Author/Artist Review

Author: Joyce Wheeler

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I enjoy reading and writing books and probably my favorite author is Agatha Christie. After my own children were grown, and had children of their own, I decided to pursue a lifelong ambition, and write fictional novels. I love to write about the area I've lived in all my life. With a background of country living and an inventive mindset, my novels contain likeable characters who step from the prairie right into my books.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  Goodbye, Belvidere is a series with 'A hundred and sixty acres' as the introduction to CJ Crezner and his journey from being a minister's son in Missouri to a cattleman in South Dakota. I have always been interested in the homesteading era. There are many facets in depicting this time and the people and events involved. But mainly, I wanted to tell the story of the foreigners who came with high hopes, and often left with broken dreams.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I've researched this project a great deal. I hope folks gain some new appreciation of history and learn some new facts about homesteading. I also hope they can identify with CJ Crezner, and learn from some of his struggles.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I often wondered why I was always drawn to the history of this area. I've appreciated anew the forethought the instigators of our county history books had. Because of them, I could check and double check facts, and also weave some stories from our early day settlers into 'Goodbye, Belvidere'. My grandparents and my husbands grandparents were homesteaders in this area, and their stories have become fascinatingly real to me as I write the 'Goodbye, Belvidere' series.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  The Bible inspires me. The writing is beautiful, the story doesn't drag, and the message is unmistakable. Plus, I need a daily dose of God's Word. I also enjoy reading books that are fast paced, humorous, and help me see a different way of life. I like Agatha Christie for all these reasons.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I so appreciate all my readers. You are the motivation I need to keep writing!
