Tell us a little about yourself. Right now I'm a "career mom" who likes to write. Eventually I'd like to be a career author who enjoys traveling and spending time with the grandchildren.
What was your motivation behind this project? I was reading through the book of Esther and started wondering what kind of personality she had. If she were an introvert like me, approaching the king would have been excruciating.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I want readers to experience the danger of the world Esther lived in and appreciate her bravery in averting a pogrom. I want them to know God can use anyone who's willing.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I learned to never give up hope. It took about ten years to write this book and become published, but God worked things out in His own perfect time.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I like historical fiction by Brock and Bodie Thoene and Lauraine Snelling. I also enjoy C.S. Lewis and Jan Karon. Sharon McAnear is one of my favorite new authors.
