THE GOLDEN BRIDE - Kimberley Woodhouse - One Free Book

Dear Readers. Kimberley is a good friend and one of my favorite authors. (I know. I have a lot of favorites.) I just love all of her books. I think you will, too.

Welcome back, Kimberley. Tell us about your salvation experience.
I grew up in a wonderful Christian Home. My father is a pastor and I came to understand my need for a Savior at a very young age. I know that I’m very fortunate to have the growing up years that I had. My whole life has been in full-time ministry. My husband is also a pastor and we’ve been serving together for almost thirty years. Between being a pastor’s wife and my writing ministry, life is full. God is good.

You’re planning a writing retreat where you can only have four other authors. Who would they be and why?
Tracie Peterson, Becca Whitham, Karen Ball, Kayla Woodhouse, Darcie Gudger because they are my Crit group.

Yes, our crit groups are always important to us writers. Do you have a speaking ministry? If so, tell us about that.
I speak and teach every year to tens of thousands of people around the country. A lot of times it’s about just writing, and a lot of times it’s about our family’s journey. Sometimes it’s both.
I speak to writers’ groups, churches, women’s groups, retreats, conferences, etc.

What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you and how did you handle it?
Oh goodness – one time for a speaking engagement at a mega-church (where it was televised too) they cued me to go on stage too soon. The band was starting another song. So I turned right back around and waved at the audience. Lol. (And that’s not the only time that has happened! Ha!)

People are always telling me that they’d like to write a book someday. I’m sure they do to you, too. What would you tell someone who came up to you and said that?
I get asked that pretty much everywhere I go. I encourage people that if God has given them a story, they need to learn the craft so that they can tell that story to the very best of their ability for the glory of God. And I always ask them if they are willing to do a ton of work.

Good answer. Tell us about the featured book.
Can Olivia survive the crime and Gold Rush fever of 1849...and the countless marriage proposals?
A series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.

The Daughters of the Mayflower series continues when Olivia Brighton finds herself widowed and working in her brother’s restaurant in San Francisco during the height of the rush for gold. Even though she receives at least twenty marriage proposals a day, she will never marry a gold miner. Her brother’s friend Joseph Sawyer has gotten caught up in local politics and the plight of Chinese in forced labor. The more Joseph gets pulled into investigating crime in the city, the less Olivia sees of the compassionate man. And just when she thinks she could love again, a fire threatens to steal all hope.

This sounds interesting. I know I’m going to love it.

Hello from a cool and overcast Texas! I know the Gold Rush era was a trying time, and a fire would make it more devastating. I’d love to see how Kimberly Woodhouse writes about it. I’ve read some of her books, so I know I would enjoy it, as I’ve read a few of The Mayflower Brides series.

What an interesting story! Sounds like a good read and I would enjoy reading it. Would like to see what happens to her brother's friend as he tries to help Chinese immigrants and others. Vivian Furbay of CO

I love being "educated" through historical fiction. The stories are usually so well-researched and usually contain information that I never knew about the history of my country. I look forward to reading this one.

I just finished the Daughters of the Mayflower book which was set during the War of 1812, and I had read two others of the earlier books. This is a very educational and interesting series! Thank you for the informative interview. Jane - TX
