Why do you write the kind of books you do?
I write Christian fiction, and I can’t imagine myself writing anything else. I love the stories that I create with God right in the midst of the conflict, helping my characters to see the truth based on the Word of God. What could be better than that?

That would be the day my daughter was born, and then I was overjoyed to watch both my grandchildren come into the world.
