Q1. Tell me about yourself what are your favorite books to read? 
A. I’ve found that, as I continue to grow as a writer, I’ve grown more selective as a reader. I tend to choose books from the same genres that I write… mysteries, historical fiction, fantasy… and I gravitate back to older books more than newer. I like stories that move at a good, steady pace, almost like a well-made film; that isn’t preachy, but still, give you something to think about; and that have well-developed characters that act like real people. 
Q2.when did you decide you were going to write a book? I’d been 
A.writing screenplays since the early 2000s and I’d gotten some notice for them, but getting into that industry is notoriously difficult and expensive. Then I learned about the rise of indie publishing, KDP and such, and decided to try adapting the stories into novels.

Q3. How did you come up with the name of your books? 
A. Poetry, songs,  old-fashioned expressions… they all h…

Being A Big Sister

I have three beautiful sisters, we are all different ages and have a different personality that is what I like most about them is we are not all the some we like different things.

Being the big sister is not always easy because you are supposed to be the better example out of your other sisters and that is not always easy growing up everyone would tell me well you are that oldest I hated being the oldest because I felt the pusher of my sisters looking up to me.

As I little older like when I was eight I realized that I got to do more than my other sisters got to do because I was the oldest like when all my sisters were asleep, I would sit on the front porch with my mom watching the fireworks it was a lot of fun. 

Being the older sister is something different that no one can really understand you would have to be the oldest out of your siblings to understand I am not really a good role model at times I can give mean looks roll my eyes and sometimes I don't say very nice things to my si…

Interviewing Author Grahame PeaceQ1. Tell me about yourself what are your favorite books to read?
A. I’m 61 years of age and was born in the Northern Textile Town of Huddersfield in England where I still live with my partner. I like many genres of books, but I don’t like anything too dark; before I retired I worked for many years in Mental Health Services in the UK, so I had more than my fill of ‘life’, and the ups and downs it can throw at people. So, I tend to go for books that offer escapism, I also like history, autobiographies, and biographies. At the moment I’m enjoying the fictional book ‘The Haunting of Ashburn House by Darcy Coates. I say I’m retired, but I now consider myself to be an author, I treat it as a full-time job, working on my books for several hours most days.
Q2. when did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. I retired from my job with the National Health Service in the UK nearly five years ago now; I’d already started my first book by this time (no longer i…

Q1. Tell me about yourself what are your favorite books to read? 
A. I've lived in California my entire life, but think it would be fun to move somewhere completely different for a while. Like Rome. :-) I am a mother of two, who are both awesome adults now.
I love to read mystery, thrillers. And a book has to capture my attention quickly because I lose interest fast. That's why I try to start my books with a hook from the first chapter.
Q2. When did you decide you were going to write a book? 
A. That's an interesting question, because I recently found an old manuscript that I had started in 1988, and never finished! I don't know if that counts though. I got really serious about writing and publishing about 5 years ago.
Q3. How did you come up with the name of your books?
A. So far, I haven't named any of my books until almost done with them. I need to write it to know what title will work.
It's an ongoing process throughout writing ea…

Q1. Tell me about yourself what are your favorite books to read? 
A.  I am semi-retired. My journey into writing began in college.  My origin as a writer was that of being a song lyricist.  Over the years I have worked on many different projects covering a wide spectrum of musical genres.  As I continued writing for music it has resulted in my writing evolving into that of being a Christian writer as well.   I enjoy reading books based on the Christian faith and quite often find myself reading online different excerpts from articles and books daily.

Q1. Tell me about your self what are your favorite books to read?
A. Well, of course, I love children's picture books the best that is why I write them. I remember what a special time reading was for me with my mom and my aunt. My mother had my favorite book saved so I had it as an adult. It was Ponies and was a Rand McNally book. because I loved horses and have been on horseback since before I could walk.      My other favorites are the writings of Laura Ingalls Wilder when she wrote for the newspaper.  She was full of common sense and had an entertaining way of writing.     Lastly was the Rainbow Goblins. Mimi would disappear into the bedroom while I waited patiently on the loveseat. That was the best place to sit so I could share the warmth of her presence upon her return.  She would come back to the living room with the treasured book, “The Rainbow Goblins.”
It was a very big book, with vivid artistry.  None of the children were allowed to touch t…

God has blessed me with a heart to love people from around the world, and my husband, Bill and I have fed and taught International students for at least eighteen years.

Lewis (to sleep) and a couple of Lynn Austin’s Chronicles books. Inspiring books. Made me want to go back to the Bible and see what was true.
Q3. When did you decide you were going to write a book? 
A. My first book was a Bible study, but I always wanted…
