Interviewing Author Kathy Willis

1. Tell me about your self? Others call me “the grin gal” because they see me smile despite some pretty big trials in my life. I’m passionate about helping believers have “aha moments” with the daily application of Scripture. I coach them to learn how to remove the training wheels and not just risk, but also take pleasure in the joy ride of a life trusting in God. Even with all the circumstances, I’ve faced, I have an expectant hope and contentment in the Lord. In my coaching, writing, and speaking, I address the issues that hold people back and shine the light on their path to freedom. It’s a joy to help others, and a privilege to lead my writing group, WordGirls. I have fought health issues since my 20s and have a heart for others who are suffering.   2.What are your favorite books to read? I love reading novels that make me feel like I’m watching an exciting movie in my head! 3. When did you decide you were going to write a book? I knew I was a writer when I was in third grade, but

When did you decide you were going to write a book? I've always enjoyed writing.  But I didn't know I wanted to write a book until I started putting thoughts together on a page and it blossomed from there, a finished book! 4. How did you come up with the name of your book? I was working in a client's home as a caregiver some years ago and kept looking at all of the beautiful flowers on their kitchen table. The flowers were African-violets, and I thought, "Why not start writing a book and name it 'Violets in the Morning?" Eventually, I changed the name of the book to 'Peonies in the Morning', because

They started a while back when I used to babysit five children then became six and then seven. They loved listening to Tony's wacky adventures and every night I would babysit I would have to come up with more and more stories, plots, characters,

Interviewing Author Christina Suzann Nelson

  1. Tell me about yourself? I’m curious. I think that’s one of the reasons I love to write stories. My job gives me an excuse to learn about all sorts of things.   I’m also the mom of six crazy and wonderful kids.

I love the outdoor, especially the mountains. 2.What are your favorite books to read? Oh. That’s hard. I love all sorts of books. I think my favorites are the ones with depth. Also, I love to see the world from a different perspective. I read from most genres. 3. When did you decide you were going to write a book? When I was a young mother of just four kids, my grandmother passed away. She’d been living on the farm with us. I missed her so very much, I needed something to help me deal with the grief, so I wrote. As it turned out, I loved writing books, so I kept at it. 4. How did you come up with the name of your book

Interviewing Author Reka Hall

Tell me about yourself? What are your favorite books to read?  Hi, and thank you for having me. My name is Reka Hall, I am originally from Hungary and lived in Brighton for over 10 years. After I finished university in Pecs and got a degree as Maths and Computer Science teacher, I came to the UK for a summer, and here I am 11 years later married, being a mum, and settled down. When did you decide you were going to write a book?  How long have you been writing? I started writing when my daughter was born 6 years ago. My dad passed away 6 months after she was born, and writing helped with my anxiety, it was always easier for me to express myself in the written word. I also felt talking to kids was somehow easier than talking to adults, so I chose to write stories for kids.  My debut book, When Millypop and her mummy visited Ice Cream Land came out just at the end of August. How did you come up with the name of your book?  The name came from my daughter’s nickname, which she only accepted

Interviewing Author Patricia Miller

  Tell me about yourself: I live in a very small town in Northeast Ohio where I have spent 30+ years of marriage (and counting) and raised 2 children. I have worked as a mental health clinical counselor for nearly 30 years, many of which were spent also providing clinical supervision for new counselors just starting out. I fell in love with literature in my high school British Literature class and that remains my favorite literature yet today. All of my aspirations as a writer came from British Literature, specifically Agatha Christie and classic Sherlock Holmes stories. What are your favorite books to read? Mysteries will always be my favorite books to read. Anything that exercises my mind and has me trying to figure something out always keeps my attention. I have written in the genres of mystery, YA, sci-fi, romance, and magic realism. I have an outline for a paranormal set in a local castle I plan to write but I am leaning more in the direction of mysteries and am planning to try my

Interviewing Author Megan Hardgrave

1. Why did you decide to become a writer? MH: Well, I like telling stories about historical people that interest me, and the best advice I follow is, as Mark Twain said: “write what you know best.” And I had a story to tell. I had found a nugget of history – a teenager who was caught up in the assassination aftermath of my hero, Abraham Lincoln. All I knew was a name and a picture. As I followed the research, I wanted to make this into an interesting story for my age group. 3. What was the first thing you ever wrote, and what do you remember about it?   After I watched the Pride and Prejudice mini-series on A & E, I wanted to read Jane Austen’s books. After reading those books, I read her biography. So when my high school teacher for British Literature assigned us to write a paper as though we were a person living in nineteenth-century England, I immediately chose Jane Austen. I wrote a mini-diary as Miss Austen at the age of thirty-seven, a published author. It was what I imagined

Interviewing Author Norma Gail

 Tell me about yourself? I was born with a love for words and how they express our deepest emotions. Reading opens doors to new worlds. The writing flows from the deepest part of the writer’s heart and is an endless adventure. I married the love of my life over 44 years ago. We have been blessed to raise two amazing human beings that God gave us through adoption. We live in the mountains of New Mexico at an altitude of 7200 feet and a view of almost 100 miles out our back windows. Everything I write flows from my faith in Jesus Christ.  I love strong female characters who seek to be the best they can be and learn that all they need rest in Jesus. 2.What are your favorite books to read? Historical fiction and contemporary Christian romance are my favorite genres to read and to write. 3. When did you decide you were going to write a book? I decided to give writing for publication a try when I broke my foot and ended up in a wheelchair for 8 weeks. Reading didn’t satisfy me and I had idea
