Kate Hall5 Stars Out Of 5February 20, 2003Kate HallThis is one of the best books I've ever read. There were so many emotions going through me that I found myself literally gripping the book because I couldn't express them. I reminisced, I cried, I almost jumped for joy. Great book! I can't wait to read her other books!

Tell us a little about yourself. I am writing full-time for the Christian market, in the genres of women's fiction and suspense. I also have a how-to book on writing fiction, called GETTING INTO CHARACTER, releasing in April 2002. Christianbook.com did an interview with me, so you can always go to that for more inside scoop. Or visit my Web page at www.brandilyncollins.com.
What was your motivation behind this project? When I was five, I colored the sidewalk with my best friend the day her newborn brother was brought home from the hospital. From that real- life event sprang the story of Celia and the hopelessly broken relationship with her mother, and Celia's ill-fated love for Danny.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope the theme shines through: that God is the Ultimate Healer of broken relationships. We can cause ourselves a lot of pain by holding on to past hurts and bitterness. But God is a whole lot bigger than our frailties.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Sources of inspiration--life. I constantly watch people, watch myself, mentally record emotions, reactions. I'll use bits and pieces from my own life, as with the sidewalk-coloring, which took place 40 years ago (long before sidewalk chalk was invented!).
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: This story is dear to my heart. This story so grabbed me that there were times I couldn't stop writing--I wrote all day and all night. I laughed and cried while writing this story. Got caught up in its passion. I hope you will too.
