Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a busy wife and mom, who has always loved to write--and who often struggles to find the time to write. I've been married for 27 years. My husband and I are spread all over the parenting spectrum with children ages 24, 21, 19--and 6!! And I've just experienced the joy of having my son get married, so now I have a wonderful "daughter-in-love." For me, the most wonderful earthly gift God has ever given me is my family.
What was your motivation behind this project? Writers are told to write what they know. Writing Baby Changes Everything meant I wrote what I lived--my experience as a late-in-life mom, as well as the experiences of other late-in-moms and dads. I wanted to write a book that was faith based and that examined how having a child later in life affected the entire family.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I want a late-in-life mom--a mommmy-come-lately--to be encouraged to embrace her status as an older mom. I want her to have practical information about how this will change her family relationships--and how to handle those changes. I want her to be informed about the avalanche of medical information most late-in-life moms run into.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? One of the best things about writing Baby Changes Everything was talking with all the other mommies-come-lately--and the dads too. Their stories are the highlight of the book. I was so impressed with how they completely embraced their life as older parents, no matter what the challenges.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I am an avid fan of Siri Mitchell, Liz Curtis Higgs, L.M. Montgomery and Max Lucado. When I'm writing, I love to listen to Mercy Me or contemporary praise and worship music. Steven Curtis Champman is always a favorite.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: It's never too late to pursue your dream. For a while, I chose to veer off the "writing road" while I focused on motherhood. Little did I know what God had planned for me when I was 41: an unexpected blessing--and a book that I hope encourages other late-in-life moms.
