Tell us a little about yourself. First of all, my heart belongs to Jesus. My husband of 40 years, our five adult children, their spouses and our eight grandkids squeeze into my heart, expanding it daily. I've been writing in earnest for over ten years. Never had time before! Jim and I owned a country inn in the Pocono Mountains of PA for eleven years and I met so many interesting people. Some of them appear, though disguised, in my novels. While at the inn, I sold a lot of my original oil paintings and used my ability to play the piano to accompany my guests in sing-alongs. I also cooked, ran art workshops and cleaned rooms - when need be. I enjoy my new writing life and use my fiction to drop seeds of faith and words of encouragement.
What was your motivation behind this project? Each of my novels is about people facing real life problems from a Christian perspective. Even though we have God, we still live in a fallen world and there are temptations and difficulties that try our souls. My characters are people you can relate to - people you will end up caring about. I prefer realism over fantasy. My husband and I are landlords, so it wasn't difficult to find a story line. Plus, I'm a cat lover, and definitely can relate to my heroine and her insistence on keeping her pet!
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope my readers will find encouragement in their walk with Christ - through the valleys as well as the high points. There is humor in this novel and I hope it will bring smiles to your day.
