God gives everyone a purpose, and it’s not what happens to us but what we make of what happens that matters.
What other books of yours are coming out soon?
This featured book, Autumn Vindication, is the first in my Seasons of Mystery series. The winter book will come out soon and I’m currently writing the spring book.
If you could spend an evening with one contemporary person (not a family member of yours), who would it be and why?
The author, Ruth Logan Herne. She is a prolific writer of faith-based fiction who I’d love to chat with about story ideas and how she organizes her writing time.
What historical person would you like to meet (besides Jesus) and why?
George Washington. I’d love to talk to him about his thoughts and feelings during the days our country fought for independence.
How can you encourage authors who have been receiving only rejections from publishers?
Don’t quit. Study the craft and if the rejection includes suggestions learn from it. I entered ACFW Genesis and the suggestions were extremely helpful.
