Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a Christian author of 8 books to date, one won the CBC Gold Award for Published Childrens Books 1998. I live quietly in England and love the countryside. I edit books and write.
What was your motivation behind this project? As I said, my influence and motivation was to hopefully encourage young girls to be able to look at important issues like sex and see how important these issues are to God... and to follow him.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope they'll be challenged to look to Jesus for advice on how to live the best life, and to resist the kind of peer pressure that will lead them down a path that could end in pain.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? For this book, I guess I was influenced to show young people, young girls in particular, how important it is to say no when being pressed into wrong action.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I have written a novel for adults and older teens, Watchers, published by Authentic Lifestyle. This futuristic book deals with a whole range of issues including the 'youth and beauty' culture.
