Tell us a little about yourself. Besides than writing books, I'm a stay-at-home mom of three boys ages 5, 8 and 11. I did insist on a female dog, though. My husband claims he provides me with all my romantic material, but a good imagination helps too!
What was your motivation behind this project? I have a heart for women who've been wounded, whether by abuse, rape, adultery or something else. Mending Places tackles some of these topics head-on and deals with the aftermath of being hurt by someone else: How can I forgive this person? It's a story about forgiving the unforgivable.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope readers find that Mending Places is a book of hope. Forgiveness isn't about letting someone off the hook. It's about freeing yourself of the weight you're carrying. It's not always easy, and sometimes it's a long process, but I hope readers see that God can help them do it.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I'm an avid reader of Christian fiction, so I have a lot of favorite authors. For women's fiction I love Karen Kingsbury and Kristen Heitzman. For romantic suspense I pick up Dee Henderson or Colleen Coble. And when I need a laugh, I turn to Kristin Billerbeck.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Mending Places is a story that perked in my mind for a full year before I sat down to write it. I was afraid the topic was too intense, too edgy for the Christian market. But the story wouldn't let me go, so I gave in and wrote it.
