9. What advice would you give to a person trying to become a fiction writer?
That person must first be a READER. He or she must also love to make up stories on their own. In both high school and college, I had English and literature teachers who saw the ability in me, and the love for writing, and they encouraged me to become a writer. It worked!
10. What message would you like your readers to take away from
High is the Eagle?
Whatever right and good things you believe and stand for, although you are sometimes opposed, stick by them, and like Alamo Kane, you will come out with a victorious life that is a blessing to others.
11. What is your greatest achievement?
JoAnna and I have seen our books have an effect on many lives for the cause of Christ. So many Christians have contacted us to tell us how our books have drawn then closer to the Lord, and caused them to better trust His Word. This has been a wonderful achievement. But the best achievement is that we have been contacted by so many readers who have told us that because we have the gospel and the plan of salvation in our books, they have received the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour. Hallelujah!
12. What is your goal or mission as a writer?
When I wrote secular fiction, my goal was to give my readers stories that they enjoyed, and to cause them to want to buy all the novels I would write. As JoAnna and I write our Christian novels, this goal is
still right there... but from what I wrote in answer to question number 11, our greatest goal is to affect our readers with the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ, Himself.
13. What do you do to get away from it all?
We are too busy to be able to do that!
