Tell us a little about yourself. I've been a Christian since I was 11. My husband and I have been married for 28 years now. We have two grown sons, a five-year-old daughter, and two adorable grandbabies. We are going on our 18th year of homeschooling.
What was your motivation behind this project? I wanted to give a face to the persecuted church so that when others read of persecution they would see not a statistic, but a person.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope that folks will take a deep love and desire to pray for persecuted Christians from Tiger in the Shadows. Nothing thrills me more than to hear from others that they have started praying for their persecuted brothers and sisters.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Voice of the Martyrs has had a great influence on me, as has Christian Monitor, International Christian Concern, International Justice Mission, and several other groups. I enjoy reading Tolkien, Clancy, Dee Henderson, Terri Blackstock, Mary Higgens Clark, and other fiction writers.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Tiger in the Shadows received the 2005 Christy Award for suspense. I hope that readers who enjoy a good suspense novel will give it a try.
