What made you go from devotionals to fiction and nonfiction?
I followed the stories that God placed in my heart. I’m not saying He told me to write them, but the ideas that I get I feel do come from him. At first it was contemporary fiction, then I was led to write about the journey my family took to become well blended. Now I’m writing a historical fiction novel. I love the surprising way God works.
Do you use your family and friends as characters?
No, but I use some of the traits they exhibit. One character may be a composition of 3 friends and a stranger I saw at the grocery store.
What has God taught you through writing?
Patience and trust that the words will come when it’s time. Every night I ask Him for words for the next day. Some days there are many words and others only a few, that’s when I need the patience.
