Welcome, Melony. What would you like our readers to know about you personally?
I am been blessed to part of a writers group who have been my loudest cheerleaders and dearest friends. And writing our devotional together bonded us in such a way that we are like family. God knew what He was doing when he put us together. We still meet and cheer each other on after all these years.
That is a special blessing. Tell us about your family.
My husband and I were born in
Africa and we arrived in ,
to make a new home in 1999. I now have two Canadian teenagers and have made a
life with my beloved husband, although the winters are a tad too long for my
liking. Toronto, Canada
Have you written other nonfiction books?
I am honored to be included in an all-Canadian anthology called, Christmas with Hot Apple Cider, where I was able to tell the story of our first new year’s eve in
from the perspective of new immigrant who was still getting used to North
American ways. Canada
I’d love to feature that book during this year’s Christmas season. Do you have any other books in the works right now?
Yes, I am dabbling in fiction at the moment. I write Contemporary Romance with a dash, okay, a large helping of humor on the side. My aim is to bring laughter and escape to those who are facing the difficulties of life. I’m also in the midst of revisions on a YA Rom Com.
I’d love to feature those when they are published. What kinds of hobbies and leisure activities do you enjoy?
Does drinking coffee and eating chocolate count as hobbies? I sure hope they do. I excel at those. I also am good at answering to the demands my two cats put on me. When they are that cute, I am helpless to resist. I also love to read. And if I won the lottery, I’d travel more.
Why did you write the featured book?
Our writers group wanted to write a devotional that would inspire and uplift writers and speakers. We particularly felt it was important to address issues pertaining to writers and the challenges we face. It was important to us to include a writing prompt at the end of each entry so that there would be a call to action.
Sounds wonderful. I look forward to reading my copy. What do you want the reader to take away from the book?
First, my co-authors and I want the reader to be inspired and to know they are not alone in their journey. As Christians, faith plays a role in what we write because of our worldview and how we write because we do it with and for Christ.
Is there anything else you’d like to tell my readers about you or your book?
The book of 90 devotions is divided into themed sections: The Craft, Inspiration, Know Yourself, Well-Being, Personalities, and Faithfulness. This enables the reader to pick out whatever they need on any given day based on which themes appeal to them at the time.
Please give us the first page or two from the book.
