Q1.Please tell me more about yourself?

A. I'm from Baltimore, Maryland and I currently live in Northern Virginia with my husband and two children. I work full time for a government agency and I pursue my passion for creative writing when I get the opportunity.  I'm the owner of Penvision Ink, a publishing company dedicated to producing books that inspire others to understand their worth.  

Q2. What are your favorite books to read?

A. You will find a variety of titles in my library from inspirational to marketing books. Years ago, I read fiction mostly. Now I tend to read books that will help me create and sustain wealth, and improve my mental, spiritual and physical health. When I want to relax and take my mind on a journey, I read fiction. A few books that I am either reading or are in my quest to read are: Determined- Living Like Jesus in Every Moment by Heather Dixon, The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Feeding the Soul by Tabitha Brown, Get Good with Money by Tiffany Aliche, and #staymarried-A Couple’s Devotional by Michelle Peterson.  

Q3. Do you like coffee or tea?

A. I like both. I know I should make a choice when being asked about a preference, but I can't choose. I like them both equally, but for different reasons. I need coffee to get through the day when I'm working and tea relaxes me.

Q4. How many books have you written?

A. I've written three books.

Q5. Do you have a favorite bookstore?

A. I've moved several times, but a bookstore I visited often while living in Dallas, Texas was the Barnes & Noble in Highland Village. It was close to home and they had reading hours and activities for infants and toddlers, which was convenient for me at the time. 

Q6. Did you go to college for writing?

A. Yes, I have a bachelor's in Mass Communications from Susquehanna University, a master's in Journalism from Syracuse University, and a master's in Biblical and Theological Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary where I took several creative writing classes.

Q7. Growing up What were your favorite books to read?

A. Growing up, I loved to read fiction. As a child, my father took me to the Enoch Pratt library after school. 

Q8. How did you get inspired to write a book?

A. I was inspired to write my first book, In The Name of the Father, when I understood that struggles are an opportunity to trust God. I believe that challenges in life push us to triumph and give us testimonies. My inspiration to write comes from the desire to share the hope we have in Jesus. 

Q9. What hobbies do you have?

A. Writing and reading are things I like to do when I have the time. 

Q10. Do you have a favorite coffee shop?

A. I had a favorite coffee shop in Lochearn, Maryland, which has since closed. It was called Street Folks and it was an intimate space that had open-mic poetry. My friends and I would go every weekend and I would share my poetry some nights. While the tea was amazing, the experience is what drew me to a coffee shop every weekend while I lived in that part of town. 

Q11. Where can people find you online?

A. They can find me online at

Interviewing Author Grahame Peace Q1. 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 th

Interview Author Gabriella Messina 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,

Interviewing Author Lanna Foley Webb 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.
