Everyone has life’s challenges and can face them with fear or with trust. I choose to look at them as experiences where God blessed me with His curve balls thrown in. These curve balls are not the negative, painful or abusive life experiences that I have lived through, but rather the unexpected, blessings, gifts, and graces God threw in to help me through the experiences. I believe that these curve balls were given so that I can witness to His great and awesome presence in and through the experiences, the people in those experiences and in myself as living through and surviving the experiences as a better, not bitter human being.

Question1- Do you listen to music while writing? If so, what do you listen to?

Contemporary Christian and instrumental.

Question2- Do you have any suggestions for upcoming writers?

Be true to yourself and your calling to write. If you have a desire to write then there is something that you are being called to share and someone can benefit by your story.

Question3- What is it you like to do when you are not reading/writing?

Spend time with my husband, enjoying time my golden retriever and my cat, watching old time TV shows, being outside in God’s creation and catching up with friends.

Question4- Is there an author/authors that have inspired you?

Tony DeMello, Henri Nouwen and Erma Bombeck.

Question5- As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a nun.

Question6- How do you/would you react to a bad review of your book?

People are entitled to their own opinion. I would want to hear why they had a bad review so as to respond to it. It is a book about the painful life experiences that I have lived through and my message of hope and healing. If someone does not recognize the message, then I would ask what it is that they are unable to accept or recognize in their own life and what is keeping them from being truly free.
