Tell us a little about yourself. I live in Missouri with my husband, three children, a cat and our new puppy. I am a stay-at-home mom, a substitute teacher, volunteer and freelance writer. I have a new Arch book about Moses and the Ten Plagues coming out in July, and I hope to write more in the coming months.
What was your motivation behind this project? I've loved Arch books ever since I was a little girl, and have always wanted to write one. I was so excited that my story was chosen for the Arch series that I kept the message from my editor on my answering machine for months! I picked Mary Magdalene as a subject because she experienced such a range of emotions during Jesus' death and resurrection, from despair and uncertaintly to joy and elation. What a privilege to be the first person to see the resurrected Savior!
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope that readers experience the joy of Jesus' resurrection every time they read Mary Magdalene's Easter Story.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I am very impressed with the illustrations that Ed Koehler provided for this book. I understand that he is also an accomplished Christian cartoonist.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: It's easy in today's busy society to put Jesus into the background. I've recently been reminded how important it is to "Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all curcumstances" (1 Thes 5:16-18).
