Tell us a little about yourself. I can write about women who do too much, because I have been one. But also because I have taught seminars on the subject for twelve years and listened to other women's stories. Women tend to convey truth through story. I hope my book will convey to readers that God has a purpose for their lives and they are not required by God to do all things for all people.
What was your motivation behind this project? A yearning to reawaken in women the capacity to dream we all had as children, and to encourage women to see their deepest yearnings as God-given dreams which God can help them fulfill if they'll clear out the things they are doing they don't need to do and even are not supposed to be doing.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Shalom, that marvelous Hebrew word that encompasses peace, health, salvation, wholeness, prosperity, success and well-being. God claims in Jeremiah 29:11 to have a plan for Shalom for us. I hope women will begin to seek that plan and put aside whatever hinders them from reaching it.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Four of my greatest influences as a writer were C.S. Lewis, Dorothy Sayers, Frederick Beuchner and Madeleine L'Engle. I appreciate the way they all write in several genres from a Christian perspective, but in ways that non-Christian readers can appreciate, as well. I also have learned much from Elizabeth Goudge, whose descriptions make you want to stop and read them rather than skipping on to the action.
