Interviewing Author Michael Allyn LaBorn


Q1.1. Tell me about yourself, what are your favorite books to read? 

A. What is there to say about me? Hmm. I live in a small town with my wife and our two daughters. I have been faithfully serving the Church for well over a decade, and boy has it been a wild ride! Most recently, we started a House Church and have been pouring the majority of our time and energy into calling this generation of the Church back into the basics of our faith. As for my favorite books, there are more than I can possibly name! Top five would probably be: The Practice of the Presence (Brother Lawrence), The Pursuit of God (Tozer), The Pursuit of Man (Tozer), Pagan Christianity (George Barna and Frank Viola) and The Master Narrative (Yeah, I had to throw one of my own books in there! Loyalty and whatnot).

Q2.When did you decide you were going to write a book? 

A. Oh, I think I was born with the knowledge that this is what I was going to do with my life! I have always desired to write.

Q3.How did you come up with the name of your books? 

A. When I am naming a book, I always consider four things. 1. What has God said to me about this book? 2. What problem or question am I trying to address, and is there one word that can sum it up? What would catch my attention? And what has my wife already said no to? (Because let’s be honest, sometimes I think I’ve found the perfect title and I am just plain wrong).

Q4.What are you working on for 2019? 

A. I am working on two projects. The first is actually a book I released in 2018 that I am not rereleasing with a better cover, more detailed writing, and a fresh marketing strategy. It is called The Master Narrative and it is an incredibly insightful look at the individual books, and overarching theme, of the Old Testament. The other project I am working on doesn’t quite have a definite title yet, but I am working with Bethel and Beyond the Veil (shhh, don’t tell). I am very excited about this project! The more I look at the state of the Church today, the more I realize that something has to give. Despite our innovation and numerical growth in the last hundred years, the Western Church has become weaker, quieter and less driven to love. This project is going to be intimately examining the Church that Jesus built and calling this generation back to its roots. My hope is that by holding up this mirror, believers will not only remember who we used to be but determine to be that again. 

Q5.How long have you been writing?

A.My entire life. Professionally, however? About eight years.

Q6. What advice would you give other authors? 

A.Don’t let anyone tell you who you are, but try using your listening ears when the people you love try to tell you how to grow. Not every criticism has to discourage you. Sometimes, they can be the fuel that drives you to be better. And above everything… honor God.

Q7.where can people find you online? 

A.Everywhere! If you are interested in getting a taste of my writing or following my career, check out my blog:www.michaellaborn.com and make sure you sign up for my mailing list.

Q8.Do you plan on making more books in the future? 

A. Oh goodness, yes. Until the day I die. 

Q9.How many books have you written? 

A. Twelve, but not all of them are currently available for purchase. Keep your eyes peeled!

Q10. Did you go to college to be a writer?

A.No, Ma’am. I interned at a local Church and spent years learning from anyone and everyone who would teach me. My education was unconventional but thorough!

I would like to say think you to Author Michael Allyn LaBorn for allowing me to interview him.

Enjoy reading Angelika

A. It all started with a thought of creating something with the emails shared between my husband and I - I thought at a minimum it would be fun to pass this down to our children. After allowing others to read the emails and telling our story, so many people would say that I should write a book....so I did :)
_Kisses from Sardinia _has all the makings of a novel, but it’s a true story—a story of chance, romance, and happenstance that every woman, young or old, should read and thus be inspired. Laurie’s tale of adventure will awaken youn…

Q1. Tell us about yourself. What are your favorite books to read?
A. I’m a SAHM and wife. I love to watch horror movies especially if it’s based on a Stephen King book. I am a huge fan of two phenomenal female authors, Kimberla Lawson Roby & Victoria Christopher Murry. They both write African American fiction. Their novels are so inspirational.
Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from? 
A. Wow, I remember falling in love with writing in school. Being given an assignment that allowed me to create my own story was an incredible feeling. I would spend a lot of times in my room as a kid writing fun comic strips. But the day I made the profound decision to write a book. Was when I was in middle school and a classmate had a notebook with her own fiction story. I read it and thought to myself. Hmmm, I would write one better.

Q3. How did you come up with the name of your books?
A.  A lot of brainstorming and researching to make sure the title isn’t a…
