Today is a banner day for you, Readers. We have two interviews. Gail Sattler's interview is for a novel. Be sure to keep reading when you finish this post. Anita is the author of our nonfiction book today. She's another of my dear writing friends.
I love God. I love my family. And I love to write. In that order. But writing has never come easily
to me. I’ve always had to work hard at it. And success has come slowly too. But
I’m grateful to be able to share my work with readers.
Tell us about your family.
Both my kids have
graduated from college and have married. My son, Scott, works in the oil
business, and my daughter, Hillary, works as an assistant to a youth minister.
My daughter is a wonderful writer, and we’re coauthoring a devotional book that
will come out this year. Needless to say, I’m very proud of both my kids.
Have you written other nonfiction books?
I’ve been writing for almost
thirty years, and I have thirty-two books published. Some of those books
through the years have been nonfiction, but now I write mostly novels with an
occasional nonfiction release. But Where
God Finds You was a special book to write. Each devotion is infused with
Biblical fiction, and as far as I know there’s nothing on the market like it.
Do you have any other books in the works right now?
Yes, I’m working on a
novel as well as a devotional book.
What kinds of hobbies and leisure activities do you enjoy? I love gardening,
decorating, and poking around antique shops. Also, I’ve been collecting tea
dishes for years. Sometimes I have my gal friends over for brunches, and I
bring out all my finery.
Why did you write the featured book?
What do you want the reader to take away from the book?
My hope is
that people will enjoy discovering how relevant the Bible stories are to our
lives today. I wanted to bring the characters to life and show that these
ancient people were very much like us with similar hurts and tragedies, hopes
and transgressions, joys and triumphs. Even though the culture was dramatically
different, our hearts are the same. Those famous Bible folk needed God back
then just as we need him in our daily lives right now.
