Interviewing Author Ken Farmer

1. Tell me about yourself? Ken Farmer didn't write his first full novel until he was sixty-nine years of age. He often wonders what the hell took him so long. At age seventy-nine…he's currently working on novel number thirty-seven.                 Ken spent thirty years raising cattle and quarter horses in Texas and forty-five years as a professional actor (after a stint in the Marine Corps). Those years gave him a background for storytelling…or as he has been known to say, "I've always been a bit of a bull---t artist, so writing novels kind of came naturally once it occurred to me I could put my stories down on paper." Ken's writing style has been likened to a combination of Louis L'Amour and Terry C. Johnston with an occasional Hitchcockian twist…now that's a combination. He doesn't write any sex scenes or foul language. Writers resort to vulgarity when they aren't capable of wit. In addition to his love for writing fiction, he likes to teach

I have lived in 3 states and 2 countries. I would wear flip-flops every day if the weather allowed. 2.What are your favorite books to read? I love to read contemporary romance and romantic suspense. My favorite books all have a HEA and do not end in a cliffhanger. 3. When did you decide you were going to write a book? I wrote my first book in 2002. I did not set out to become a writer. My husband and I were in the middle of adopting our daughter from Russia. The wait became torturous. One day, I came home from work and poured out my frustrations into my computer. Coming Home was born. In about 3 weeks, I wrote over 100, 000 words. After many revisions, I finally published COming Home in 2017. 4. How did you come up with the name of your book? The titles generally come easily for me and often

Interviewing Author Joy Avery Melville ~ Author

1. Tell me about yourself? A: That would be like writing a book all its own, Angelika, lol. I have a short bio, I think I’ll slip in here along with a bit more personal information. It’s always been my heart’s desire is to be the author God has called me to be by sharing Him with readers in such a way they long to have a deeply committed personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord.  Fully intending to write Historical Romance—had in fact— I had no plans to deviate from that. God had something else in mind for that ‘call’ He’d made on my life back in 1967. A mere eighth-grader at the time, I didn’t have a clue about the topics I’d be drawn to write about. Surrendering to the genre God placed on my heart has given me new insight into the hearts and lives of those who too often hurt in silence. The settings of my books are near where I live in Schoolcraft, Michigan with her husband of 46 + years and our 2-year old Yorkie, Is-A-Bella Bindi, (Is-a-beautiful little girl) who thinks she’s
