my son and it was suggested that I write them down so as not to forget them. From there I just kept on writing and now I have self-published six books.
Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 
A.  Coming up with the name for my first book was easy really! They are short story compilations so that was the first part done, then the second part was just a catchy title surrounding the fact that all of the stories contained animals. "Short Stories For Kids: Amazing Animal Adventures" just seemed like the logical choice!
Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?
A.  Thinking of new stories has taken a bit of a back - burner for now. This is mainly owed to the fact that I am having several translations completed, all of which need editing before …

The benefits of homeschooling versus public school.

The benefits of homeschooling versus public school.  
Hi my name is Angelika and my mom homeschooled my 3 sisters and me since 2002-2009 she homeschooled all of us for 8 wonderful years and we really enjoy it so this is my view on why there are benefits of being homeschooled are versus public school.
My Mom started homeschooling me after she took me out of the public school in grade school she took me out because the teachers where miss mistreated Me and I did not learn in a way that would fit me and I was way behind in school because of my epilepsy and Adhd That is why my mom took me out of the school is to Help me with my Adhd and to help me and all my sisters deal with the death of my sister Hannah who passed away and to give me and my three sisters individual attention we needed.
Homeschooling is great because children can learn at there own pace and take a break if they need too that is what my mom let us do when we need a break so we would take a break and come back to It with ha…

interviewing Author Donna E. Lane  
when did you decide you were going to write a book?
A.  My first book is called Restored Christianity.  It was birthed from conversations with my oldest son, Hayden Lane, about struggles we were having reconciling what we saw in Scripture with what the church was teaching. Generally accepted common beliefs didn't match the teachings of Jesus or the writings of Paul. After a few years of conversation, we decided to do something about it. Restored Christianity is our attempt to nail "95 Theses" to the door of the church (a la Martin Luther) to challenge these common beliefs and restore the original teachings of Christianity
Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 
A. Usually, the names arise from the content and focus of the book, whatever that might be. I write both fiction and nonfiction and different genres, so my titles are very reflective of the content.
 Q3. what are you working on now for 20 18?
A. I am currently writing a …
