Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a mother of three little ones, working full-time and married to a loving husband. I have written two christian non-fiction books and now my first novel in the christian fiction genre. I love jogging and reading and spending time with my family. My life thrives in the midst of toys, food messes and googoo-gaga phrases.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Revealed, The Angel Thread Series.
I was on maternity with my third baby when I felt prompted to write the story about an autistic boy and how an artist helped him being unlocked from the private world that keeps him imprisoned.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I write wherever I am whenever I have a few minutes. There is no structure or planning when it comes to my writing habits.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Karen Kingsbury and Francine Rivers have been my inspiration.
What are you working on now?
I am busy working on the second book in The Angel Thread Series.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am still figuring that out. Promoting is not something that comes naturally to me. 🙂
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write, write and write. Never stop in spite of your own critics or people’s opinions. The more you write the quicker you will get beyond your crappy drafts and begin tapping into the beautiful and fascinating worlds you get to create with your words.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
I am always writing for an audience of One. If God is the only one who reads my book, that would be enough. It takes away the pressure to try and please everyone and to remember who ha given me the passion to do what I love doing – write.
What are you reading now?
With the little time I have available, I only read my Bible right now.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I am exploring the world of fiction and will be writing as many books as I can find the stories for.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
My Bible, Live the Let-go Life by Joseph Prince and a book from Karen Kingsbury.
