That will be
wonderful. Tell us a little about your family. My husband of fifty years
passed away in March. He left a huge hole, but I am thankful he is with our
Savior and that I will see him again. We have two grown children and three
grandsons. Our son and grandsons live close by, and we often get together on

What new lessons is the Lord teaching you right now? I’m realizing more and more the importance of focusing on God, not the loss of my husband, problems, or wrong desires. He is teaching me to trust His presence in my daily life.
What are the three best things you can tell other authors to do to be successful? Learn as much as you can about the craft of writing fiction. Write about a subject that you are passionate about. Put words on the page and persevere so that you will actually finish writing a story.
