What was your favorite book as a child?
THE NUN’S STORY, by Katherine Hulme. As a Baptist, the world of the convent was totally foreign to me, and I was fascinated by that lifestyle.
What book did you read that first made you want to be an author?
LOL. I’ve never thought about this, because being a writer was completely off my radar, but then again, in the seventh grade I did try to write a detective story that was hauntingly similar to Nancy Drew. So I suppose I have to credit all the Nancy Drew books for that. 🙂
What was the last book you read, just for fun?
Twelve years ago I started a book club to force myself to read for fun. And we’re now reading THE DIVORCE PAPERS, an epistolary novel. I’ve only just begun to read, so I haven’t formed an opinion yet.
What upcoming release are you most looking forward to?
My book on Esther. I have always loved Esther, but I’m convinced that the Bible only gives us a tiny sliver of her life. I’ve done a lot of research into Persian society and history, so I am eager to flesh that picture out. The book will release next spring from Bethany House.
