12.) Are you a self-published or traditional published author?


13.) What is your writing inspiration?

I get my inspiration from a lot of places, but I would say the biggest inspiration is my family.

14.) What genre do you write?

I like to bounce around. I write historical fiction, contemporary mystery, sci-fi, and Kingdom Fiction (fictional medieval location but feels like history)

15.) Do you have any writing rituals?

I try to pray before I start writing for the day. I want each book to be what God wants it to be. I also normally have something to drink at hand, iced or hot tea is a favorite. 

16.) Do you have a specific place you write or time? 

I have a table in my room that I sit at most of the time. You can normally find me there between the hours of 8-6. I treat my writing like a job.

17.) Do you have any advice for aspiring writers? 

Write what you feel God is calling you to write, not what the world tells you is popular. Stay surrendered to Jesus.

18.) What are your writing goals?

That each book impacts at least one life for Jesus. If one person is brought closer to Jesus because of my book, it is worth it. 

19.) What authors inspire you and your writing?

Grace Livingston Hill, Linda Lee Chaikin, Alicia Willis, J. Grace Pennington, and many more

20.) What will be your next release?

I just released a non-fiction book about my family called There Was Always Laughter in Our House. My next release will be the third Kate’s Case Files book.
