|Please give a background on yourself?
I was raised in Edmond,Oklahoma.I went to one school from kindergarten through my senior year;a wonderful experience.Then I went to Oklahoma City University where I received a mass communications degree and specialty in screenwriting.
After college, God just moved on my heart to write dramas,cast them and run the drama team, for a church. It was really fun. My husband and I created a drama troupe called the "Christian Theater Company”at that same time.
God worked so wonderfully. I was working at church for five years. My husband was a worship leader. That was the time I sold my first book, "Ghostwriter" AND had my first child, John Caleb. God telling me I can do both. My husband was a huge help and I depended on the Holy Spirit so much.
I still write church dramas and have published with www.drama ministries.com
What made you write “Boo”?
Most of my books come from a question.I am a very curious person. When I meet someone, I want to know the background on that person,where are they from? and, what’s their story?
So you’re the Missy Peeple, the character from “Boo” (laughing)
Yes, hopefully in a more Godly way.
I am insanely curious about life and people. I think “Boo” was sparked by the question, "What would happen if a famous horror novelist became a Christian"? It is the whole idea of,“What if somebody who is a tremendous persuader in this culture,became a Christian; how does that affect everyone around them?”
Then "Boo" progressed into a comedy. I saw these characters in my head and saw this little town. Then I started thinking about the person. He doesn’t have a lot of people around him, he’s a solitary dude.
