Tell me more about your latest book

Hello God, Do You Care? Came about during my recovery from shoulder surgery. Once I was allowed to start typing again, I quickly learned why it was only for a limited time. It hurt. One morning as I woke the idea popped into my head, that if I were to write one page a day, by the end of the month I would have completed a Hello God book, while strengthen my shoulder. Each night I would pray for the inspiration for the next page, and in the morning I would have it. This was the fastest and easiest book I have even written. Even the photograph for the cover was a gift from God. I prayed for the cardinal to land on that branch and he did.

What was the most challenging aspect of writing this book?

I had just had rotor cuff surgery, and was only allow to type for a limited time a day. Pushing through the pain actually helped inspire some of the pages in this book.

What is your normal procedure to get your books published?

I self-publish with Year of The Book Publishing. Before I send it to them, I pass my book on to three others to read, edit and give me their impression. My editor has the gift of taking my words to the next level.

Do you view writing as a kind of spiritual practice?

I believe my writing is my mission field. My devotionals are meant to encourage and give you hope, in a world that has almost seem to have lost it. With my photographs I hope to awaken the beauty of God’s nature and touch your soul. My romance novels I also hope to touch your heart and give you that happy glow that comes from reading a heart-warming book.

How many books have you written so far?

I have published seven books so far. Four are in the Hello God Series they are devotionals:

Hello God Are You There?

Hello God, It’s Me Again

 Hello God, Can You Hear Me?

And the newest one Hello God, Do You Care?

I also have three romance novels.

No Regrets, a romantic suspense,

Tulips of Love

and A Memory Like You, both contemporary romances.

What’s the best way to market your books?

The marketing that works best for me has been to do a lot of book signings.

How hard or easy is it to establish and maintain a career in writing?

Staying motivated to write is not always easy, but when a character gets into my head they won’t leave me alone, so I have no choice but to write. As for a career, my dream is to someday be able to quit the day job, and write fulltime.

What is your advice for aspiring writers?

If you want to be an author you need to write. Don’t second guess yourself and give into self-doubt. Your book is inside of you for a reason, you need to pull it out and share it with the world.
