During a monthly meeting of a writer’s group I attend, I was given three prompts to use in a story: faded coveralls, dusty baseball cap, wedding dress designer. I wrote a short story which turned into a novella and then a novel.
Tell us about your research process.
I research as I write to some extent, then dig into much deeper research as I edit. I travel to places sometimes but often use the internet to look up information or watch videos.
What impact did your research have on you personally?
Even though my father was wheelchair bound much of his adult life, the research I did to make Jessie a well-rounded character really impacted my life. There are some amazing physically-challenged people in our world that are making a difference in their family and community.
How do you see yourself in your character’s story, if at all?
I see a little bit of me in everyone. The grandfather, Homer has a melancholy personality like me and I relate to him too well, I’m afraid. 😊
While you were writing Jessie’s Hope, do you think it mattered where the book was set?
Definitely. One reason I write Southern fiction is because I’ve lived in Alabama most of my life and have experienced Southern life firsthand. I think it makes my writing more authentic.

My thoughts: Ms. Eavenson has a voice that just reaches out and reels readers in. THE RESCUE is a historical romance but it is also filled with edge-of-your-seat suspense. I could hardly read the chapters fast enough and *had* to find out what was happening next.
I enjoyed getting to know Rosalind and Trent and sympathized with both of them. My heart hurt for them and I wanted them to find happiness.

We remember this: “Our citizenship is in Heaven, and we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body” (Philippians 3:20-21)
