Do your characters begin to take on a life of their own as you write?
Oh, yes. They tell me all kinds of things.
What other new projects do you have on the horizon?
A Christmas novella, River Walk Christmas will be out in September 2010. The second of the Prairie Winds series, Morning for Dove, will be released in May 2010. I am now in the midst of book 3, Finding Becky.
What have you been reading lately?
Christmas themed books. It’s what I read from Thanksgiving to New Years.
What message would you like your readers to take from Becoming Lucy?
With God’s perfect love, we can overcome any circumstances that may come and grow into stronger Christians because of them.
What is your greatest achievement?
I would say my family. We have three sons, three daughters-in-law, nine grandchildren, a grand-son-in law and a great-grandson. The men are all active in their churches and all but the 2 youngest are believers. That’s quite an achievement with all the temptations and distractions in the world today.
What is your goal or mission as a writer?
To illustrate God’s perfect love and forgiveness and to show that reconciliation is possible no matter how difficult the separation. My tag line is Touching Hearts….Changing Lives, and that’s what I want to accomplish.
What do you do to get away from it all? Well, since I’m a people person, I don’t like to be alone for very long. We’re retired so my husband is always around. Once in a while, we’ll take a trip together and enjoy being away from home for a week, but seldom longer than that.
