How did you become interested in writing?
I started writing in a diary when I was six! I’ve always loved words and writing.
What compelled you to write a book on this subject?
I write dual-time novels so when deciding what era to set the historical part of the book, the Gilded Age really stood out to me. It was such lavish time and entering the 20th Century, the world was changing. I wanted to look at how women lived then. Of course then I tied the past into a present day story.
What is the main theme or point that you want readers to understand from reading your book? Are there any other themes present in the book?
Ecclesiastes 3:11 says “eternity is written on our hearts.” Remember that once we pass from this life, we have eternity to live and fulfill the things God’s called us to do. But also, to run the race of this life with honor and dignity.
How does the book intertwine with God’s call on your life and how you are currently serving Him?
I love that I write books for a living. I know this is what the Lord has called me to do. So I give it my all to honor Him with my work.
Do you have a favorite Scripture verse?
I have a few favorite verses but Psalm 45:11 “the king desires your beauty,” is one of my all time favorites. Those five words say so much.
When you are not writing, what do you like to do? Do you have any hobbies?
Seems like I’m always writing! I do love to relax with my hubby, watch TV, read. We also work out together. I’m the worship leader at my church so that keeps me engaged with the outside world. ;) This year if I wasn’t writing, I was at a conference or with extended family. It’s been a writing and family kind of year.
